Jawani Phir Nahi Ani is one of the most popular comedy film of Pakistan till date. The movie is the second most grossing movie after Waar in Pakistan. After the success of first movie, we all were very excited when we got to know that JPNA would be coming up with a sequel with the same stellar cast.
But, there is a bad news now. One of the leading actors of the original film has decided to ditch on the new movie. The original cast included Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humayun Saeed, Ayesha Khan, Sohai Ali Abro, Mehwish Hayat, Sarwat Gillani, Uzma Khan, Vasay Chaudhry and Ahmed Ali Butt amongst others. However, Mr Abbasi wouldn’t be a part of this movie anymore.
In a recent interview, the dapper actor Hamza Ali Abbasi revealed the reason of why not being part of the upcoming sequel. The rumours had already been existing of his ditching on the movie since a very long time, but Abbasi put a rest on them.
On being asked about the speculations that it was his fight with Humayun Saeed that led to thus decision, he said:
“It was a mutual decision, we’re all friends and there are no issues between myself and Humayun!”
The reason of discontinuing the movie was:
“I don’ t agree with the genre of it and won’t be doing it.”
But, there is a slightest bit of good news for the crazy Hamza fans out there. He would be appearing in a scene in the movie, in which he will introduce Fahad Mustafa who will replace him.
Other than this, the first part of the movie was shot in the scenic Thailand while this sequel will be based in South Africa.
Though we will miss Hamza a lot, but he acts or not, we are definitely rooting for JNPA 2 to hit our cinema screens soon.
