With much buzz surrounding the sequel to ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ (2005), rumours have been rife over the cast of the Yash Raj Films production.
Latest buzz doing the round suggests that ‘Gully Boy’ star Siddhant Chaturvedi could be paired opposite Janhvi Kapoor as the leads in the comedy sequel. The original starred an epic cast featuring Abhishek Bachchan, Ranu Mukerji and Amitabh Bachchan. There were talks earlier that R Madhavan could be stepping into the sequel for a pivotal role but this has yet to be confirmed.
A source told Mid-Day, “Though Ishaan Khatter was initially considered for the male lead, he has allotted bulk dates to Mira Nair’s ‘A Suitable Boy’. Since the makers want to roll with Bunty Aur Babli 2 before year-end, they are in talks with Siddhant. The actor will wrap up the shoot of Inside Edge’s latest season, post which he can work on the comedy. If Janhvi comes on board, she is likely to squeeze in the project between Dostana 2, and Takht, which rolls in February-end. The two have yet to sign on the dotted line.”
