Directed by Faruk Kabir, Khuda Haafiz was inspired by a real-life incident from 2008, when a man went out to rescue his wife, abducted and forced into human trafficking in the UAE. The second chapter will take the love story of the lead characters Sameer (Jammwal) and Nargis (Shivaleeka Oberoi) forward. Sameer getting his wife back is not the perfect ending of their story, said Jammwal.
Kabir said he always had a sequel in mind but wanted to wait for the audience’s response.“Khuda Haafiz Chapter II is a more potent and heartfelt love story about how the lead characters come to terms with what has happened to them,” the director added.
Produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak (Panorama Studios) and co-produced by Sanjeev Joshi and Aditya Chowksey, Khuda Haafiz Chapter II is expected to go on floors early next year.
