Pulkit is not stressed about Fukrey Returns

Mumbai: Pulkit Samrat says the team is not facing the "burden of expectations" with Fukrey Returns as they never expected the first movie to be a box office success. Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, the film, set in Delhi, was about four men – Hunny (Pulkit), Choocha (Varun Sharma), Lali (Manjot Singh) and Zafar (Ali Fazal) – who dream of making it big and want to make easy money.

They approach the notorious Bholi (Richa Chadha) to invest in their plan but things go haywire and how they escape from it basically formed the plot line of Fukrey.
In an interview, Pulkit says, "We made the first part of Fukrey with just the hope that people will like it and the film went on to another level (referring it to be a super hit). So I am not keeping any burden on me, no expectations for the sequel." Directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, Fukrey Returns features the same cast as part one. While Fukrey went on to become a sleeper hit upon its release in 2013, Pulkit says the team did not succumb to any pressure during filming of the sequel.
"There was a little nervousness before we started but the moment we met, we bonded as the characters. We automatically came into that zone. We wouldn't have been able to work if we gave in to the pressure," he adds. The film steers away from crass jokes and double meaning dialogues, something which Pulkit said comes from the sensibility of everyone involved with the project.
"Excel Entertainment has a certain sensibility with which they make films. We all, including Ritesh and Farhan, share the same sensibility. All the scripts I am sure go to Javed (Akhtar) uncle as well. You can't pass anything crass with them." The film is scheduled to release on December 8.
