Mumbai: Actress Neha Sharma and Russian model Kristina Akheeva will be starring opposite Deol brothers Bobby and Sunny in the sequel to hit comedy `Yamla Pagla Deewana`.
There was a buzz that Bipasha Basu and Katrina Kaif were to feature in the sequel.
But the makers of `YPD 2` have announced that they have zeroed in on Neha opposite Bobby and Kristina for Sunny in the film.
Neha was last seen in Ekta Kapoor`s adult comedy `Kya Super Kool Hai Hum` and Kristina has worked for many hi-profile brands and campaigns all over the world.
The 2011 film `Yamla Pagla Deewana` was directed by Samir Karnik and starred Dharmendra, Sunny opposite Australian actress Emma Brown Garrett, and Bobby with Kulraj Randhawa.
In the sequel, the Deols will be seen reprising their roles, while the leading ladies have been replaced and so has been the director.
The new movie will be helmed by Sangeeth Sivan, known for films like `Kya Kool Hai Hum` and `Apna Sapna Money Money`.
The shoot for `Yamla Pagla Deewana 2` will begin in UK from the second week of September.
