The makers of last year’s super hit Happy Bhag Jayegi have just announced a sequel to the film and we already can’t wait. The film that originally starred Diana Penty, Abhay Deol, Jimmy Shergill, and Ali Fazal in the lead roles will now see a new addition to the ranks in Sonakshi Sinha. And the sequel’s title will be Happy Bhag Jayegi Returns. When Sonakshi was in talks for the film, her management team had said, “Discussions are in progress. When something concrete happens, it will be announced. Must say Happy 1 was hilarious.”

However the film is now certainly underway, and it will have two lead roles in Sonakshi Sinha and Diana Penty. Other actors are yet to be announced. Speaking to a leading daily, an elated Sonakshi said, “I’m thrilled to be on board of this really positive, vibrant and most importantly happy film unit. I loved the first part and I hope this one is bigger and better in every way. Can’t wait to start shooting!” She even shared some pictures on Twitter and captioned it: “Its one big HAPPY family!!! Cant wait to kickstart this journey ⭐️ @aanandlrai @mudassar_as_is @DianaPenty #happybhaagjayegireturns”

“‘HBJ was a special film for me, so being part of HBJ Returns is like going back to family! HBJ was a fun, roller- coaster of a ride and I’m sure this one is going to be as much of a riot! I’m looking forward to the shoot,” Diana said. “Happy Bhag Jayegi’ was a cross-border comedy of errors featuring humorous characters and now we are happy to announce the sequel that has Diana passing on the happy-ness quotient to Sonakshi. Excited to have her on board,” said Aanand L Rai, the producer of the previous film.
