Himesh says, “I am truly excited for the sequel and happy for my dad Vipin Reshammiya that I have given him a hit franchise as he is the official producer of the film. Ravi Kumaar’s character has been appreciated universally by critics as well as the audiences, The quirkiness in his dialogues are a highlight, the sequel will be a landmark with regards to a very big musical thriller, grand visuals, thrills and dialogues in the correct budget and explore the stunning truth of the 70s Bollywood.”
