No scope for 'Phas Gaye... 2', says writer-director

New Delhi, Feb 11 (IANS) Subhash Kapoor, writer-director of 2010 satire "Phas Gaye Re Obama", is not sure if he will be associated with the sequel of the movie.

Producer Ashok Pandey had reportedly announced a 'part two' of the comedy film last year, but Kapoor said: "I don't think there's any scope for part two."

"I don't think if one movie works, a second part should be made. I don't subscribe to that," he told IANS.

For now, the journalist-turned-filmmaker is busy spreading a buzz about his forthcoming movie "Jolly L.L.B", a satire on the Indian law system.

Starring Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani, the movie releases March 15.

Go vegan, urges Jacqueline

Actress Jacqueline Fernandes, who recently went vegan, now urges her family members, friends and fans to follow in her footsteps and go vegan for the 40 days of Lent, the fasting period before Easter.

"I went vegan, and I've never felt better. Now, I want to share that wonderful feeling with everybody I know," Jacqueline said in a statement.

"Going vegan is the best thing you can do to help stop animal suffering, protect the environment and safeguard your own health, and Lent is the perfect time to start," said the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) supporter.

The former Miss Sri Lanka had earlier shot a PETA ad asking Mumbai residents to help put cruel horse-drawn carriages out to pasture.
