Yesterday, we told you how Siddhanta Chaturvedi and Shabri Wag are going to perform in the sequel to the iconic film, Bunty and Babli. When we are thrilled about this new pair, it seems we now have reason to celebrate that our beloved Jodi, one of the beloved of the Hum Tum and Ra Ram Palm days, is about to return. Yes, Rani Mukerji and Saif Ali Khan are all set to return to the screen together with Bunty Aur Babli. Now, if that’s not interesting!
In a Hindustan Times report, Rani said:
It has received unprecedented love and appreciation from the audience, resulting in the sequel. Abhishek and I were approached to reprise the lead roles in Bunty Or Bubbly II, but unfortunately, things didn’t work out with him and we will miss him very much. As a team we are happy to welcome Saif. I have fond memories of working with him and I look forward to creating something new and interesting with him at Bunty or Bubbly II. Hopefully, the audience will love us as much as the previous pictures did.
Ask Saif about how he feels about collaboration and he says:
This is a complete reboot sequel and is set for today. This is a great script that instantly engages me. Enjoying the whole family sitting down is an out-and-out entertainer and that’s what I love and am connected to. Also, it’s a new role for me, a new language and milieu and that’s what I really look for in a script. I also like the dynamics between the original and the new Bunty Bubbles 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 look forward to our creative collaboration again.
The film is directed by Navin Varun Sharma and will be produced by Aditya Chopra and we cannot wait for it!
