Singh confirmed the news telling Mirror that he has a new plot point in mind and that he is ready to take the story forward from where Soorma left off. He added that he was currently talking to various production houses with his ideas.

The sportsperson informed that he had been receiving mails from fans and well wishers who requested him to come out with a sequel after they watched Soorma. Work on the project has started but Singh said that he was not sure whether the original cast of Soorma will reprise their roles in the sequel. "It will also feature flashbacks from my story that were shown in part one,” Singh revealed. Sandeep has apparently been working on the second script in collaboration with his brother Bikramjeet Singh and a few other cousins who had played crucial roles in collating the narrative of Soorma as well.

The original film was helmed by Shaad Ali and was primarily shot in Sandeep's hometown in Haryana. When asked whether Diljit will be seen in the sequel, Sandeep said that since it was too early into the project and hence he was unsure about the final cast. "But we will know soon,” added Singh.
