Brother replaces brother! Aparshakti Khurrana in, Ayushmann Khurrana out of Happy Bhaag Jayegi sequel!
Actor Aparshakti Khurrana has replaced elder brother Ayushmann Khurrana in the ‘Happy Bhaag Jayegi’ sequel.
We all know what a pack of talent Ayushmann Khurrana is; he’s just not the jack of all trades but the master of all as well. However, the talented actor has been replaced by another actor for the sequel of ‘Happy Bhaag Jayegi’. And the other actor is none other than his younger brother, Aparshakti Khurrana. Ayushmann was initially offered to play the lead role in the sequel. However, due to date issues, the ‘Vicky Donor’ actor said no to the offer and the makers roped Aparshakti in.
A source said, "Aparshakti is doing the ‘Happy Bhaag Jayegi’ sequel now. He is doing the bhajan based reality show, ‘Om Shanti Om’, as well, so he has worked his dates out in a way that he can shoot ‘Happy Bhaag Jayegi Returns’ without causing any delay." The source further stated, "It wasn’t an instant call. But everyone was keen on Ayushmann. And Aparshakti also brings the same energy to the character. So they offered him the role. Ayushmann didn’t refer his brother at all. It was a call that the producers took themselves. Aparshakti will soon begin shooting his portions for the comedy film."
Aparshakti, who was seen in 2016’s mega-blockbuster ‘Dangal’, has proved that he can definitely tickle one’s funny bones. The movie also stars Sonakshi Sinha and Diana Penty in lead roles. The movie has already gone on floors last month.
