However, in May this year, the film's makers had said that Hungama 2 will skip theaters and release directly on an OTT platform as cinema houses remain shut due to the deadly second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
The trailer of Hungama 2 will be unveiled on Thursday. Veteran actor Paresh Rawal is returning for the sequel and he is joined by Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Meezaan Jafri, and Pranitha Subhash in the cast. Hungama 2 will also feature Ashutosh Rana, Manoj Joshi, Rajpal Yadav, Johnny Lever, and Tiku Talsania in pivotal roles. The shooting of the film wrapped up this year.
The original film starred Rawal along with Shoma Anand, Akshaye Khanna, Aftab Shivdasani, and Rimi Sen. A Venus Records and Tapes LLP project, Hungama 2 has also been produced by Ganesh Jain, Chetan Jain, and Armaan Ventures. Notably, the film will mark Priyadarshan's return to Bollywood after a hiatus of eight years. Shilpa also makes a comeback after a break of over 13 years.
