Actor Ali Fazal says he is excited to be passing on the baton to actors Sonakshi Sinha and Jassi Gill to take forward the “Happy Bhag Jayegi” story.

At the moment, Ali is busy shooting for the sequel “Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi” in Malaysia.


“This is my first time in Malaysia. It was quite the start with my flight losing one engine almost seconds before take-off from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and then losing my bags which arrived three days later,” Ali said in a statement to IANS.

“I guess the chaos of ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi’ infected the air traffic. I am excited to be passing the baton to Sonakshi and Jassi in part two.”

“Happy Bhag Jayegi”, featuring Diana Penty, Ali Fazal and Abhay Deol, was released in 2016. The romantic comedy narrated the story of a girl named Happy, who runs away from her wedding and reaches Pakistan by mistake.

Diana features in the sequel too. She is joined by actress Sonakshi Sinha whose character also runs away from her wedding. Mudassar Aziz, who helmed the first part, is back on the director’s chair for the sequel.

Made under the banner Eros International and Aanand L Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions, the film will also feature Abhay Deol and Jimmy Shergill. “Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi” is set to release on August 24.

Hackers have stolen crypto tokens worth $120 million from Blockchain-based decentralised finance (DeFi) platform BadgerDAO.

Hackers have stolen crypto tokens worth $120 million from Blockchain-based decentralised finance (DeFi) platform BadgerDAO. Several crypto wallets were drained before the platform could stop the cyber attack. In a tweet, Badger said it has received reports of unauthorised withdrawals of user funds. "As Badger engineers investigate this, all smart contracts have been paused to prevent further withdrawals. Our investigation is ongoing and we will release further information as soon as possible," the company said late on Thursday.

According to the blockchain security and data analytics Peckshield, the various tokens stolen in the attack are worth about $120 million, reports The Verge. According to reports, someone inserted a malicious script in the user interface (UI) of their website. Badger has retained data forensics experts Chainalysis to explore the full scale of the incident and authorities in both the US and Canada have been informed. "Badger is cooperating fully with external investigations as well as proceeding with its own," it said. DeFi is a collective term for financial products and services that are open, decentralised and accessible to anyone. DeFi products open up financial services to anyone with an internet connection and they are largely owned and maintained by their users. While the attack didn't reveal specific flaws within Blockchain tech itself, it managed to exploit the older "web 2.0" technology that most users need to use to perform transactions, according to reports.
