The ultra-prolific Priyadarshan is working fast and furiously on his sequel to Hungama, the hit 2003 comedy which starred Akshay Khanna and Aftab Shivdasani in the male lead.
Hungama 2 has found its leading man. It is none other than Meezaan Jaffrey. The talented newcomer made his impressive debut in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-produced Malaal in July this year. But the film underperformed at the boxoffice, leaving Meezaan’s future in uncertainty.
Now that Priyadarshan has stepped in we can safely assume that Jaaved Jaffrey’s son is making confident headway.
Confirming Meezaan’s presence as the lead in Priyardarshan says, “Yes, we’ve found our male lead in Hungama 2 and it’s Meezaan. The boy is terrific on screen. He is a fabulous dancer like his father , emotes and fights well too. There is nothing he can’t do.”
The female lead in Hungama 2 is yet to be decided.
