The film was decided to get release on the year 2009 but due to several problems and some major script troubles it could not happen and the release stopped and that’s the reason why Kumar has postponed the film’s release date and informed that by early 2011, the film should get released.

So just imagine if the prequel WANTED was a huge success and hit then what the sequel MOST WANTED (also known as Wanted 2) will be like. Producer Boney Kapoor has said that the sequel of Wanted, Wanted 2 (also known as Most Wanted) will be made with Salman and Asin in lead roles and the movie will be release sometime in the year 2011.

Although the shooting started back in the year 2009 and the film was supposed to be released in the year 2010 but the shooting dates accidentally got cancelled and got changed till in 2011. Sanjay Dutt was also confirmed to be a part of the sequel and we expect some real good comedy acting from him too. And when all the three talented comedy actors gets in one platform then it just fun, fun and more fun that we will be entertained with.
