Ever since its announcement, everyone has been excited about Priyadarshan‘s directorial, Hungama 2. The film went on floors in January, and the team successfully wrapped up its Mumbai schedule, moving to Ooty for the comic caper’s month-long second schedule.
As per a source, Meezaan is emerging as the wonder boy of the film’s set, and it is his dedication that has left everyone in awe of him. “Meezaan surprised everyone with his passion and dedication. What amazed everyone was that on being requested to shoot for three songs back-to-back, the actor was undeterred. These songs are romantic dance numbers, which required practice and rehearsals. He has unbelievable energy and is blessed with genes for dancing,” the source tells.
Says Meezaan, “I knew that I was going to groove a song, which is full-on dance number. Later on when we started coming closer to the shooting date, I found out that there’s another dance number and another love song which turned into a dance number as well. We had to perform heavy choreography. We realised, we didn’t have much time before the shoot. I just got one day of rehearsal and right after that we started shooting. I would rehearse only for the song I was shooting for the next day. After the shoot wrapped up, the day after, I would head for the rehearsal of the next song. It was quite hectic and then there were times where I used to literally see the shots on the spot and deliver the take. I’m just glad that I have good genes passed on from my father, which is why I was able to do it. It all worked well and I’m waiting for people to see it now”
Produced by Ratan Jain, Ganesh Jain, Chetan Jain and Armaan Ventures, directed by Priyadarshan & starring Paresh Rawal, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Meezaan Jaffery and Pranitha Subhash, Hungama 2 is slated to release this year.
