Shilpa Shetty will be seen on the big screen after a long gap in Sabbir Khan’s Nikamma. But well, looks like the actress is in no mood to just star in one film and now, has signed one more movie.
Shilpa will be seen in a pivotal role in Hungama 2. A source told Mid-day, “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.”
Priyadarshan says that he needed an actor who ruled Bollywood. He said, “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.”
Hungama 2 also stars Paresh Rawal, Meezaan Jafferi and Pranitha Subhash. The shooting of the film will kickstart in January 2020.
