Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many filmmakers had to indefinitely postpone the release date for their films. While many makers took the OTT route, others waited for the theatres to open. Last month, the theatres re-opened with a 50% seating capacity. Owing to this, many films are now lined for big-screen release. As per the reports, YRF wants to release Bunty Aur Babli 2 on Christmas 2020.
The announcement of the film was made last year and ever since then, the audience is waiting for the release. Bunty Aur Babli 2 is a rebooted sequel of the 2005 film Bunty Aur Babli. The original film featured Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan as the main leads.
The rebooted sequel just like the original will follow the journey of con artists. While Siddhant and Sharvari will play the new cons, Rani and Saif will play the senior cons.
The shooting for the film has already been wrapped up. Bunty Aur Babli 2 is helmed by Varun V Sharma who is known for films like Sultan, Bharat, and Adjust.
The latest reports suggest that YRF is aiming to release Bunty Aur Babli 2 on Christmas 2020. The spot was earlier occupied by Ranveer Singh starrer ’83. However, the makers of the sports drama have pushed forward the release date to 2021.
As the Christmas 2020 spot remains opens, YRF might try to take advantage of the holiday season. As it promises more footfall in the theatres.
The film was slated to release on June 22, 2020. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the makers postponed the release date.
