Mohit Suri's recent hit Malang is all set to have a sequel, the makers have confirmed. The musical romantic action thriller, starring Anil Kapoor, Disha Patani, Aditya Roy Kapur and Kunal Kemmu, had a successful box office run earlier this year, earning over Rs 59 crore at the domestic box-office. The film was recently released on OTT.
"We are thankful to the audience who have shown such a phenomenal response to our film Malang after the theatres, now on OTT. While people are enjoying 'Malang' on Netflix, we are coming up with 'Malang 2'. Mohit and Luv are working on the sequel and more details will follow soon," said producer Ankur Garg. Mohit is currently thrilled with the response his film is getting. He took to Twitter to congratulate the film's primary cast and crew.

A few days ago, Malang stars Anil Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, Disha Patani and Kunal Kemmu had a virtual reunion. The film is a revenge saga set in Goa and, despite gruesome moments of violence, it has catchy tunes composed by multiple music directors.
In an earlier interview with a leading daily, Mohit had hinted at a possible sequel and said, “Did you recognize whose voice was there in the last scene? There was an interesting scene in the end, we will come out with the twist of that later. Everything was unconventional about it, and then the kind of response that we got is definitely very encouraging. I got responses from people who have probably never watched my films before. In the kind of limitations we had, I think whenever you are confined, your creativity goes to break the barrier."
