Cine Punjab News Network
After the announcement of Babbu Mann's Baaz yesterday, here's another good news for Punjabi Cinema. Legendary director Manmohan Singh returns with Jimmy Sheirgill for the sequel to their superhit film Munde UK De (2009). They both are coming together after 5 years although Manji (short for Manmohan Singh) introduced Jimmy Sheirgill with his 2005 film Yaaran Naal Baharan.
The shooting of Munde UK De 2 is starting today and it will release later this year or early next year. From the original starcast of Munde UK De, Neeru Bajwa and Gurpreet Ghuggi are returning whereas Binnu Dhillon is the latest addition in the starcast.

Both returning together after major professional failures
Although Munde UK De 2 will be seen as one of the most awaited Punjabi films but both Manji and Jimmy Sheirgill's recent failures cannot be ignored. Manji after giving several hits with Harbhajan Mann and Jimmy Sheirgill went on to make Ik Kudi Punjab Di (2010) and Ajj De Ranjhe (2012), both of which didn't do well with former still managing to be a semi-hit. Similarly, Jimmy Sheirgill's last release Rangeelay was an average fare too.
Second Manmohan Singh-Jimmy Sheirgill film to have a sequel
Punjabi Cinema hasn't seen too many sequels so far but whatever they have so far seems to be showing a liking towards Manmohan Singh-Jimmy Sheirgill films. Their Yaaran Naal Baharan saw a sequel too, although the film bombed a couple years back (it didn't have anyone from the original team except the producers). Here's hoping Munde UK De 2 sees worldwide success like Jatt and Juliet 2.
Is Harbhajan Mann-Manmohan Singh film next?
Now, the next big question is... whether Manmohan Singh will also turn back to his former protégé Harbhajan Mann. Both of them together have given some of the biggest blockbusters in the history of Punjabi Cinema. The word out there is that, they will be working together very soon and if this happens, Manmohan Singh, Jimmy Sheirgill and Harbhajan Mann will be back in full form (fingers crossed!).
