We have to agree that Happy Bhagg Jayegi starring Diana Penty and Abhay Deol in the lead roles succeeded in tickling our funny bones, when it released in 2016. And, now following the success, the sequel to the movie, i.e., Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi has been announced, which is slated to release on August 24.
Actress Diana Penty, who played a runaway bride in the first part of the film, has returned for the sequel. She is joined by actress Sonakshi Sinha, whose character also runs away from her wedding, in "Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi".
"Turns out I'm not the only ‘Happy' around, there's one more on the run! Lace up Sonakshi Sinha. Let's get this started 'Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi'. August 24," Diana tweeted on Tuesday.
Mudassar Aziz, who helmed the first part, is back on the director's chair for the sequel.
The film will be singer Jassie Gill's first Bollywood project. "Feeling thrilled and proud to share this news with you guys, my first Bollywood movie 'Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi' is releasing on August 24," he tweeted.
The film will also feature Abhay Deol, Ali Fazal and Jimmy Shergill.
