Ali Fazal, who will be seen in the sequel of 'Fukrey', says the movie's team had been urging director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba to make another "masterpiece".
'Fukrey' came out three years ago and featured actors Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Manjot Singh, Ali Fazal and Richa Chadha.
Sharing his excitement about the sequel, Ali said in a statement: "Oh I am thrilled to hear about this... I think in our own ways, we have been egging Mrig to bring out another masterpiece.
"So finally some ideas came together and 'Fukrey Part 2' has come into being. I think we begin in August, so I am trying to wrap up all my movie work before that and have enough time to prep for the second part."
