Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan's 2005 hit Bunty Aur Babli is all set for a sequel. The film will be titled Bunty Aur Babli Again, will soon go on floors, and will see the lead pair Abhishek and Rani reprising their roles.
Apart from the duo, the film also starred Amitabh Bachchan as a cop.
It was the first film when the audience saw the real-life father-son duo Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan together, while Abhishek's then-soon-to-be-wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made a guest appearance.
A source reveals, "Though Ishaan Khatter was initially considered for the male lead, he has allotted bulk dates to Mira Nair's A Suitable Boy.
Since the makers want to roll with Bunty Aur Babli 2 before year-end, they are in talks with Siddhant. The actor will wrap up the shoot of Inside Edge's latest season, post which he can work on the comedy. If Janhvi comes on board, she is likely to squeeze in the project between Dostana 2, and Takht, which rolls in February-end. The two have yet to sign on the dotted line." Following months of speculation, it appears that Yash Raj Films has finally decided to go forward with the second instalment of Bunty Aur Babli, the 2005 hit that featured Rani Mukerji, Abhishek Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan. Shaad Ali, who helmed the original, will return for the second part.
