Umrao Jaan 2 in making

Rekha won a national award for her role in Muzaffar Ali’s Umrao Jaan (1981) and she even made the entire nation to hum the soulful songs from the film.

Umrao Jaan was Muzaffar Ali’s debut project and after directing just one more film he retired and took life of designing and poetry.

But now the talented director has decided to make a comeback in Bollywood and has asked his friend and screenplay writer of the Umrao Jaan, Javed Siddique to write the screenplay and script for the sequel.

Siddiqui said:

“Yes, I’m working on a script for Muzaffar saab and we will be working together after 30 years. The film is very much on the lines of a sequel to Umrao Jaan.”

There is a strong buzz that the makers are trying very hard to get Rekha to be a part of the cast.
