The original Hungama (2003) starred Akshaye Khanna, Aftab Shivdasani, Rimi Sen, and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles, and is considered as one of the most entertaining comedy films of its time.

Early this year, Priyadarshan told Press Trust of India Hungama 2, is not a direct sequel to the 2003 film but has the same spirit. "The story is completely different. It uses the similar kind of entertainment. I have completed the writing process and will start shooting the film in January," he said.

Meanwhile, Shetty will make a comeback of sorts after 13 years with upcoming film Nikamma. Directed by Sabbir Khan (helmer of Heropanti and Baaghi), the film also stars Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota actor Abhimanyu Dassani and singer-social media sensation Shirley Setia.
