Mukesh Bhatt plans third installment of Jannat

Mumbai: The makers of Emraan Hashmi-starrer `Jannat` have planned to make it into a franchise with a third installment in the offing.

The 2008 hit film `Jannat` starring Emraan Hashmi revolved around betting in cricket, while `Jannat 2` is about illegal trading in arms and ammunition, again featuring Emraan. "We intend to take the franchise forward. There will be another films in the series.. we would have `Jannat 3` etc as well," producer Mukesh Bhatt, told PTI.

"As we plan to make it a franchise, like how `Jannat` was about cricket, `Jannat 2` about illegal arms trade, the other stories in the series would be on different subjects," he said.
`Jannat` was released during IPL in 2008 and even now `Jannat 2` would be hitting the screens on May 4 during the fifth season of the cricket tournament.

The makers are confident about the fate of the sequel at the box office. "We are sure that audience will like the movie. No matter what would be the fate of the film, we would still make the third part," he said.

On retaining the title, Mukesh, said, "Why should it be titled something else and not `Jannat 2`. I feel `Jannat 2` could not be titled anything else.. Despite having a different story, it has a flavour of `Jannat`."
