Yash Raj Films is reuniting Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji for the sequel of ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ . Saif and Rani delivered big hits like ‘Hum Tum’ and ‘Ta Ra Rum Pum’. They were celebrated as a pair to watch as they have a lot of chemistry on-screen. Now after 11 years, the stars are reuniting to bring their magic back on screen and fans cannot wait.
The much-anticipated sequel will see a huge leap of 10 years and feature two pairs of Bunty and Babli. YRF had recently announced an incredibly fresh pairing of Siddhant Chaturvedi and a new heroine, Sharvari, as the new talented conmen Bunty and Babli. This is a huge twist to watch out for and it will be very interesting to see the dynamics between the two on-screen conmen couples.
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 originals 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.”
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.”
The film is produced by Aditya Chopra. YRF is famous for launching several new directors under its banner and so ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’ will be directed by Varun Sharma. Sharma was an Assistant Director on YRF’s biggest blockbusters ‘Sultan’ and ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’.
