A few months ago we reported that Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji starrer Bunty Aur Babli is going to have a sequel. However, the original director Shaad Ali is keen to part of the project, then it was also told that Abhishek Bachchan also denied being a part of the project. Then the team approached Saif Ali Khan for the part but he also walked out of the film after a few discussions.
However, now the team of YRF has got a name that will replace Saif Ali Khan in the part in Bunty Aur Babli 2.0. According to Bollywood Hungama, actor R Madhavan has signed to play the role that Saif denied to play. Interestingly, he will star opposite Rani Mukerji. The film already has Siddhant Chaturvedi, the fame of Gully Boy to play a leading role in the film.
