While the former isn’t biting the bait, Anupam is making hay while the sun shines.

“I keep telling Naseer we’re the new rock stars of Bollywood,” joked Anupam. I’m so happy that A Wednesday has made such an impact,” Anupam said.

“I’m at this very moment shooting for Carry On, Pandu with Om Puri. Om and I earlier did a remake of Victoria 203 with us playing Ashok Kumar and Pran’s parts. I think it should’ve come after A Wednesday. Pandu is being directed by very well-known Marathi director Chandrakant Kulkarni,” he added.

Hindi filmmakers are planning several films with the two new ‘rock stars’, including a sequel to A Wednesday.
