Anil Kapoor and Govinda graced the stage Nach Baliye with their presence. Apart from entertaining the audience, the duo also announced the sequel of the 1997 film Deewana Mastana. Titled Deewana Mastana 2, the film will mark the reunion of Anil and Govinda after 12 years. The two previously worked in Salaam-e-Ishq that released in 2007.
Suggesting that the film might also star John Abraham, Anil Kapoor announced Deewana Mastana 2 by saying, “Since Govinda and I have met after a long time, I would like to announce Deewana Mastana 2. This time we can have John Abraham too.” On meeting Anil after a long time, Govinda was quoted as saying, “Anil Kapoor is one of the most genuine people I have met and worked within my life. He is my senior and I always looked up to him but I was very scared to talk to him. But Anil was always so cordial that he never made me feel any different from him.”Apparently, Raveena Tandon, who had a cameo role in the first instalment, will make an appearance in the sequel too. Apart from Deewana Mastana and Salaam-e-Ishq, Anil Kapoor and Govinda have previously worked together in the 1990 film Awaargi.
