In the capacity of producer/director, Vipul Shah is the name behind major films like Aankhen, Waqt, Namastey London, Holiday, Commando and Force. The filmmaker is now making Force 2 and Commando 2 and has also announced Namastey England which harks back to the success of his 2007 hit Namastey London. While insisting that, “Namastey England is not a sequel to Namastey London,” Vipul talks about the culture of sequels and why he is producing Force 2.

“There’s no point making a sequel for the sake of it,” Vipul maintains. “After the first Force, John Abraham (its leading man) and I decided to make a sequel but we wanted the best possible story. We felt like this is a character which is so strong that we can’t just let it die. This character has to tell more stories and that is how Force 2 took birth. Eventually, after a long search, when we met Abhinay Deo and writers Parvez and Jasmeet, this story got discussed, it evolved, and everybody got involved. First John and later Sonakshi also participated in the discussions which was very important for us to take it to the next level.
