In Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, Sonakshi is playing a truck driver. Talking about the role, she said in an earlier interview, “I do have some practice driving manual cars but this mini truck was no cake walk. It was a very old and heavy vehicle and because it was manual, the steering and gears were extremely tiresome and required a lot of strength to manoeuvre. Since it was a chase sequence, I had to accelerate the speed but with enough skill to guide my course safely on the roads. Having to burn rubber with that massive beast was quite the challenge but when we got it, the feeling was incredible.” The actor shared the poster and trailer on twitter.
Sunil Lulla, Managing Director, Eros International says, “Like its predecessor, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi will hugely entertain audiences with twice the madness and fun.” Aanand couldn’t agree more. He states, “It’s a cheerful extension of Happy Bhag Jayegi and we hope the audience will enjoy this film as much as we did making it.”
The whole team of Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is set to take the audience on a joyful ride again. It releases worldwide on August 24.
