Mudassar Aziz's 2016 directorial venture Happy Bhag Jayegi was a sleeper hit. Now that the film is all set to return with a sequel, the makers started scouting for the male lead. And their search ended with Punjabi singer-actor Jassie Gill.
Yes, Jassie will be making his Bollywood debut with the sequel, which will star Sonakshi Sinha and Diana Penty opposite him. Producer Aanand L Rai shared a post on social media relating the news of the two ladies coming together on-screen. He captioned the pic: "There r so many beautiful reasons to be Happy.🤗& ur big smiles is our reason😊@DianaPenty @sonakshisinha 🤗Love always #HappyBhagJayegiReturns (sic)."
Coming back to Jassie, he too took to Instagram to share the news of him making his Bollywood debut.
Jassie Gill has now joined the list of Punjabi actors such as Diljit Dosanjh and Gippy Grewal, who have been working in Bollywood for a long time.
Happy Bhag Jayegi Returns is all set to go on floors soon, and will release early next year.
