It is not easy for sequels of big blockbusters to receive the similar response as the original did. However, in the case of Manje Bistre 2 – the sequel of 2017’s highest opener – Manje Bistre, the box-office response is praiseworthy!
While the film grossed INR 1.5 crore on the first day in East Punjab itself, the second day it recorded INR 2 Crore in East Punjab. The film’s weekend business was commendable too and this Gippy Grewal starrer is being especially praised for combining culture and comedy through the theme of an NRI wedding. While the first Manje Bistre was based in Punjab, the sequel was based in Canada depicting the lives of Punjabis abroad and how their living away doesn’t affect their love for Punjabi culture and traditions.
Directed by Baljit Singh Deo, Manje Bistre 2 was written and produced by Gippy Grewal. The film had Simi Chahal as its female lead while the supporting cast included talented actors from the industry like Karamjit Anmol, Gurpreet Ghuggi, B.N. Sharma, Rana Jung Bahadur, Rana Ranbir, Anita Devgan and many more.
