And so the story continues. It is not a sequel but an altogether new Kahaani that is set to unravel later this year. Vidya Balan took to Twitter to post a video announcing the release date of Kahaani 2.

With the tagline of ‘Another mother of a story', Kahaani 2 stars Vidya Balan and Arjun Rampal. Sujoy Ghosh and his team began shooting for the film in March this year. The film is scheduled to be released on 25 November 2016.

Kahaani won several awards, including Filmfare Best Picture, and also got the Filmfare Best Actress award for Vidya Balan. Interestingly, after Kahaani, Vidya Balan has found the going rather tough with four successive flops.

A few years ago, it was reported that Kahaani 2 had been shelved because Sujoy Ghosh could not come up with an interesting enough script. Vidya Balan, too, was said to be not keen on the second film.

However, the spate of flops appears to have prompted her to reunite with Sujoy Ghosh. Apart from Kahaani 2, Vidya Balan will be seen in Sujoy Ghosh’s co-production TE3N in June this year.
