Aanand L. Rai’s production venture, Happy Bhag Jayegi, turned out to be a sleeper hit of the year 2016. We won’t be surprised if you have not watched the movie yet. But we will strongly recommend it and be very disappointed if you don’t watch it before the sequel comes out. First, yes, the movie was really good. Second, yes, a sequel is coming out. The announcement video of the trailer for the upcoming sequel was released today and it totally goes with the tone of the film’s humor that we loved so much. In the video, Diana Penty – the original Happy – returns.
Titled, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, the sequel is due to come out on August 24. The trailer will be released by the makers on July 25. In the funny trailer announcement video, a milkman approaches Happy (Diana) and tells her that rumors are rife that ‘Happy will elope again.’ Happy wonders as to who this new Happy is! This sets the premise for the new movie in which Sonakshi Sinha joins the cast as the second character named ‘Happy.’
Along with Sonakshi Sinha, Jassie Gill will also be new joinee in the film. Amongst the alumni, Diana, Ali Fazal, Jimmy Sheirgill, Piyush Mishra will be returning for Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi. Mudassar Aziz also returns as the director of the film. And so have the co-producers, Krishika Lulla and Aanand L Rai.
While in the first film, the titular character accidentally lands up in Pakistan, when trying to elope, the second movie is set in Bangkok. We can’t wait for the trailer to come out in two days. We also hope that this sequel gets much more attention when it releases. Rooting for you, Happy!
