Speaking about the 2021 title track, Rani Mukerji said: “I think right from the moment YRF decided to make Bunty Aur Babli 2, they were sure that they would incorporate the title track from the original film even though our movie is completely rebooting the franchise. The original tune was the soul of the first film, and it is the soul of the second too! It’s supremely catchy and it’s stood the test of time because everyone who is a lover of Hindi cinema loves this tune.”
Saif Ali Khan added, “The track has been incorporated beautifully in this film. It represents both pairs of Bunty and Babli as really mischievous, cool, fun-loving con couples who love living on the edge because they are essentially thrill-seekers. The title track now represents the fun and the chaos that these two Jodis will bring on-screen. I had loved the track. It’s a fitting homage to the original film.”
Debutant actress Sharvari said, “The title track from the original film is something that every Hindi movie lover recognises and absolutely falls in love with. So, it will evoke nostalgia for those who are lovers of the first film and also add a dose of retro cool for our generation! This track, with its incredible music, will definitely get everyone hooked on.”
Siddhant Chaturvedi added, “I’m so happy that the title track has been brought back for Bunty Aur Babli 2! For me, this tune is just pure nostalgia! It’s so cool and so fun. It evokes so many memories of watching the film with my family. Whenever this tune is played, you knew that Bunty and Babli were up to some mischief and this time you will have a double dose of that!”
The sequel has been directed by Varun V. Sharma, who has worked as an Assistant Director in YRF’s biggest blockbusters:Sultanand Tiger Zinda Hai.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 is set to release worldwide on November 19, 2021.
