Some of you may or may not believe in having sentiments related to work and success but in film industry it runs very high. One such sentiment is the number 2 behind the title of a film indicating it is a sequel of sorts. But unfortunately, this has proved only to be a bane than a boon.

For instance, the Bollywood movie Dabanng was a super blockbuster but its sequel didn’t work like that. Similarly, when the eccentric genius Ram Gopal Varma made Satya it worked very well but Satya 2 flopped miserably. The same happened with his other project Rakta Charitra as well.

Now, another Bollywood movie has met the same fate. We are talking about the film Ab Tak Chappan starring Nana Patekar. The first edition was a superb hit and now the sequel has come but reports are very negative. For some reason, the sequels are not working with number 2 behind them. Hope it is just a coincidence and not a sentiment.
