Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji were the much-loved on-screen pair 11 years ago. They were last seen together in the 2008 film ‘Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic’, and now, they will be reuniting for ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’.
The film already has on board Siddhant Chaturvedi and newcomer Sharvari Wagh, and Saif and Rani will join the couple in a twist of plans. 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.”
The original Bunty Aur Babli had Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji, but things did not work out with him as Rani revealed. “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.”
Directed by Varun Sharma, Bunty Aur Babli 2 goes on floors soon!
