Filmmaker Mudassar Aziz who made ‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’ featuring actors Abhay Deol and Diana Penty has decided to make the sequel of the film. The director revealed that the overwhelming response received by the film has motivated him to make its second part.
‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’ was a cross-border comedy that also starred Ali Fazal and Jimmy Shergill in prominent roles.
"I wasn't thinking of a sequel while making the first film, it was the encouraging feedback from the audience that set the ball rolling," Mudassar said in a statement. Eros International and Aanand L Rai's Colour Yellow Productions' "Happy Bhag Jayegi" released in August last year.
"I was working on another story when the idea of a sequel to "Happy.." struck me in September. I discussed it with Rai saab who suggested I work on it and see what comes out. By October-end, I had a story which he really liked," he said.
According to Mudassar, the essence of the film will remain the same but the makers are yet to zero down on the place Happy (Diana) will elope to this time.
"Besides her runway act, we also refer to the word 'happy' as a state of the mind which is not everlasting," he added
