Ekta Kapoor Confirms Once Upon… Sequel

It seems that producer Ekta Kapoor is very much impressed by her production venture ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai’ and again all set to come back with its sequel that has recently completed 100 days in theatres.

Directed by Milan Luthria, ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’ was released July 30. Set in the 1970s Mumbai, the Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Kangana Ranaut and Prachi Desai starrer movie follows the rise and fall of a gangster. Ekta Kapoor said in a press statement,

“The response to ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’ has been overwhelming and with ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’ earlier this year, we’ve clearly shown our versatility and mettle as creative producers. I’m sure a sequel to ‘Once Upon…’ isn’t far. We are thankful for the support received from the audience and trade alike,”

Milan Luthria is also excited with the success of the film. The filmmaker said,

“Working on ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’ has been a wonderful experience. It was a great collaboration of my creative experience, and strong production and marketing expertise provided by Balaji Motion Pictures, which helped transform my vision into the magical story we saw on screen.”
