MUMBAI: Director Abhishek Sharma, who made his directorial debut with the political satire Tere Bin Laden, is back with the sequel of the film Walkwater Media’s Tere Bin Laden 2 that promises to be bigger and better than the 2010 sleeper hit.

Buzz has it that the makers have re-created Pakistan’s Abbotabad in Mumbai for the film.

It is the same place where Osama bin Laden was found and killed by American Special Forces on May 2, 2011. The set has been erected by production designer Wasiq Khan in Mumbai’s Film City and reportedly, the production team did extensive research to create the Pakistani suburb in Mumbai, getting specific details about the house and the environment.

Starring Manish Paul, Sikandar Kher and Pradhuman Singh (who will reprise his role as the Osama lookalike), Walkwater Media’s Tere Bin Laden 2, directed by Abhishek Sharma is scheduled to release next year.
