On Monday evening, right after the release of the Baadshaho trailer, #FukreyReturns started trending on the social media. Though we knew that at some point of time, the makers will announce the sequel to their 2013 hit film Fukrey, but we didn’t know that they will do it so suddenly. There was no buzz in the media about the sequel.
The makers, Excel Entertainment, tweeted a photo that has four actors on the film’s poster, but their faces are not visible as they are hidden behind emoticons. However, we know that the film will have the same set of four lead actors that we saw in the original: Pulkit Samrat, Ali Fazal, Manjot Singh and Varun Sharma. Samrat also tweeted the first look.
Priya Anand spoke about her role in th emovie saying, “Wherever I go, people still talk about Fukrey and ask me about the sequel. It’s going to be a fun film and I’m thrilled about it. There will be this crazy wedding song, on the lines of the popular Ambarsariya from the first part.”
Farhan Akhtar shared the poster saying, “Jugaad karke vaapas aa hi gaye. #FukreyReturns.” Co-produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sindhwani under the banner of Excel Entertainment, the comedy drama has majorly been shot in Mumbai, New Delhi and South Africa.
But there would be one actor that everybody will miss in the sequel and that’s Richa Chadda who played Bholi Punjaban in Fukrey. Directed Mrigdeep Singh Lamba’s film revolved around four good-for-nothing youngsters who find themselves in the grip of a local gangster. Fukrey returns is scheduled to hit the screens on December 8, 2017.
