Sixteen years after the release of the first film, YRF is set to release Bunty Aur Babli 2, and the film’s teaser is out now. The film starred actors Rani Mukerji, Saif Ali Khan, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari. The teaser suggests that there will be two Bunty-Babli groups in the film. And our two leaders, Saif and Rani, are obviously not happy.
Rani Mukerji regains her place in the original film with Saif stepping into the shoes of Abhishek Bachchan. The first film ends with the artists giving up their illegal activities and helping police officer Dashrath Singh, played by Amitabh Bachchan, to solve the crime.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 reunites Saif and Rani on the screen after 12 years and they both remember the old days. The two have worked together on films such as Hum Tum, Tara Rum Pum and Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic. Joined by Bunty and Babli, Siddhant and Sharvari, they appear to be asking what’s going on. Director Varun Sharma says Adi sir (producer Aditya Chopra) changed the script. Bunty Aur Babli 2 is directed by Varun V. Sharma, who has served as Assistant Director at YRF’s major producers Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. The original Bunty Aur Babli featured Rani Mukerji featuring Abhishek Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan.
Saif Ali Khan earlier said in a statement, “Bunty Aur Babli 2 is a new and revised version in the modern era. A beautiful script that touched me immediately. “And Rani and I have always been very happy to work together, and look forward to working together again. It’s equally wonderful to be back at YRF again.”
Sharvari, who made the Bollywood debut with Bunty Aur Babli 2, plays the role of the new Babli in the film. She said, “It was great fun to shoot this because here we were pressured by Saif sir and Rani ma’am for being a bunty and a fake Babli, and we had to prove it to them and saying how great we are as artists because we are tech boom kids. It was just a laugh riot shooting this unit and the team.”
The release of the film had been postponed earlier due to the second wave of epidemics. Bunty Aur Babli 2 is directed by Varun Sharma and is expected to be released from theaters on November 19.
