After doing intense roles in movies like Laal Kaptaan and Tanhaji: The Unsung Hero, Saif Ali Khan will now feature in the light-hearted comedy, Bunty Aur Babli 2. Reports say that his wife Kareena Kapoor Khan encouraged him to take the role.
A report in Spotboye said that while the actor was initially hesitant about taking up the project, Kareena went ahead and called up his co-actor in the film Rani Mukerji to affirm Saif’s role in the film. It states that Kareena thought it was a good time to grab a big-budget YRF movie and a light-hearted concept after a series of intense roles.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 will be a sequel to the 2005 film, starring Rani and Abhishek as leads. According to rumors, Abhishek got approached to reprise his role in the film but he couldn’t be taken on board since he had already given his dates for Sujoy Gosh’s movie where he will essay the role of the assassin Bob Biswas. The movie will be a spin-off of the 2012 movie Kahaani.
Saif and Rani last worked together in the 2004 movie Hum Tum and will get seen together on screen after over a decade. The sequel stars Siddhant Chaturvedi and debutant Sharvari Wagh in the lead.
