Hungama 2:  “Shilpa Is  The Happiest Person I’ve Seen”

Hungama 2 is actually a remake  of  my  1994  Malayalam film Minnaram

Hungama 2: The super-prolific Priyadarshan is  making a comeback to direction in Hindi after  7 years.  “It’s been a tough time  for me. I was going through  some very  difficult personal issues. So when I finally decided to come out of my dark phase  I had to do a comedy. These days  everyone needs laughter  more than  ever before.”

Says  Priyan, “This Hungama  has  nothing to do with  the Hungama I made  18 years  sgoHungama 2 is actually a remake  of  my  1994  Malayalam film Minnaram. But that  was a tragedy.I have turned  Minnaram  into a comedy  in Hungama 2. The last  three reels of the original were tearjerkers. I got rid of them. Nobody wants to  cry during these  tough times.”

 Hungama 2  was one of  the happiest  films of Priyan’s career. “There was sunshine  and laughter  all the time.  Paresh RawalRajpal Yadav and Mohan Joshi have worked with me  a  number  of times. So it was like Friends’ Reunion. I had never worked with Shilpa Shetty before.She  was a  delightful  surprise. So beautiful and  always smiling.Today she’s looking much better than  she  did  20 years ago.I’ve never seen  anyone being so happy  all the time.The minute she walked  into the set she  brought laughter and sunshine  with her. She is  the sunshine girl in my film.”

As  for Meezan Jaafrey, “I had worked with his  grandfather  Jagdeep in Muskurahat. I’ve never worked with Meezan’s  father  Javed Jaffrey. But I can tell you this. Meezan has inherited his father’s dancing shoes .And his grandfather’s comic timing.”

Priyan is   hopeful that  he he will bring some  laughter  into  audiences’ lives  with Hungama 2. “This is  my 94th film. I don’t know  if it is some kind of a  world-record. But I do know  that I want to  complete a 100 films. Please pray for me that I am able to achieve my target.”
