Filmmaker Priyadarshan on Monday said he has finished shooting his upcoming comedy Hungama 2, starring Paresh Rawal, Shilpa Shetty, Meezaan, Pranitha Subhash, Ashutosh Rana, Manoj Joshi, Rajpal Yadav, Johnny Lever and Tiku Talsania.
Hungama 2 is a sequel to Priyadarshan’s hit comedy film Hungama, which also starred Rawal along with Shoma Anand, Akshaye Khanna, Aftab Shivdasani, and Rimi Sen.
The director said it was challenging to make a “more entertaining” second part after the success of the original, which released back in 2003.
“Even after so many years, Hungama is still fresh in audiences’ mind and it was a challenge to ensure Hungama 2 was even more entertaining than the first installment. But the cast and the entire crew more than lived up to the expectations and I am eagerly waiting to share the film with the audience,” Priyadarshan said in a statement.
The team wrapped the shoot of the film on Sunday and celebrated the director’s birthday. Priyadarshan turned 64 on Saturday.
Producer Ratan Jain said the team’s vision with Hungama 2 was to make a “wholesome” comedy and he is elated that they have achieved it.
“We are quite happy with how the film has shaped up. Our director, Priyadarshan is one of the stalwarts of the genre and we are now eagerly waiting to take our audience on a ride full of entertainment and laughter with Hungama 2,” Jain said.
A Venus Records and Tapes LLP project, Hungama 2 is backed by Ratan Jain, Ganesh Jain, Chetan Jain, and Armaan Ventures.
