The current cast of JPNA2 comprises Humayun Saeed, Vasay Chaudhry, Ahmed Ali Butt, Uzma Khan, Sarwat Gilani from the first installment, with new additions: Fahad Mustafa, Mawra Hocane and Kubra Khan.
Parts of the movie will be shot in Turkey while some portions will also be filmed in Dubai.
There were earlier reports that Rishi Kapoor was offered a role in the movie which he politely turned down. Syra Shehroz was also offered a part in JPNA2 - however, she also refused saying that her role wasn’t “substantial” enough.

The first chapter of the movie was adored by Pakistani audiences worldwide while some movie-goers also criticised it for its vulgarity - as did Hamza Ali Abbasi who stated that the movie would’ve done well without an item number too so there wasn’t a need to include it.
The movie is set to release sometime next year and we’re anxious to see what this star-studded cast has in store for us this time around.
