Actor Varun Sharma, who impressed many with his comic outings in Fukrey, hopes to create the same magic in Fukrey 2.
“The preparation for Fukrey 2 is going on. Soon we are going to start the shooting. All of us are very excited to create the same kind of magic. Hunny, Choocha, Zafar, Lali and Bholi Punjanban (the characters in part one) will come together once again and we hope to create the same magic on screen,” he said at the screening of Wah Taj.
Set in Delhi, Fukrey narrated the story of four friends who come together to make easy money. Directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, along with Varun Sharma, the film featured Pulkit Samrat, Ali Fazal, Manjot Singh, Richa Chadda and Priya Anand. “We hope that the sequel will able to make people laugh and receive love from the audience,” he added.
Apart from Fukrey 2, Varun will also be seen in Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon starrer Raabta. “The shoot went very well. We shot in Budapest and the location was beautiful. I think it is a really nice story. Dinesh Vijan is a fabulous director. The camaraderie between Kriti and me was continuing from ‘Dilwale’. And it was too much fun working with Sushant Singh Rajput,” said Varun.
Produced by Homi Adajania, Raabta is scheduled for release on February 12.
Ali Fazal also says that the sequel to his hit Fukrey will be several notches higher than the original. The 2013 coming of age comedy was directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and also featured Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma and Richa Chadda. Set in Delhi, Fukrey chronicled the story of four friends who come together to make easy money.
