Anshuman Jha starrer Lakadbaggha to get a sequel; Shooting to start this year!
Anshuman Jha starrer Lakadbaggha was released on Friday and though it couldn’t be well at the box office, the makers are planning to make a sequel to the movie. Anshuman shared this news after winning the Best Actor Award for the movie at the South Asian International Film Festival in New York. The actor also said that the project will kickstart this year in September. “This now inspires me to train doubly hard for Lakadbaggha Chapter 2. Yes, we will start filming the sequel in September 2023,” said the actor.
“Very grateful to HBO & the entire team of the South Asian International Film Festival, New York, for considering Lakadbaggha (Hyena) worthy of an opening film & recognising my character Arjun Bakshi worthy of the Best Actor Award. I dedicate this award to Irfan (Khan) sir since it was announced after his birthday. Congratulations to Sayani (Gupta) for winning the best female actor (for Homecoming) too. And apologies for this late reaction as I missed their official mail because I have been so busy promoting Lakadbaggha. Glad they reached out on call,” the actor said while winning the award.
Coming back to the movie, Lakadbaggha is directed by Victor Mukherjee and it featured Ridhi Dogra, Milind Soman, and Paresh Pahuja in key roles aside from Anshuman. The movie is about an animal vigilante and it received bad reviews which led it to have a bad run at the box office.
