Bunty Aur Babli 2 also features Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari in the lead roles.
It was in 2019 when Yash Raj Films gave happy news to the fans of their blockbuster Bunty Aur Babli. After 15 years, they are returning with the sequel to the Shaad Ali directorial titled Bunty Aur Babli 2. Not just that, the original 'Babli' Rani Mukerji has teamed up with her 'Hum' Saif Ali Khan in the film which is being helmed by Varun V Sharma. The film also features the Siddhant Chaturvedi and debutante Sharvari as the new-gen Bunty aur Babli.
Like the first instalment, Bunty Aur Babli 2 will also show two con pairs duping people in their twisted way. It's yet to be known how two couples played by Saif Ali Khan & Rani Mukerji and Siddhant Chaturvedi & Sharvari cross paths in the film.
Like the 2015 film, Bunty Aur Babli 2 also has a similar logo but '2' attached to it. The makers announced it with the theme sound of the film which is as same as that of the first instalment.
In their official statement, Yash Raj Films described the premise as "Yash Raj Films is making Bunty Aur Babli 2 and it has completely rebooted the film to be set in today’s day and age. The much-anticipated sequel will see a huge time leap of 10 years and introduce an incredibly fresh pair as the talented conmen Bunty Aur Babli."
Earlier in a statement, Rani Mukerji spoke about reuniting with her Hum Tum co-star Saif Ali Khan and not the OG 'Bunty' Abhishek Bachchan for Bunty Aur Babli 2. The actor had said, "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."
With Bunty Aur Babli 2, Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji have reunited after 13 years. Earlier, they worked together in the movies namely Hum Tum, Ta Ra Rum Pum and Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic.
On reuniting with Saif, Rani had earlier said, "I have lovely memories of working with him and I’m 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."
While Saif added, "Rani and I have always had a lot of fun working with each other and I’m looking forward to our creative collaboration again."
Varun V Sharma is making his directorial debut with Bunty Aur Babli 2. Earlier, he was an assistant director on the sets of Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai both starring Salman Khan and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
The film has been extensively shot in different parts of the country including Mumbai. But for an international schedule, the team headed to Abu Dhabi and a few happy photos of them made it to the Internet and instantly went viral.
As the theatres are reopening in Maharashtra, Bunty Aur Babli 2 is finally getting a release date after a year on November 19, 2021.
