My Friend Ganesha II scheduled to release in July

Mumbai: Ajhai Acharya of Baba Arts has joined hands with the entire team of My Friend Ganesha and has completed the sequel My Friend Ganesha II.

The movie is scheduled for release this July. What’s more, work has already begun on My Friend Ganesha III.

In My Friend Ganesha, the animated character Ganesha had learnt a few English words. Now, in the sequel, he plays a Westernised Ganesha; with a guitar in hand, donning bermuda shorts, a tattoo and a cap, speaking more English words.

Director Rajiv S Ruia says that more or less the entire technical crew, which was associated with the first part, have been retained. Only that the sequel is produced by the Baba Arts banner, known for its multi star cast blockbusters.

"While making the first part I and my writer Sachindra Sharma decided that if the film becomes a hit we will go for its sequel. Since the film was a big hit, we made the sequel and now we will launch the third part," says Ruia.

My Friend Ganesha II features animated Ganesha, Master Ali, Harsh Chhaya, Bhairavi Goswami, Suhasini Mulay, Sulbha Deshpande and Upasana Singh.
