The Priyadarshan upcoming comedy film, Hungama 2 stars Paresh Rawal, Shilpa Shetty, Meezaan and Pranita Subhash and has a special appearance by Akshaye Khanna. The film is a sequel to 2003 superhit film, Hungama, which featured Akshaye Khanna, Aftab Shivdasani, Paresh Rawal and Rimi Sen in the lead.
Hungama 2, which was slated to release in theatres this summer, also has decided to take a direct to digital route now, since the country is hit by the second wave of Covid -19 pandemic, resulting in cinema halls getting shut again.
It was recently reported that Bhoot Police, starring featuring Saif Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez and Yami Gautam will premiere directly on Hotstar. And now, another big film is taking the same route.
We have learnt that this Priyadarashan comedy, Hungama 2, will also premiere directly on Disney+Hotstar.
“The shoot has been wrapped up and the makers have got a lucrative deal from the streaming platform. Things are locked verbally and the producers, Ratan Jain, Chetan Jain and Ganesh Jain, are on the verge of closing the financials,” revealed a source to Pinkvilla.
“It’s going to be a slate of new Hindi films that the platform will announce. Last year, it was Laxmii, Bhuj, Khuda Hafiz, Sadak 2 and Big Bull. For 2021, they have Bhoot Police and Hungama 2 in their kitty, and are in talks with three more films. An announcement will follow once paper work for all the films is done,” the source added.
