  • The 2011 moderately successful Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster, starred Jimmy Shergill, Mahie Gill and Randeep Hooda in the lead. The sequel Sahib Biwi and Gangster Returns is scheduled to release in India on March 8

Filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia says that his upcoming film, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns has the right amount of sensuality, stressing it is very important for a film to have the right amount of sex and passion for it to remain effective.

“There is sensuality but in little measure. I feel that it is effective only like that. It should have the right amount of sex and passion,” he said at the first look and trailer launch of the film held Thursday evening.

Directed by Dhulia, the film stars Jimmy Shergill, Mahie Gill, Irrfan Khan and Soha Ali Khan.

The director said that he had already sowed the seed of the sequel in the previous film and has taken the story forward in this film.

“We had left the germ of the sequel in the previous film itself. It is not a franchise and we are taking the story ahead,” he said.

The director doesn’t expect his stars to come prepared on the set, said the actors.

“I know Tigmanshu from Haasil. You can’t come prepared on the sets. I just follow him blindly,” said Shergill.

Irrfan Khan’s character also a new element added in the sequel.

“Tigmanshu has tried to experiment with my role. He didn’t give me expected dialogues and has tried to give me something new. I am waiting to see the response to this,” Irrfan said.

Soha thinks the film has depth.

“There is a lot of mystery in the film and situations keep changing throughout the film. No character is black or white in the film, all of them have shades of grey,” she said.

The film all set to release in India on March 8.
