Back in 2014 we saw the release of yet another Vipul Shah – Akshay Kumar collaboration in the form of Holiday – A Soldier is Never Off Duty, which was met with positive feedback at the box office. Now two years on we hear that Vipul has commenced work on the sequel to the film. Confirming the same Vipul stated that he has in fact commenced work on the film and is currently working on scripting the sequel.
Further talking about the same, Vipul added that while they always knew that Holiday would materialize into a franchise, he reaffirms that the sequel isn’t being made to encash on the first film’s box office success. On the casting front, Vipul states that much like the first, Holiday 2 will once again feature Akshay Kumar in the title role, with him being on a different tour of duty. If that wasn’t all, Vipul has also decided on retaining AR Murugadoss as the director of the sequel as well, and will approach the director with a completed script soon.
However, commenting on the film going on floors, Vipul states that he will commence work on Holiday 2 once he is done with his current project Namastey England that will is slated to go on floors in August this year with a release slated for 2017.
