Rani Mukerji is all set to con you yet again this year with Saif Ali Khan, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari Wagh in her upcoming film Bunty Aur Babli 2. Just before the lockdown was announced in March, the team of Bunty Aur Babli 2 had wrapped up its Abu Dhabi schedule which included a major part of the filming. Now, debutant director Varun V Sharma has gone back to the calendar to map out the film's last schedule, which includes filming a special number with the leads. While the song was originally envisioned as an outdoor shoot, it is learned that the makers have now decided to film it at the Yash Raj Film Studios, keeping the safety guidelines in mind.
"The song is one of the highlights of the film. After much deliberation, Varun and producer Aditya Chopra decided that shooting it within the premises, with a minimal crew, would be the best course of action. That way, they will have the advantage of a controlled environment, making it easier to adhere to the guidelines. The track will be shot in August once the permissions are in place," revealed a source, adding that the remaining patchwork shoot will also be conducted in the Andheri studio.
Speaking of Bunty Aur Babli 2, Siddhant and Sharvari will play the new-age Bunty and Babli. Rani and Saif will be seen as the original Bunty and Babli. This is the first time when Siddhant and Sharvari have teamed up for a film while Rani and Saif featured with each other in Hum Tum and Ta Ra Rum Pum, which were also produced by Yash Raj Films.
Produced by Aditya Chopra, Bunty Aur Babli 2 is being directed by debutant Varun, who was as an Assistant Director on Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai.
