Legendary Asian action stars Dan Chupong and Tony Jaa from the cult action franchise, Ong Bak, will join the cast of the sequel of Lakadbaggha, the Indian Martial Arts/animal lover vigilante film, which is titled Lakadbaggha 2— The Monkey Business.

The film, which goes on floors later this year, is touted to be an action festival. Anshuman Jha, who starred in the first part as the animal lover vigilante, Arjun Bakshi, is back in town and has begun training for the sequel after the birth of his daughter in America. Confirming the news, a unit member of First Ray Films said, “We intend to make the wildest hand-to-hand combat action film from India and yes, we are roping in many international action stars, including Tony and Dan, for the sequel.”

Confirming the news, Anshuman adds, “I am very excited to have begun training for Lakadbaggha 2. The animal lover-vigilante universe gets bigger. Sunny Pang, Dan Chupong and Tony Jaa are some of the biggest Asian stars and I am a huge fan of these Asian stars. It will be a dream come true for me in addition to being a huge responsibility to be in an action film with any of them.”

Kecha Kamphakdee (Ong-Bak) and Vicky Arora (RRR and Ramayana) are signed up to design the action for the film. Ad filmmaker Sanjay Shetty (a Krav-Maga World Title holder in reality) will be directing the sequel, which will be shot across South-East Asia. With the influx of these Asian Martial Arts masters, this is an action genre film that is truly upping the tempo for the sequel.
