Bunty Aur Babli 2 trailer: Saif Ali Khan-Rani Mukerji won't let upstarts Siddhant Chaturvedi-Sharvari Wagh steal their brand name
Bunty Aur Babli 2 trailer has Rani Mukerji and Saif Ali Khan playing the senior con artistes, while Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari Wagh are the upstarts who are out to rob the 'brand name' of the original pair.
Bunty Aur Babli are back, and this time with a double dose, quite literally. After 16 years of giving Bollywood some of the most unique cons, the two are returning with more forgeries and fun. But what's brought Bunty Aur Babli back? Bunty Aur Babli themselves!
The official trailer of Bunty Aur Babli 2 dropped on Monday, and as expected, it gives us the signature shenanigans of the two leads (reprised by Rani Mukerji, with Saif Ali Khan replacing Abhishek Bachchan), and well, their signature 'BB' too! And causing a ripple effect in their retired life are the new kids on the block - Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari Wagh.
The trailer shows Rani and Saif, the senior Bunty-Babli, living a simple life in Fursatgunj. The middle-aged couple have settled into a middle-class existence and have a son to boot. And just when they thought their lives were settled, a cop played by Pankaj Tripathi (on the lines of Amitabh Bachchan's Dasrath Singh) gives them the news that "Bunty-Babli are back in action." The senior pair returns to work to unmask these newbies who are out to "steal their original Bunty-Babli brand." What more can come in their way apart from Bunty's paunch?
Bunty Aur Babli 2 flaunts the similar chemistry of the original, along with Rani's gaudy outfits. While on one hand, we have a typical cop-thief chase with Tripathi challenging Rani and Saif at every step, the new couple of Siddhant and Sharvari are doing all the wrong deeds under the guise of Bunty Aur Babli. Will the seniors be able to uncover the juniors or will they give in, is what forms the core of the plot.
New additions, Siddhant and Sharvari also expressed excitement about joining the cast and being able to portray various characters in a single film. "When you do a film like Bunty Aur Babli, you promise people that they will get to see the lead actors in disguises to pull off elaborate cons and this film will over-deliver in this regard," Siddhant shared.
Sharvari, who's set to make her "dream" Bollywood debut added, "You don't often get projects in which you play so many roles. I was determined to perform each one of them convincingly because the audience needs to be invested in the disguise so that they enjoy the con thoroughly. I had the best time getting into these looks/avatars like a complete shifter and just putting my best foot forward."
Bunty Aur Babli 2 has been directed by debutant Varun Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra. It also features Asrani and Yashpal Sharma. The film is scheduled to release in cinema halls on November 19.
