Rajpal Yadav, who is popular for his comedy characters, spoke about the idea of him being romantically paired with Shilpa Shetty in the upcoming film ‘Hungama 2’. Paresh Rawal has been cast opposite to Shilpa Shetty in the movie and it stars Rajpal, Pranitha Subhash and Meezaan amongst other actors.
Rajpal Yadav, in an interview, was asked about being cast opposite Shilpa Shetty in Hungama 2 and he said that director Priyadarshan has made the right choice in casting the actors.
Talking to radio host Siddharth Kannan, Rajpal told, “Phir Hungama 2 nahi banta, hungama khada ho jaata. Main bohot dhanyavaad deta hoon ki jahaan pe Shilpa ji ko Priyan ji ne rakha hai na, woh kateyi sarvasresht sthaan hai. Agar Rajpal ko rakh dete toh Rajpal jo hungama karne aate, woh hungama nahi kar paate (Then Hungama 2 would not be made, it would cause an uproar. I am very thankful about whom Priyadarshan cast alongside Shilpa, it is the best thing to do. If I was cast, I would not be able to do justice)”.
In the original Hungama, Rajpal portrayed a supporting role which features actors including Aftab Shivdasani, Rimi Sen, Akshaye Khanna and Paresh Rawal in the key roles.
Earlier, director Priyadarshan said about Hungama 2 in an interview with Eastern Eye that “It will be a fresh story. We decided to title the new comedy Hungama 2 because the mood of masti, mischief and hungama remain unchanged”.
Shilpa Shetty’s acting comeback marks with Hungama 2. The movie will release on July 23 on Disney+Hotstar.
