In addition to the actor, Vishal Furia, the filmmaker, will return for the sequel to the horror drama, which will premiere on the streaming service Prime Video.

According to reports, Chhorii 2 will continue Bharuccha's character, Sakshi's story where the previous movie left off and will include fresh horrors as well as the returns of several important characters.
After the success of Chhorii, the actor is honoured to now star in a franchise with a female lead. She stated, "This doesn't occur frequently. We were kind of given room to make Chhorii into a franchise since people liked and spoke about it. Of course the director, producer, and actors want to make money from the movie they produce. Nobody wants to create a movie to be in loss, right? Part 2 was made possible by the fact that everyone enjoyed the first movie. The team is feeling great right now." The actor added, "there’s a whole new excitement to do it again. I am very grateful for it."
The actor has upcoming female-driven movies, including Chhorri and Akelli. She also has Selfie, which stars Akshay Kumar, Emraan Hashmi, and Diana Penty in lead roles.
