As we revealed earlier Bunty Aur Babli is coming back for a second installment. YRF announced an incredibly fresh pairing of Siddhant Chaturvedi (of Gully Boy fame) and a new heroine, Sharvari, as the new talented conmen Bunty and Babli.
Now we have some more very exciting casting news! Rani Mukerji will be reprising her role but this time her partner in crime would be played by Saif Ali Khan in the much-anticipated sequel that will see a huge time leap of 10 years.
Of course Rani and Saif have starred as a wonderful jodi with infectious chemistry in big hits like Hum Tum and Ta Ra Rum Pum. Now, they are reuniting after 11 years to bring their brilliance back on screen and every one couldn’t be more excited.
Rani Mukerji says, “The original Bunty Aur Babli got tremendous love and appreciation from audiences and it is their love that has made YRF decide to make the sequel. Abhishek and I were both approached by YRF to reprise our roles as the originals in Bunty Aur Babli 2 but, unfortunately, things didn’t work out with him and we will miss him dearly. As a team, we are so happy to welcome Saif. I have lovely memories of working with him and I’m really looking forward to creating something new and exciting with him in Bunty Aur Babli 2. Hopefully, audiences will give us the same love that they have given our earlier films.”
Saif Ali Khan is elated to be a part of the franchise. He says, “Bunty Aur Babli 2 is a completely rebooted sequel and is set in today’s time. It is a fantastic script that hooked me on instantly. It is an out and out entertainer for the entire family to sit and enjoy and this is what I loved and connected with.
“Also, it’s a new role for me, new language and milieu and that’s what I really look for in a script. I also love the dynamics between the original and the new Bunty Babli in the film. It’s fresh, hilarious and extremely engaging. Rani and I have always had a lot of fun working with each other and I’m looking forward to our creative collaboration again. It’s also equally amazing to be back home at YRF again.”
We can’t wait to see the, bring their magic back to the screen in this exciting film!
