In 2005, Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji starred in a movie titled Bunty Aur Babli. The comedy flick also starred Amitabh Bachchan in a pivotal role. Bunty Aur Babli was a super hit at the box office and now, after 14 years of the film’s release, the makers have announced the sequel to the movie titled Bunty Aur Babli 2.
But well, this time it’s not Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan. There were reports that the movie will star Gully Boy fame actor Siddhant Chaturvedi and a new actress named Sharvari. Well, the reports have turned out to be true.
YRF took to Instagram to announce the film. They posted, “Meet the new Bunty aur Babli! @siddhantchaturvedi | @sharvari | #BuntyAurBabli2 | #VarunSharma | @buntyaurbabli2 #siddhantchaturvedi #sharvari #newfilm #announcement #buntyaurbabli #movies #yrf #yrffilms #bollywood.”
While the first instalment was directed by Shaad Ali, the sequel is written and directed by Varun Sharma. The filmmaker while talking about casting Siddhant and Sharvari stated, “Bunty Aur Babli 2 is completely set in today’s time. Siddhant caught everyone’s eye with his brilliant acting debut in Gully Boy and became the heartthrob of the nation. We are very excited to have him play the role of Bunty. He is a superb actor, is extremely charming and he fits the role perfectly. Sharvari is an extremely special actress to watch out for. She is a powerful performer and you have to watch her on-screen to understand what we mean. Given the film and the roles, they are definitely the perfect casting. They are a fresh, hot pair and their chemistry and energy is infectious.”
Well, there were reports that apart from Siddhant and Sharvari, Bunty Aur Babli 2 will also star Rani Mukerji and Saif Ali Khan. The makers have not yet officially announced about the two actors starring in the film, but even during the interviews of Mardaani 2, Rani had hinted at starring in Bunty Aur Babli 2. So, let’s wait and watch.
