New Delhi: Reports were abuzz earlier that the Shilpa Shetty and Paresh Rawal starrer Hungama 2 was to release in February this year. The Priyadarshan directorial had to face the wrath of the second wave of Covid-19 and the release was pushed ahead. But now the word is that the makers of Hungama 2 have decided to go the digital route.
After Bhoot Police, the latest buzz in the tinsel town suggests that Priyadarshan’s upcoming comic caper Hungama 2 is also set to take the digital route as the pandemic continues to raise its ugly head. With cinema halls remaining shut for an indefinite period because of the health crisis, reports state that Hungama 2 will be skipping a theatrical release.
A source talking to Pinkvilla revealed, “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 the paperwork for all the films is done.”
Also, Akshaye Khanna, who was part of the 2003 cult, Hungama, will make a guest appearance in the sequel, “It’s a fun character and will bring the house down with laughter,” said the source.
