No Sadma sequel with Sridevi: Kamal Haasan
Says Haasan, “There are no plans of a film with Sridevi. And this idea of a sequel to Sadma is preposterous. We did the story twice over in Tamil and Hindi. I am sure she is as bored of it as I am. Much as I would like to work with her again, I’ve no script that would do justice to her especially after English Vinglish.”
Sridevi has gone on-record to say she has learnt much about acting from Haasan. “If she says so, then I must say she’s good learner. The amount she invests into her role is exemplary. There’s a dispute between Sridevi and me about how many films we’ve done together. She says it’s around 25 films. I say it’s a lot more,” laughs Haasan.
The actor also cuts down talk of a sequel to his 1981 hit Ek Duje Ke Liye which had launched his career in Hindi cinema.
“We had a story idea of how to take the narration forward. But it was used by another director for a project. So the director, K Balachanderji and I decided we wouldn’t get into that space again.”

Earlier feature: Kamal Haasan with Sridevi again?
and even before that, back in 2011, "Kamal Haasan wooing Sridevi"
News does seem rather predictable and cyclical eh?!
