Ratna Pathak aka Maya Sarabhai from Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai recently, in an interview with Pinkvilla, opened up about the possibility of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai 3. The actor said that sometimes it is best to leave some thing where it is and shared that she did not feel Sarabhai 2 was quite the same as Sarabhai 1. She also talked about the star system in the Hindi film industry. She said that the filmmakers of the current generation, unlike the filmmakers of her generation, 'are able to see beyond stars'.
Ratna said that during the old days, filmmakers saw stars 'even in the alternate film world, i.e. the art film world'. She added they also created their own star system and she recalled the number of films made without Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil. She also recalled several other veteran actors such as Deepti Naval, Pankaj Kapur, and Paresh Rawal. She called Paresh 'a brilliant actor' and stated that the actor had to go to Hindi commercial cinema before he got roles in movies.
The veteran actor questioned in the Hindi language, "Hum log sab nahin the kya? (Weren't we there?) Kisi ki aankh nahin khuli thi kya? (Didn’t anyone see us?). So theek hai, woh zamana aisa tha, bechare star ke bhaki woh bhi the, yeh bhi the (It’s fine. That time was like that, both would preach the stars). Abhi, fortunately, kahaani ki bhakti ho rahi hai (Now, fortunately, the story is given the foremost importance)".
