Amitabh Bachchan, today, fondly remembered 15 years of the hit Bunty Aur Babli, which marked his first on-screen outing with his son Abhishek Bachchan.
Directed by Shaad Ali, the 2005 film featured Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan as con artiste partners-in-crime, while Amitabh Bachchan played a cop on a mission to catch them.
The crime comedy also featured actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who would marry Abhishek Bachchan in 2007, in a special appearance in the chartbuster track, Kajra Re.
Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter and shared a poster of the film, along with a picture from a stage show with Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. "15 years... Bunty Aur Babli. My first film with Abhishek. Such fun and what a team! And Kajra Re on all our stage shows, yoo hooo!" the 77-year-old actor wrote.
The father-son duo later collaborated on films such as the Sarkar films, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, and Paa.
The sequel to Bunty Aur Babli, backed by Yash Raj Films, was scheduled for release on June 26 this year. However, with the pandemic, it is unclear when the film will be released.
Touted as a rebooted sequel, the film features Rani and Saif Ali Khan, who steps in for Abhishek Bachchan as the titular Bunty in the project. It also stars Gully Boy star Siddhant Chaturvedi and The Forgotten Army actor Sharvari.
