Bollywood is smitten by sequel bugs. The makers have found an easy-peasy way to make their film a success, by rolling out a sequel to the past popular films. The Abhishek Bachchan-Rani Mukerji starrer Bunty Aur Babli too is on the cards. The buzz around Bunty Aur Babli 2 or Bunty Aur Babli Again is high with Siddhant Chaturvedi in the lead. Apart from the Gully Boy actor and his female lead, two more actors are being roped in. After Junior AB decided to not be a part of this flick, Saif Ali Khan agreed, only to make a sudden exit!

If we go by a report in Bollywood Hungama, the actor had liked the idea of the second installment. However, he later on made an exit, leaving the makers baffled. If this would have worked out, it would be a reunion film for him and YRF, with whom he has done ample films.
A source told the portal, “He seemed very interested initially and agreed to do the film. But just last week, the producers were left shocked as he told them that he doesn’t want to do the film anymore”
The source further added, “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 are now working overtime to find a suitable replacement.”
Well, it would be fun to watch Saif in a light film after a long period. However, now with the space for the new casting, we wonder if makers manage to convince Abhi-Rani to be a part of the sequel. After all, what’s the point of a second installment without the original stars in it? Do you agree?
