Sonakshi Sinha Plays A Girl Next Door In Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi
In 2016, a movie called Happy Bhag Jayegi proved to be a sleeper hit. And with all things Bollywood, they decided to not let a good thing be. This movie worked because of its irreverent charm, the unexpected story line, and some solid performances from the leads, including Abhay Deol and Diana Penty. So, 2018 will see a sequel to the movie, called Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi. The extra r in phirr is probably because of numerology. The extra leads in the movie are unexplained.
In the sequel, the role of Happy (the person, not emotion) is taken over by Sonakshi Sinha who, going purely by the trailer, plays a bubbly character. Jimmy Shergill, best known for being a brilliant actor but also as the jilted lover, plays a bigger role but it definitely looks like there is a hangover from Tanu Weds Manu.
Diana Penty makes an unexplained appearance, despite being the lead in the original movie. What we are saying is, we aren’t exactly swooning over the trailer but it looks like a fun watch anyway. And since Aanand L Rai is at the helm, we expect generous doses of fun.
For now, we are going to not make any assumptions, we are just going to run with it.
