The original, starred actors Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan in the lead roles, as two people who turn grifters as they set out on a journey to their dream city, Mumbai.
The film, which is being directed by debutant Varun Sharma will see a time leap of 10 years and feature two pairs of ‘Bunty and Babli’. Siddhant Chaturvedi of Gully Boy fame and newbie Sharvari are one of them.
Now, with Rani back in the franchise and Saif in tow, it will be interesting to see the dynamics between the two on-screen con couples in Bunty Aur Babli 2, which is produced by Aditya Chopra.
