Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan are NOT Part of Bunty Aur Babli Sequel

There are unconfirmed reports filtering around that a sequel to the 2005 hit Bunty Aur Babli. However, sources say these stories  are not only ill-conceived  but also  premature. A source  in the know informs, “It is not even a thought. Why would anyone want to make a sequel to a film that came 14  years ago unless  there  is  a  good reason for it, meaning a  solid script? And  there isn’t even a germ  of an idea  regarding this.”

The  two primary actors in the original film Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan who played the principal male protagonists are not aware of  any plans to a sequel to the  only film where  they were not cast as father and son.

Moreover there were reports that Saif Ali Khan  was  being roped in for the sequel. Sources discount any possibility  of Saif being  roped in. “There’s  no script. So where  is  the  possibility  of  casting anyone?” says  the  source.

Shaad Ali who directed  the original  Bunty Aur Babli film cuts down all possibilities of  a sequel. He says, “I am  not directing that (the sequel to Bunty Aur Babli).”

 Bunty Aur Babli was a huge hit when it released back in the day. Featuring Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji as a conman and con-woman, the romantic comedy brought out the best in the stars. The surprise packet was Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in an item song, Karja Re that featured both Abhishek and Amitabh with her. The song went on to becoming an iconic number.

Why would anyone want to recreate it?
