During the same conversation, Shah also revealed about his plans of making Tumbbad into a franchise. “We really wish to make Tumbbad 2 and 3,” he had said. “It is not being made right now. It is being written. It has been five years since Tumbbad released. We are trying but we haven’t cracked an idea till now. Definitely, we would like to make Tumbbad 2. But we don’t wish to make it just because the first film did well. We should feel that the story is of the level of the first film. It should do justice (to the first film). When you receive so much love from people, it becomes your responsibility.”
