Earlier in an interview, Satish Kaushik had split the beans on doing Tere Naam 2. The actor once recalled that Salman Khan had rejected doing Tere Naam 2 as he felt the character sent the wrong message. He once told Indian Express, “Making the same film and getting the same performance out of Salman will be difficult… Salman always said the film is good and will definitely work. But the character gives a wrong message in it. There was a debate on Kabir Singh too. Kabir Singh was an adapted copy of Tere Naam.” Also Read: Tu Jhoothi Mein Makkar Box Office Collection Day 1: Ranbir-Shraddha Starrer Film Is Expected To Make Rs. 16 Cr On Day 1 – Report

Satish Kaushik had said later, “As a filmmaker, your responsibility, whether you want to show such a love story or not, is a different issue altogether. One would definitely want to avoid that (today). You can’t fall in love with someone who’s said no to you. But that’s what passion was all about then, where you won’t take no from a person.”

The later actor had further called Tere Naam a popular brand because of Salman Khan so much that news starts doing the rounds every year. He had later confirmed that he has a script for Tere Naam 2 “and of the same intensity, but he hasn’t discussed it with Salman.” Also Read: Nawazuddin Siddiqui Reveals His Ex-Wife Is Being Paid Rs 10 Lakh Per Month, Has A Lavish Flat On Her Name
