Yash Raj Films reunites Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji, presenting them to play Bunty Aur Babli in the fully rebooted sequel.
Saif and Rani were part of Yash Raj hits like Hum Tum and Ta Ra Rum Pum.
They reunite after 11 years to bring their magic back on screen.
The much-anticipated sequel will see a time leap of 10 years and feature two pairs of Bunty and Babli.
YRF had earlier announced that Siddhant Chaturvedi of Gully Boy fame and newbie Sharvari Wagh would play the new talented con artistes Bunty and Babli.
Saif joins Rani who featured in the original film alongside Abhishek Bachchan.
Says Saif, '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,' Saif adds.
'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 got tremendous love and appreciation from audiences and it is their love that has made YRF decide to make the sequel. 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,' reveals Rani.
'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.'
Bunty Aur Babli 2 will be directed by Varun Sharma, who was an assistant director on YRF';s biggest blockbusters Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai.
