Bunty Aur Babli are back, and this time with a double dose, quite literally. After 16 years of giving Bollywood some of the most unique cons, the two are returning with more forgeries and fun. But what’s brought Bunty Aur Babli back? Bunty Aur Babli themselves!

Confused?

The official trailer of Bunty Aur Babli 2 dropped on Monday, and as expected, it gives us the signature shenanigans of the two leads (reprised by Rani Mukerji, with Saif Ali Khan replacing Abhishek Bachchan), and well, their signature ‘BB’ too! And causing a ripple effect in their retired life are the new kids on the block – Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari Wagh.

The trailer shows Rani and Saif, the senior Bunty-Babli, living a simple life in Fursatgunj. The middle-aged couple have settled into a middle-class existence and have a son to boot. And just when they thought their lives were settled, a cop played by Pankaj Tripathi (on the lines of Amitabh Bachchan’s Dasrath Singh) gives them the news that “Bunty-Babli are back in action.” The senior pair returns to work to unmask these newbies who are out to “steal their original Bunty-Babli brand.” What more can come in their way apart from Bunty’s paunch?

Bunty Aur Babli 2 flaunts the similar chemistry of the original, along with Rani’s gaudy outfits. While on one hand, we have a typical cop-thief chase with Tripathi challenging Rani and Saif at every step, the new couple of Siddhant and Sharvari are doing all the wrong deeds under the guise of Bunty Aur Babli. Will the seniors be able to uncover the juniors or will they give in, is what forms the core of the plot.

Rani called Bunty Aur Babli 2 “a battle to watch out for”. In a statement, she said, “Both sets of con-couples are extremely intelligent. They are the best when it comes to wearing disguises because they are the best at conning people with this skill.” Saif on his part gave due credit to the make-up and prosthetics department for upping the game.

“Films on con jobs have historically had great disguises and that’s half the fun. Nowadays we have prosthetics and makeup of a totally different level so people can expect really amazing get-ups and disguises from the cast and doing all that was a lot of fun,” Saif added.

New additions, Siddhant and Sharvari also expressed excitement about joining the cast and being able to portray various characters in a single film. “When you do a film like Bunty Aur Babli, you promise people that they will get to see the lead actors in disguises to pull off elaborate cons and this film will over-deliver in this regard,” Siddhant shared.

Sharvari, who’s set to make her “dream” Bollywood debut added, “You don’t often get projects in which you play so many roles. I was determined to perform each one of them convincingly because the audience needs to be invested in the disguise so that they enjoy the con thoroughly. I had the best time getting into these looks/avatars like a complete shifter and just putting my best foot forward.”

Bunty Aur Babli 2 has been directed by debutant Varun Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra. It also features Asrani and Yashpal Sharma. The film is scheduled to release in cinema halls on November 19.
