2016's sleeper hit Happy Bhaag Jayegi is now getting a sequel. The film will star Sonakshi Sinha and Diana Penty in the lead roles. Titled Happy Bhaag Jayegi Returns, the film will also star Punjabi singer and actor, Jassi Gill.
Elated Sonakshi said in the statement, "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!"
"'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," Rai said.
