Fukrey’ sequel to roll in August with original cast

New Delhi, Jan 30 (IANS) The sequel to Bollywood film “Fukrey” will go on the floors here in August with the original cast including Pulkit Samrat, Ali Fazal and Richa Chadha.

Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment, 2013 film “Fukrey” narrated the story of how four friends meet an array of colourful characters — be it a tough Punjabi gangster or a watchman famous for his hacks — as they chase their dreams. Sidhwani made the announcement of the sequel via a statement.

“When we were promoting ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’, we were constantly being asked why we aren’t spinning sequels since several of our films could lend themselves to franchises. Since the characters of ‘Fukrey’ became really popular, we have decided to retain the original cast, along with director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba,” Sidhwani said.

Characters like Hunny, Choocha, Zafar, Lali and Bholi Punjaban from the coming-of-age comedy film made a special place for themselves in the hearts of the audience.

The thought of the sequel was a spontaneous one as Sidhwani and writer Lamba were discussing another script. It got Sidhwani excited.

Sidhwani added: “The story will take the characters’ lives forward but everything else will remain the same. We don’t want to change the north Indian setting.”

Meanwhile, Sidhwani is currently geared up for his films “Rock On 2”, “Baar Baar Dekho” and Shah Rukh Khan-starer “Raees”.
