Mumbai: A sequel to Ajay Devgn's debut film-Phool Aur Kaante-is on the cards and Sonakshi Sinha to replace Madhoo in the sequel to Devgn's debut film made two decades ago.

Producer Dinesh Patel confirms, "I am proud that I launched Ajay Devgn with my film Phool Aur Kaante, and today he is an actor worth around Rs 100 crore after his successful Singham. I am all set to launch the sequel of

Phool Aur Kaante with Ajay in the lead. The film will be titled Phool Aur Kaante 2."

Patel informs that the lead actress of the original film Madhoo will not be roped in for the sequel. "I plan to cast

Sonakshi Sinha as I have a great rapport with her father Shatrughan Sinha.

We are in talks with her. Sonakshi will make a great pair with Ajay. Since she has not yet been paired with him in any film, it will be the casting coup," he adds.

Though Patel refused to divulge whether Kohli would be brought back to direct the sequel, insiders insist that Ajay has suggested Rohit Shetty (the actor's current favourite) be signed to direct this sequel.
