The makers of Bunty Aur Babli 2 have released Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari’s first look. Siddhant plays the role of the new Bunty – a suave, smart conman from the big city. While, Sharvari is being presented in an uber-glam avatar in the film in which she has been paired opposite Siddhant Chaturvedi who plays the new Bunty.
Siddhant says, “Bunty Aur Babli 2 is an extremely special film for me because it presents me as a Hindi film hero for the first time in my career. I have waited for this moment for some time now and I can’t wait to see the reaction of the industry and audiences. It is a huge project to be a part of because we have all grown up watching Bunty Aur Babli and playing Bunty is a dream come true moment for me.”
He adds, “I come from Ballia in Uttar Pradesh and I understand the world of the film, I understand the aspirations of the youth hailing from these parts of our country. So, I was sold on the film immediately as soon as I heard the narration. I’m a quintessential Hindi masala film lover and now that I’m the hero of a commercial Hindi film like this, I feel I’m blessed that the industry and YRF noticed me deliver the goods. I have done my best to play the new Bunty. He is set in a different world, a technology-forward world, a world I have grown up in. I hope to entertain everyone with my performance in the rebooted Bunty Aur Babli 2.”
Sharvari says, “I was honoured that YRF could see me as the new Babli in the film. Babli is an iconic character in the history of Indian cinema, thanks to Rani ma’am’s incredible work in the first film. I’m a big fan of her and I hope that I have done justice to the role. Since my character is based in today’s times, I have tried to play it in my own way and I only hope that Rani ma’am and the audiences will love my effort. This is my big-screen debut and I have given it my all. I can’t wait to see all the responses that my performance will evoke. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.”
Bunty Aur Babli 2 is an out-and-out family entertainer that is set to release worldwide on November 19, 2021. Bunty Aur Babli 2 has been directed by Varun V. Sharma, who worked as an Assistant Director in YRF’s biggest blockbusters Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. In an exciting casting coup, it reunites the much-loved on-screen pairing of Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji (Hum Tum, Ta Ra Rum Pum), who plays the OG Babli in this film. The trailer of Bunty Aur Babli 2 is out today.
