After seven years, director Priyadarshan is making a comeback in Bollywood cinema with his latest project ‘Hungama 2’. He also stated that the film will not be a direct sequel to the original 2003 ‘Hungama’ film, but that the film will take on the hilarity contained in the title.
With the alarming rise in Covid-19 cases across India, the cinema industry has been dealt a huge blow, with many productions canceled or postponed. So what does this mean for Priyadarshan’s comeback project, ‘Hungama 2’? Let’s take a look.
Hungama 2: OTT Platform Release
The comedy-drama film project started in early 2020 and was scheduled for release on August 14, 2020. However, the widespread spread of the coronavirus meant that production of ‘Hungama 2’ was halted until the situation seemed to prove it. As such, it’s been a year since the scheduled release date and the situation is worse than before.
With many state governments imposing lockdowns in hopes of controlling the spread of the virus, the production team of ‘Hungama 2’ has finally decided to release ‘Hungama 2’ on the popular Indian OTT platform, Disney+ Hot Star.
Hungama 2: Release Date
For fans who have been waiting for the film’s release since the title announcement, the good news is that the film was shot way back in February 2020 and has since gone through post-production.
But unfortunately, due to the pandemic situation across India, the production team kept the film release on hold until they finally realized that the best solution was to release the film on an OTT platform. Despite the official announcement that ‘Hungama 2’ will be released on Disney+ Hotstar, there is no official release date for the film.
Hungama 2: Cast
One of the reasons for the huge hype behind the release of ‘Hungama 2’ is the return of Priyadarshan directing. But many could argue that most fans are eagerly awaiting their favorite actress, Shilpa Shetty, to make an amazing comeback after not being in the industry for 13 years since Apne.
