Last week Happy Bhag Jayegi poster came out only to heighten our curiosity. The poster had Diana Penty turned around with a backpack on her shoulders. We were pretty intrigued to see Penty’s look from the front. Now we have a still featuring Diana Penty. Take a look below.
Penty plays the titular character. She was born in a regular family residing in Amritsar. But Harpreet Kaur aka Happy is meant for things that are irregular, and extraordinary. Happy shouldn’t be taken lightly, for she is self-dependant and sharp-tongued. When in crisis, she’d find solutions to her problems, most of which were irrational and driven by emotions, although they seem perfectly logical to her.
The ‘run-com’ is directed by Mudassar Aziz and besides Diana Penty, stars Abhay Deol, Jimmy Sheirgill and Ali Fazal. The film is being produced by Krishika Lulla and Anand L. Rai, known for directing the widely acclaimed film Tanu Weds Manu with Kangana Ranaut in the lead role.
To recall, Penty was a model and made her Bollywood debut Homi Adajania’s commercially successful romantic comedy Cocktail alongside Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone in the year 2012. She gained appreciation for her performance in the film. Speaking of the film, Rubina A Khan said: “Cocktail is a contemporary film that reflects life as it happens all around us…. just as crazy, twisted, beautiful, funny, weird and lonely as anyone’s life can be. It’s about easy choices and hard decisions and how life still goes on, despite it all. It’s a cocktail you definitely wanna try!”
The poster couldn’t help but remind people of the 1999 American romantic comedy Runaway Bride starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere and directed by Garry Marshall. Happy Bhag Jayegi seems interesting enough to draw audiences. It will hit the theatres on August 19, 2016.
