Five years after Abhinay Deo made a splash with his directorial venture Delhi Belly, he returns with his next film, Force 2.  

Why has it taken you five years after a successful film like Delhi Belly to come up with your next film, Force 2?
As filmmakers we all go with our heart -- we make what excites our system, whether it takes five years or five months. Probably my next film will be in three months from now. I am not time driven. After Delhi Belly I read 47 scripts; Force 2 was the 48th  and that’s what I am working on. I suppose 47 scripts can take a while to read — that’s where the five years went.

For you, what was most special about Force 2?
What was really amazing for all of us was that we worked as a team; as one unit and we got each other’s back. We have tried every way possible to ‘up’ the game and we did that together. Whether it’s Vipul Shah as a producer, John Abraham as a producer-actor, all of us really just held each other’s hand through this film and made it special.

Has the film turned out the way you had planned it?
Better! When we sat with a piece of paper with the writers Parvez and Jasmeet, I kept feeling that this is the right thing to do. I go with my gut instincts.
Today, when we have finished the shooting and almost done our edit, I see the film and I say ‘This is what we had set out to do.’ I believe it’s gone beyond our expectations.
