Apne 2 is going to be an extension of the family bonding that was seen in the first film. Bobby talked about the chemistry between the three actors in the family and said, “I believe papa, bhaiyya, and I have innate chemistry, which clicks with the audience. The Deols are known to be a close-knit family, and [our values] are reflected in the family dramas we make. The familial relationships were the USP of Apne.”
Apne released in 2007 was around the importance of family bonds. It was a sports drama that also featured Shilpa Shetty and Katrina Kaif.
