In addition to Nikamma, Shilpa Shetty Kundra has been reported to be playing an essential role in Priyadarshan’s Hungama 2.
Talking about Shilpa, a source tells a tabloid:
“Even though it is being touted as a sequel to Hungama, this film is not a continuation of the 2003 hit and has a different storyline.
Shilpa will play a glamorous, career-oriented woman who finds herself at the centre of a hilarious misunderstanding.
Her knack for comedy has remained largely untapped in the films she did earlier. So when this role came her way, she jumped at the idea.”
The film stars Meezaan Jaaferi and South actor Pranitha Subhash in the lead roles and also has Paresh Rawal who is prominent in Priyadarshan films.
Breaking news on this sequel, filmmaker Priyadarshan said: “Hungama 2 will go on floors on January 6, 2020.”
He also mentioned:
“For this role, I wanted an actor who has ruled the film industry as the character is integral [to the narrative] Shilpa plays a glamorous and the most hilarious character in the movie.
She is paired opposite Paresh Rawal. We have titled the film Hungama 2 because it has funny situations arising from confusion and misunderstandings, and thus, has the spirit of Hungama.”
The film is set to go on floors in January next year.
