Movie goers, especially the lovers of romance genre can never forget the 1998 classic romantic flick 'Jeans', that had south actor Prashanth donning twin roles and former Miss Asihwarya Rai who went on to become one of the most sought after divas of Bollywood, pairing up with him.
Directed by ace director Shankar of 'Robot' fame and produced by Ashok Amirtharaj, the Tamil film 'Jeans', which was dubbed in Hindi and Telugu was noted for its grand picturisation and one of the songs "Ajooba" was shot in front of 7 world wonders that gained much popularity for the film. "Hai Rabba" and "Columbus Columbus" were among other songs that had been topping the chartbusters then.
Since the current trend is positive for sequels, Prashanth's father Thiyagarajan (who is also an actor), has registered the title 'Jeans 2' with film chamber. It is reported that he will be producing the film under the Lakshmi Shanthi Movie Makers banner owned by him. It is unclear whether he himself will direct the film or someone else will be entrusted the responsibility of wielding the megaphone for this sequel.
But we wonder, if its sequel will live up to the mark set by the original in terms of heroine - given the fact it presented the gorgeous Aishwarya at her ravishing best.
