More 'Special 26' films in the pipeline?

'Special 26' sequel, franchise in offing?

Following the success of the Akshay Kumar-starrer Special 26, the makers have now hit upon the idea of more films on the same line.

Akshay Kumar in the role of a fake CBI officer, carrying out mock-raids across the country in Special 26 has gone down well with the audience. Now, the film's production company, Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, is keen to carry the heist tale forward into not only a sequel, but an ongoing franchise.

The one who is most relieved and happy is director Neeraj Pandey, who had his fingers crossed about the success of his second feature film. His first was the critically acclaimed A Wednesday.

Both of Pandey's films so far have adapted the thriller format. But he now intends to change tracks.

"I actually wanted to start my career with a love story. But then 'A Wednesday' happened, and now 'Special 26'. I may go back to love now. I haven't decided," he said.

But as of now, a sequel to 'Special 26', is being given an added push. Viacom 18 Motion Pictures is keen to start the sequel at the earliest, and Akshay too is reportedly willing to dole out the dates.

"I've left the ending open. We saw Akshay's character leave the country with his girl. It would now be interesting to see what happens to him and his colleagues. Let's see."

Pandey believes "less was at stake in 'A Wednesday' as it didn't feature any major stars".

"But 'Special 26' featured Akshay Kumar and we were anxious to see how audiences react to his character and performance. Fortunately, the audiences have embraced Akshay's unusual performance. All the actors were my first choices and I was glad that they agreed to be part of this project.

"Though it took time, I consider myself lucky. The response to the film has been very good," he added.

"Special 26", which also features Kajal Aggarwal, released Feb 8.
