The production of Yaariyan 2

The film went through multiple phases of shoot and development after the initial announcement in October 2022.


Directors Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru came in with their skills after a successful directorial debut in films like Lucky:

No Time for Love and Sanam Teri Kasam. With the announcement of the film, the creators hinted at a May 2023 release date. However, producing banner T-Series later shifted the release date to October 2023 to further fuel anticipation among the fans.

Filming schedule

Initial shoot for the film began in June 2022 in Shimla which contributed to the scenic backdrops of the film. The crew then moved to Mumbai to shoot for the urban scenes during the second schedule of the shoot. Locations like the iconic Charni Road railway station overbridge in Mumbai were chosen for filming major scenes. The crew went international to shoot in the UK as well.

However, filming took a hit when Divya Khosla Kumar was injured when filming for an action sequence. The outskirts of Bangalore also served as a backdrop for some scenes to further add to the diversity of the film’s visual appeal.

Controversies of Yaariyan 2

The journey from production to final release was not all rainbows and sunshine for the creators as they got their fair share of controversies. Creators faced backlash from the Sikh Talmel Committee who filed an FIR against

the film to object against a scene that features Meezaan Jafri wearing a kirpan in the song, Saure Ghar. According to the official reports, the committee alleged that,

since Jafri is a non-baptised Sikh, he is not allowed to wear a kirpan.

Fuel was added to the fire when the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee lodged a complaint against producing banner T-Series,

the directors and actor Meezaan Jafri, accusing them of intentionally arousing religious sentiments. According to the Indian Penal Code, this offence is tried under the Section 295A.

Clear point

In response to all the backlash regarding the scene with the kirpan, the actors and creators have issued a public apology and clarified that the actor was wearing a Khukri and not a kirpan. Khukri is a weapon that wields no cultural or religious significance. Also, the creators were prompt to take off the contentious scene after the incident. Though quite unfortunate, this incident did not overshadow the overall experience of the film.

Yaariyan 2, with its blend of lovely cinematography, a compelling storyline, and noteworthy performances from the cast, successfully continues the legacy of its predecessor. The film navigates through the complexities of relationships, personal aspirations,

and societal expectations, delivering a tale that resonates with a diverse audience. The character arcs of Laadli, Shikhar, and Bajju are carefully crafted, allowing each actor to shine in their respective roles. The seamless integration of emotional depth, romance,

and thrilling moments, particularly in the bike racing sequences, keeps the audience engaged throughout the film.

Despite the controversies surrounding religious sentiments, the filmmakers’ prompt response and corrective actions demonstrate a commitment to cultural sensitivity. The issues did not overshadow the film’s merits, which lie in its storytelling prowess and the ability to evoke a range of emotions from the audience.
