The original film was about a runaway bride who elopes with her boyfriend on her wedding night and ends up in more trouble leading to some hilarious circumstances. The real 'Happy', Diana Penty is enthusiastic about the sequel. 

While talking about it, she said, "Happy Bhag Jaegi was a special film for me, so being part of Happy Bhag Jaegi Returns is like going back to family! The film was a fun, roller- coaster of a ride and I'm sure this one is going to be as much of a riot! I'm looking forward to the shoot."

Punjabi singer, Jassie Gill will also make his Bollywood debut with the film. After his confirmation, he thanked the team for considering him by posting a picture on Twitter.

He said, "The film was a cross-border comedy of errors featuring humorous characters and now we are happy to announce the sequel that has Diana passing on the happy-ness quotient to Sonakshi. Excited to have her on board."

Sonakshi was last seen in Sunhil Sippy's Noor, which failed to create the expected buzz on box-office. Her next 'Ittefaq' with Sidharth Malhotra is soon to be released.
