Mumbai: Actress Sonali Bendre, who played the female lead in the 1999 action film 'Sarfarosh', feels a sequel to the movie should be made though she is not keen to star in it.

Directed and written by John Matthew Matthan, 'Sarfarosh' dealt with a police officer's poise and determination to crush cross-border terrorism.

The film starred Aamir Khan as ACP Ajay Singh Rathod, Sonali as his love interest and veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah in a negative role.

"There should be a sequel to 'Sarfarosh'. It was a different film. John is a great man... and he should write a sequel and I am sure he will excel in it (sic)," Sonali said.

Earlier, even Aamir had evinced interest in the second installment of the film.

The actor had said, "In case of a sequel to 'Sarfarosh' one can show how the character of ACP Rathod gets a new case to solve. Though John is not writing the sequel but conceptually I don't mind. But next part should be different, new and something interesting."

The film did moderately well at the box office and was declared as an "above average" grosser.

"I would be happy to do 'Sarfarosh 2'. The script should be as good as the first one. I don't want to destroy the goodwill of the first one," Aamir had said.

Sonali, however, is not so keen to act in the sequel and is happy with her reality television stint.
