International model from Australia, Kristina Akheeva, has been signed on to play the love interest of Sunny Deol in the sequel to Yamla Pagla Deewana. And Neha Sharma, who was part of the hit film Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum, will be paired with Bobby Deol.
While Samir Karnik directed the Deols in the prequel, the sequel will be helmed by Sangeeth Sivan. The sequel too promises to be a laugh riot and will retain the old characters but will have a completely different story.
Sangeeth Sivan has earlier worked with Sunny Deol in Zor and Bobby in Ek-The Power Of One. Apart from Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, Sangeeth is also working with Bobby and Dharmendra in a film titled Cheers, which will go on floors after Yamla Pagla Deewana is complete.
The film will go on floors in September in UK.
