Acclaimed actor Pankaj Tripathi is all set for a new avatar this time as a cop in Bunty Aur Babli 2! Pankaj will be seen playing the role Jatayu Singh, the policeman who pits the two pairs of con-artists Bunty and Babli and Bunty aur Babli against each other heist comedy.
The actor recently revealed that choosing to do Bunty Aur Babli 2 was a no-brainer for him because he feels the hilarious script will thoroughly entertain audiences. Pankaj says, “I’m actually always looking for interesting characters to play on screen and when YRF approached me with Bunty Aur Babli 2, it was something I was looking for in a film. I wanted to do a good comedy, a light-hearted script that will entertain audiences across every age group of our country. Bunty Aur Babli 2 is that script.”
He adds, “Coming out of the pandemic, people want to be entertained to the fullest when they go to a theatre and Bunty Aur Babli 2 will deliver on this promise in a big way. It’s a hilarious script and my character of Jatayu Singh popped out as a super-intelligent yet shrewd cop who was pitting the two sets of con-artists Bunty Aur Babli against each other. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience!”
Bunty Aur Babli 2 features Gully Boy actor Siddhant Chaturvedi and debutant actress Sharvari as the new con-couple Bunty and Babli. The film also has Rani Mukerji and Saif Ali Khan playing the original Bunty and Babli. This comedy will pit these two sets of con artists, from different generations, against each other as they try to prove who is the better con-couple.
Yash Raj Films’ Bunty Aur Babli 2, which is set to release worldwide on November 19, 2021, has been directed by Varun V. Sharma, who has worked as an Assistant Director in YRF’s biggest blockbusters “Sultan” and “Tiger Zinda Hai”.
