If you’re a Bollywood buff then you’ll know what a great film Bunty Aur Babli is. The film continues to be quite the favourite among many Bollywood fans. The film which starred Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji won the hearts of all its audiences and remains to be a good watch with the whole family. Now, reports are suggesting that the movie is soon to get a sequel which will see a young generation couple playing the lead roles. Now if we tell you that Saif Ali Khan was approached for the film, would you be excited?
Saif Ali Khan
Well, if rumours are to be believed, actor Saif Ali Khan Pataudi was approached by the filmmakers to play one of the pivotal roles in the movie. While reports are suggesting that the Nawab has been approached, it is yet to be confirmed by the Sacred Games actor whether or not he will be taking up the role in the sequel. What we do know however is that Saif Ali Khan has several projects that he is currently working on so it is unlikely that he will take up the offer.
Bunty Aur Babli director Shaad Ali is all set to return to direct the second installment as well. The story has reportedly been written in a way which requires two leading pairs. We also are not sure whether Amitabh Bachchan will also reprise his role in the sequel. But for now, the filmmakers are currently in process of looking out for the Gen-Y actors for the film. There are certain names that have popped up for the role but nothing has been set in stone as yet. The film is all set to be produced by Yash Raj Films.
