"We are getting encouraging reports from all across the country. We had planned a sequel to 'Youngistaan all along. The success of the first part only makes us more confident of carrying on the story."
By Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, April 15 - Producer Vashu Bhagnani and debutant director Syed Ahmad Afzal have much to rejoice about. The good response to their political drama Youngistaan has encouraged them to plan a sequel to the film already.

Yes, we have a story for 'Youngistaan 2'. And seeing the response -, we'll go ahead with it, Afzal said.

At the end of 'Youngistaan' Jackky Bhagnani's character becomes the prime minister. But the actual fun begins after that. What happens after he's sworn in? How does he handle the pressures of his job? I think there is a major story waiting to be told there, said the director, who's a first-generation filmmaker in his family.

Vashu Bhagnani says that to have a sequel to the movie was always a part of their plan.

We are getting encouraging reports from all across the country. We had planned a sequel to 'Youngistaan all along. The success of the first part only makes us more confident of carrying on the story.

We had hoped that somewhere the story of a young non-political Indian taking over the reigns of the country would touch the people's heart in this charged electoral environment. I think we've succeeded, he added.
