Hitting theaters today is Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi starring Sonakshi Sinha. Directed by Mudassar Aziz, this is a sequel to Happy Bhag Jayegi which starred Diana Penty and Jimmy Shergill, who also appear in this mad comedy. The cast of Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi also includes Jassi Gill, Piyush Mishra and Ali Fazal.
In this tale, there are two women named Happy and of course then much comedy ensues with the case of mistaken identities. Madness across the border is the byline for the Happy series and this time, the action moves from Pakistan to China. When Professor Harpreet Kaur lands in Shanghai, the last thing she would have on her mind is getting kidnapped. In comes our happy gang as a crazy comedy of errors unrolls. As Bagga, Guddu, Happy and UsmaanMiyaan navigate through China, caught in the cross hairs is Harpreet also addressed as Happy by her loved ones.
This is Sonakshi’s first full on comedy role and in a recent interview she said she loved being a part of this genre of film. “Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi can be touted as my first out and out comedy film. I have really enjoyed this space. By nature, I like to laugh and make others laugh. So, for me, it comes really easily. I like to be in a situation where I am given lines to make people laugh. It makes my job easier as an actor. I hope from now on I get more such offers.”
In another interview with Gulf News she gave more insight, “There’s a lot of physical comedy and it’s something that I enjoy immensely.” Adding, ”There’s so much space of improvisation here as an actor. I got to try out a lot of fun stuff of approaching a comic scene. That doesn’t mean it required to be comical, but just inherently funny. Acting in Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi was an amazing experience.”
Get ready for non-stop entertainment and madness, as the race for “Happymess” takes off on 24th August.
