While the 2014 thriller is remembered for all the positive reasons, speculations about its sequel have been doing rounds over the internet for a while now.
As per the latest report, the makers of the actioner have finally decided to take the sequel on the floors and as per the source close to the development of the project, director Mohit Suri narrated the script to John Abraham and Aditya Roy Kapur some time ago.
