Bunty Aur Babli 2: Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji to bring their magic back in comic caper
After confirming a sequel to the smash hit Bunty Aur Babli, Yash Raj Films has now announced returning of Rani Mukerji with her bubbly avatar but without her original Bunty. While the sequel will feature Gully Boy star MC Sher aka Siddhant Chaturvedi and newbie Sharvari in the lead roles, Rani will be joined by none other than Saif Ali Khan as her partner in crime. Yes! The blockbuster jodi will be seen together on the silver screens after more than a decade and the fans can’t be happier. The duo has earlier starred in films such as Hum Tum (2004), Ta Ra Rum Pum (2007) and Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic (2008). The sequel will see a huge time leap of 10 years and will feature two pairs of Bunty and Babli.
Sharing her excitement and talking about the film, Rani said, “It got tremendous love and appreciation from audiences, which led to the sequel. Abhishek and I were both approached 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, the audiences will give us the same love that they have given our earlier films.”

Saif who is extremely thrilled about joining the franchise said, “It’s a completely rebooted sequel and is set in today’s time. It is a fantastic script that hooked me 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.”
Bunty Aur Babli sequel will see a time leap of 10 years and feature two con couples- one being Saif and Rani and the other being Siddhant and Sharvari! Produced by Aditya Chopra, the film has already started its first shooting schedule. The sequel will be directed by Varun Sharma, who has previously worked as an assistant director on YRF blockbusters Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai.
We are missing Abhishek Bachchan already but are equally excited to see how things pan out for these two couples coming together in the franchise. What about you guys? Let us know in the comments section below.
