2013’s surprise hit Fukrey, will soon be back with a sequel which takes the story of Hunny, Choocha, Zafar, Lali and Bholi Punjaban forward.

According to the official announcement the original cast, including Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Ali Fazal, Manjot Singh and Richa Chadha will be retained. But the story will move forward from the campus. Shooting begins in August in Delhi.

Producer Ritesh Sidhwani confirmed the news, saying, “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 become really popular, we have decided to retain the original cast, along with director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba.”

“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,” he points out.
