With theatres being shut, the Coronavirus pandemic brought the film industry to a standstill last year. As the situation got under control in the last few months and with lockdown restrictions being uplifted, the filmmakers lined up to announce the release date of their films.

Yash Raj Film’s Bunty Aur Babli 2 starring Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukerji, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari was scheduled to release on April 23. However looking at the recent spike in Covid cases, the makers of Bunty Aur Babli 2 have decided to put the film’s release on hold. Read on to know the details.

Aditya Chopra feels that Bunty Aur Babli is a complete family entertainer and can be truly enjoyed only on the silver screen. And currently, the country is experiencing a second wave of Corona. So postponing Bunty Aur Babli’s release date seems to be the most sensible decision on the part of YRF.

The makers are now waiting for a better release window before deciding on a new release date for the Rani and Saif starrer. In this sequel of Bunty Aur Babli, we will see Siddhant and Sharvari stepping into the shoes of Bunty and Babli. Saif and Rani will play the older Bunty and Babli. The sequel will apparently showcase how the once-upon-a-time con couple who are now-innocent gets embroiled in a case again as  the younger couple uses their name to con people.

Helmed by Varun V. Sharma, Bunty Aur Babli 2 will mark the Bollywood debut of young talent Sharvari.
