Mumbai: Actor Kirti Kulhari is all set to return as Parminder in the sequel to her comedy movie "Khichdi: The Movie".

Kulhari had made her film debut with the 2010 movie, which was based on the popular television show of the same title. Since then, the actor has given critically-acclaimed performances in movies and shows such as "Pink", "Shaitan", "Uri: The Surgical Strike", "Four More Shots Please!" and "Human".

In a statement, the 37-year-old actor said she is glad to return to the comedy franchise along with rest of the cast -- Supriya Pathak (Hansa), Jamnadas Majhetia (Himanshu), Anang Desai (Babuji) and Rajeev Mehta (Praful).

"'Khichdi 2' is finally happening and it's going to be a hilarious ride. I have so many memories from the first film, from shooting the song 'Chal Chal Bhonsle Market' with JD to doing all the crazy comedy scenes. I am so happy to return as Parminder in 'Khichdi 2' since this is where it all started for me," Kulhari said.

"I have realised over the years what a massive fan-following 'Khichdi' has, especially among kids and families. I am often asked why I don't do comedies anymore so it's lovely to return to the genre with this sequel. This 'Khichdi' will be tastier, spicier and funnier than before," she added.

The actor has already started shooting for the sequel. Besides "Khichdi 2", Kulhari will also be seen in her debut production "Nayeka".
