Moreover, the director says that she won’t direct an India-centric film for sure. She says:

“She has been producing films, and I hope it is international (the one that we do together). I can’t think of doing India-centric film alone as I am half British and Indian.”

Reports state that Gurinder plans to make a sequel to ‘Bend It Like Beckham’. Though, the film will not have a sports background whatsoever. Instead, the movie is going to relate its runtime to the music genre. Her actual words were:

“There is a project that I am working on with England’s support. It is about a boy and girl. It has the same feel as ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ but it is different. It does not have a background of football or sports. It is more about music. I will have the British-Asian perspective in the same way as ‘Bend It Like Beckham’.” 

As of now, Gurinder Chadha is gearing up for his upcoming directorial release titled ‘Partition: 1947’. The movie is going to hit theatres on August 18, 2017. It features Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, Manish Dayal, Huma Qureshi and Michael Gambon in the lead roles.
