The team is expected to release the film’s trailer and begin promotional activities soon.
Apart from the original cast members — Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby Deol, and Kriti Kharbanda — Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se, the third instalment in the YPD franchise, also features Shatrughan Sinha and his daughter Sonakshi Sinha.
The Deols, who are rather gung-ho about the film, have a massive promotional campaign planned.
“Dharam ji will draw a large number of people, and so will Shatrughan Sinha. For both of them to be seen promoting the film along with their kids will be a huge deal for the media. In fact, Dharam ji has been asking when the promotions will kick-off because he’s more than excited,” says a source close to the film.
YPD: Phir Se was slated for release on August 15, but the makers have moved it to avoid clashing with Satyamev Jayate and Gold. Sunny earlier put out a statement saying, “August 15 has two patriotic films — Gold and Satyamev Jayate, which are topical for the day, and on August 24, our family friend Anil Sharma’s son, who has our blessings, is being launched. Our film is a wholesome family entertainer, and so we’ve decided to release it two weeks later, on August 31, 2018.”
The film’s teaser has been received well, and the team is expected to launch their promotional activities soon with a trailer-release. Meanwhile, Bobby continues to bask in the success of his first `150 crore film, Race 3.
