Bunty Aur Babli 2: Siddhant Chaturvedi aka Gully Boy’s MC Sher Talks About Playing the Lead

Siddhant Chaturvedi who gained popularity as MC Sher in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy will be playing the lead in this Yashraj film

Yashraj films has signed the Gully Boy scene stealer Siddhant Chaturvedi, who made a name as MC Sher, the rapper who helps Ranveer Singh find his groove,  to play  the  lead  in Bunty Aur Babli 2,  the sequel to the hit  2005  film  which Shaad Ali had directed. Bunty Aur Babli was iconic for several reasons – it brought Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan together, it had a sparkling performance by Rani Mukerji and it had the evergreen item song, Kajarare featuring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The  sequel won’t be  directed  by Shaad — he clearly told me  he has nothing to do with Bunty Aur Babli  2 — this time the director is Varun Sharma (not the actor) who assisted Ali Abbas Zafar in Sultan and  Tiger Zinda Hai.

Says Varun, “Bunty Aur Babli 2 is completely set in today’s time. Siddhant caught everyone’s eye with his brilliant acting debut in Gully Boy and became the heartthrob of the nation. We are very excited to have him play the role of Bunty. He is a superb actor, is extremely charming and he fits the role perfectly. Sharvari is an extremely special actress to watch out for. She is a powerful performer and you have to watch her on-screen to understand what we mean. Given the film and the roles, they are definitely the perfect casting. They are a fresh, hot pair and their chemistry and energy is infectious,”

While Siddhant  plays  Bunty,  Babli will be played by a Mumbai-based debutante  named Sharwari. When I  touched base  with Siddhant, he seemed pleased but pensive. “Of course it’s dream come  true to be in one of Yashraj’s biggest franchise. But  I am just so  disheartened  by what is  happening in  the  country today. It takes away from my joy.”
