Gully Boy-fame Siddhant Chaturvedi and debutante Sharvari are set to headline Yash Raj Films' Bunty Aur Babli 2, a sequel to the 2005 crime comedy, Bunty Aur Babli.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 will be directed by Varun Sharma, who has previously worked as an assistant director on YRF blockbusters Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai.
Varun, who has also penned the script, said the sequel, which has already gone on floors, is set in the current era. "Siddhant caught everyone's eye with his brilliant acting debut in Gully Boy and became the heartthrob of the nation. We are very excited to have him play the role of Bunty. He is a superb actor, is extremely charming, and he fits the role perfectly," the director said in a statement.
"Sharvari is an extremely special actress to watch out for. She is a powerful performer and you have to watch her on-screen to understand what we mean. Given the film and the roles, they are definitely the perfect casting. They are a fresh, hot pair and their chemistry and energy is infectious," he added.
The original Bunty Aur Babli starred Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji as con artists who are being chased by hardened police officer Dashrath Singh, played by Amitabh Bachchan.
