Filmmaker Dinesh Vijan has said that the plot of Go Goa Gone 2 will centre on aliens unlike its prequel which was a comedy based on zombies. Eros International and Maddock Films recently announced the sequel to the 2013 film that had an ensemble star cast of Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwari and Puja Gupta. Dinesh told a news agency that the team of Roohi Afzana is writing the sequel. He said that one of the writers came up with the idea about aliens and since both he and Eros loved it they announced the film.
He told the news agency, “The team of Roohi Afzana is writing the sequel. The writer came up with the idea and I loved it and then we developed it. Eros said let’s announce it and we did. We just need to give every actor, who was there in the first part, a little more like a 2.0 version and bring something new. Zombie element won’t be there, we are doing it with aliens. The world will be similar like same emotion, same comic timing, like stoner comedy, but a new journey.”

Although Dinesh has not approached the original star cast for the sequel he is hoping that all of them will give their affirmation. He said, “We haven’t approached the actors yet. The intent is to get everybody. They should be happy and like the role. There will be two new additions to the cast - one male and female. It will start by the end of the year.” Go Goa Gone 2 is scheduled to release in March 2021.
Go Goa Gone followed three men whose holiday to Goa turns out to be a zombie nightmare. Saif played the role of Boris, a Russian mobster-turned-zombie hunter, in the Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK-directed film.
