Sohum Shah talks about the sequel of Tumbbad 

Although it didn't work well on box office, 2018 film 'Tumbbad' was one of the most well made films to come out of Bollywood in years. It managed to capvtivate the audience and developed a cult following as well. On several occasions, the star of the film Sohum Shah has recieved requests to work on a follow up project to the film. Sohum revealed his take on the same recently. Just like any other filmmaker true to his art, Sohum will do the film only when a script potentially as good as th original will come across.

He shared, "The writing for 'Tumbbad 2' is on, we had cracked a few story ideas too but they didn''t quite work at the screenplay level. But I am in no rush to cash in on the franchise or worry that ''what if people forget. I am not playing that game. The team is trying to crack an idea. Our aim is to make it as good as the first one, if not better. We need to get convinced with the idea first before we proceed."

'Tumbbad' was apparently so amazing as experience that fans believed that it should've been India's official entry for the Oscars. About his style of work, Shah shared, "I produce films from my heart, not from a business point of view. I put in four times more money than the original budget for ''Tumbbad''. When you start making a film, you really are pulled into it. As a businessman, I know if I can get a pay off. If a director asks for 60 days to make a film, as a producer I give 65 days because those five days will add to its quality. I give freehand to makers. The businessman mind thinks that first the film has to be good, creatively."
