Chhakka Panja 2 gearing for Dashain release
Sep 17, 2017-
After the unprecedented commercial success of Chhakka Panja—last year’s runaway blockbuster—it didn’t take long for the production team to announce yet another venture, Chhakka Panja 2.It took only about a year for the team to produce Chhakka Panja 2, the trailer of which hit the Youtube last week. The film is slated to hit the theatres this Dashain, starting on the day of Fulpaati.
The producers, however, have been quick to reiterate that although the film borrows its name from Chhakka Panja, is not a sequel, even though much of the original cast will
be reappearing, with Swastima Khadka and Gaurav Pahari as notable additions.
The cast and crew of Chhakka Panja 2 is currently on a nationwide promotional tour. The team started the journey from Damak, in Jhapa, this weekend.
The film is actors Deepak Raj Giri and Deepashree Niraula’s fourth venture together, after Wada Number Chha, Chha Ekaan Chha and Chhakka Panja.
Speaking at the event, Deepashree Niraula, the film’s director, said, “I am confident that our fourth venture will be a success.”
Niraula added, “I believe we have been able to repeat the same folksy flavour with this film. The film
deals with serious issues, but
we have approached it with
lightheartedness, as we did with Chhakka Panja.”
Deepak Raj Giri, the film’s
lead actor and one of the producers, said, “Chhakka Panja 2 is based
on an entirely different time and setting than Chhakka Panja—even though we decided to borrow the name from our last venture for obvious reasons.”
Along with Deepak Raj Giri, Khadka and Pahari, Chhakka Panja 2 features actors Priyanka Karki, Jitu Nepal, Kedar Ghimire, and Buddhi Tamang, among others.
Chhakka Panja will hit theatres on September 22.
