After a promsising debut in Cocktail (2012), Diana Penty disappeared from the movie circuit until the release of Happy Bhag Jayegi in 2016. Co-starring Ali Fazal, Abhay Deol and Jimmy Shergill, the film was centered around Happy’s (Diana Penty) adventures.
After over a year since the film’s release, the film is all set to have a sequel. This time though, the project stars Sonakshi Sinha along with Diana Penty. Produced by Anand L. Rai, the sequel will also be directed by Mudassar Aziz, who directed the first film.
Titled Happy Bhaag Jayegi Returns, the film will also star Punjabi singer and actor, Jassi Gill. Punjabi stars Diljit Dosanjh and Gippy Grewal have already made a mark in Hindi films and it looks like the doors for more actors from the region have been opened.
Jassi had shared this news on Twitter with the caption, “Bollywood Here I Come 😍
Thnks @aanandlrai sir @mudassar_as_is sir nd whole @colouryellowltd team nd sbto vadda thnks baba da tuc great o”. Producer Anand L. Rai had responded to his tweet with, “Welcome bro 🤗🙏🤗”
The first film starred three male actors so it is yet to be seen if there will be more actors coming on board for this one.
Diana Penty was last seen in Farhan Akhtar-starrer Lucknow Central and Sinha was last seen in Noor earlier this year. Sonakshi is currently doing the reality show, Om Shanti Om, along with Baba Ramdev, Shekhar Ravijani & Kanika Kapoor.
The film goes on floors today and if the response of the last film is anything to go by, this one will be welcomed by the viewers as well.
Here are some images of the team of Happy Bhag Jayegi Returns.
Looking forward to this!
