After the stupendous success of ‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’ in 2016, the makers of the cross-border comic caper are returning with its sequel, titled ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi. Today, the team announced the release date of the film on Twitter. The movie has been slated for its theatrical release on 24th August.
‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’ was headlined by Diana Penty who played the title role in the film. But when the sequel was announced last year, several media outlets reported that Sonakshi Sinha would replace Penty in part two. However, nothing of that sort happened as the makers decided to cast both the actresses to double the fun in the sequel.
Besides Sonakshi Sinha and Diana Penty, the sequel also stars Jimmy Shergill and Ali Fazal from the first part. Popular Punjabi actor-singer Jassi Gill will be making his Bollywood debut with the movie.
The prequel narrated the story of a happy-go-lucky girl named Happy, who runs away from her wedding and ends up entering Pakistan by mistake. How she gets back to her country formed the crux of the story. It will be interesting to see what new the audience gets to see in the sequel.
Filmmaker Mudassar Aziz, who had also directed the first part, has called the shots for ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi’. Filmmaker Aanand L Rai has produced the film under his banner, Colour Yellow Productions.
