Hungama 2 heads to Disney+ Hotstar
The film has been directed by Priyadarshan
We had earlier reported that the upcoming Hindi comedy film, Hungama 2 will be skipping theatres to premiere on a streaming platform instead. The makers of the film have announced on Wednesday that the Priyadarshan directorial will be streaming on Disney+ Hotstar from July 23.
Starring Meezaan, Pranitha Subhash, Paresh Rawal, and Shilpa Shetty Kundra in the lead roles, the film is a spiritual successor to Priyadarshan's 2003 film Hungama. The original starred Akshaye Khanna, Aftab Shivdasani, Paresh Rawal, and Rimi Sen.
The film, which wrapped up production earlier this year, initially eyed a theatrical release, but the makers opted for a streaming release ascribed to the pandemic. The film also features Ashutosh Rana, Manoj Joshi, Rajpal Yadav, and Johnny Lever in pivotal roles. Bankrolled by Venus Records and Tapes LLP, Hungama 2 marks Priyadarshan's return to Hindi cinema after the 2013 film Rangrezz.
