Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji starrer Bunty Aur Babli released in 2005 and it turned out one of the most amazing films of Yash Raj Films.

The film was a story of two con artists and it received immense love from the audience.

The sequel of 2005 released film is in the discussions for a long time and there were the reports that Saif Ali Khan may be seen in a pivotal role in the film. However, it looks like that Saif is no more a part of the project. Saif has just opted out of the film just before the film goes on floors. Saif has not told the reason but he made a sudden exit from the film. This unexpected exit has landed the makers in a shock.


Abhishek Bachchan

It was also told that after Saif Ali Khan, the makers also contacted previous film's lead actor Abhishek Bachchan but he also rejected it and said that the character doesn't appeal to him. Not it will have to see who will get Saif's role in the film.

Bollywood Hungama quoted a close source, “Bunty Aur Babli 2 is supposed to go on floors soon and with Saif backing out at the last moment, the makers are left in a lurch. The reason for Saif’s decision is not known yet but it seems, he had second thoughts about his role. YRF is now working overtime to find a suitable replacement.”
