Actors Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji have moved to the UAE for 10 days to shoot the climax sequence of their upcoming film – Bunty Aur Babli 2. The two stars are joined by the new cons in the story – Sharvari Wagh and Siddhant Chaturvedi who will start shooting for their part soon. The team of this YRF entertainer has been shooting in Mumbai for the last two months and the director decided to take the film to Abu Dhabi for its climax scene.
The first part in the franchise that starred Abhishek belonged entirely to the heartland of India. However, this time, director Varun Sharma decided to shoot out of the country to match the expectations of the contemporary audience. He said the cons this time need to be ‘crafted for today’s audience’ and Abu Dhabi has a big scale to provide a certain kind of visual appeal to the film.
Sharma told Mid-Day in his latest interview, ‘We are shooting a highlight con in Abu Dhabi. Since Bunty Aur Babli 2 is set in today’s time, we were clear that the cons need to be crafted for today’s audience. They will expect something new and slick. The Abu Dhabi con will stand out in that regard.’
Earlier, while talking about Bunty Aur Babli 2, Saif revealed that the audience should not expect this to be Hum Tum part 2 thinking that he has reunited with Rani and there’s going to be a lot of romance-comedy in the story. The actor said it’s an entertaining film and an ‘age-appropriate’ story for him and Rani.
Apart from Saif, Rani, Sharvari and Siddhant, actor Yashpal Sharma will also be seen in an important role. The shooting of the film began on December 17, 2019 – the same day on which the makers made the announcement. The release date of Bunty Aur Babli 2 is not yet finalised.
