‘Hangover 2’ was liberating, says Todd Phillips

London: Director Todd Phillips says that despite fan`s expectations, he was not under pressure while making the sequel of `The Hangover`.

The 40-year-old filmmaker is now ready with `The Hangover 2` and said that making the film was a liberating experience, reported Contactmusic.

"It`s really liberating because I`ve never made a movie that I really knew people were going to see. So, in a weird way, I found the pressure was actually taken off me in that respect. For the first time, we`re making a movie that a lot of people are actually anticipating. It sort of takes a lot of pressure off," said Phillips.

The director also said he chose to film in Bangkok because of the element of "danger" besides adding a "mystery" edge to the characters.

"There`s a few reasons we chose Bangkok, but one of them is that we wanted to up the danger. We wanted to up the consequence and the stakes. It`s also a little bit more mysterious to these guys. It`s not that familiar and they don`t speak the language. There are all these elements that made it a little more of a scary proposition," added Phillips.

`Hangover 2` which stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis in the lead releases on 26 May.
