In 2003, filmmaker Priyadarshan tickled our funny bone when he released Hungama. The film which starred Rimi Sen, Akshaye Khanna and Aftab Shivdasani, was one of of the funniest film of the time and even today it manages to make us laugh when we watch it on television. Now, a report in Bollywood Hungama stated that the filmmaker will make his comeback to Bollywood with the sequel to the film. Hungama 2 will star a new cast and will be vibrant, young and funny.
It will be young, vibrant, warm, funny and family-oriented. In brief, a typical Priyadarshan comedy. Paresh Rawal will be back in the film, so will Shakti Kapoor and Rajpal Yadav. Only the lead pair Akshaye Khanna and Rimi Sen will change. We will announce the new romantic lead of Hungama 2 very shortly.
It will be a fresh story. We decided to title the new comedy Hungama 2 because the mood of masti, mischief and Hungama remain unchanged. I know Hungama came 16 years ago. But people have still not forgotten it. Besides, I share a wonderful rapport with the producers Venus Records & Tapes. I’ve made many wonderful films with them including Garam Masala and Hulchul. I like all of my films with Venus except Tezz which I personally think was a misfire.
It is one of our favourites and we are looking forward to this one!
