Apart from Amar-Prem aka Aamir-Salman, the sequel will, reportedly, also have a comeback of the iconic character of Crime Master Gogo.

It was reported that actors Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan have been approached to portray the happy-go-lucky characters of Amar and Prem in the sequel.

However, no official announcement has been made so far.
Aamir also vouches for Ranveer, Varun for the sequel
Aamir has also vouched for Ranveer-Varun for the sequel.
"Andaz Apna Apna is a film that people have loved immensely, so I'm sure they would love to see it. As an audience, I'd love to see what Ranveer, Varun or any of the young actors would do with the characters," Aamir said.
Ranveer-Varun have great comic timing, so they might be an apt choice.

Naturally, Ranveer is keen to be a part of the sequel. In fact, he also expressed his desire to be a part of the cult-classic while interacting with a fan on Twitter.
However, he further mentioned it would be quite difficult to live up to the expectations of the cult movie because "you've got a big responsibility as it's one of those timeless comedies".
