Bollywood is slowly getting ready to resume shooting on a regular basis, as more and more filmmakers begin shoots on outdoor locations. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji-starrer Bunty Aur Babli 2 will resume shooting soon, with a huge-canvas song-and-dance sequence featuring 200 dancers.
According to the report, a source close to the film said that producer Aditya Chopra has "planned an elaborate choreographic confection with profusion of chorus dancers". However, actors Saif and Rani are worried about the cast and crew's safety. The source further added, "They've already expressed their unhappiness with being put in such a heavy crowd during these times of corona contagion. Of course, Aditya Chopra will be taking every possible precaution. But Saif and Rani would rather have the song situation scaled-down, since scrapping it is not possible, as it comes at an essential juncture in the story."
Shooting For Bunty And Babli To Resume In August
In an earlier report, Filmfare quoted a source talking about the song sequence. The source said, "The song is one of the highlights of the film. After much deliberation, Varun and producer Aditya Chopra decided that shooting it within the premises, with a minimal crew, would be the best course of action. That way, they will have the advantage of a controlled environment, making it easier to adhere to the guidelines. The track will be shot in August once the permissions are in place."
The Film's Last Schedule Is Spending
Bunty Aur Babli 2's shoot was halted earlier this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Reports suggested major chunk of the film had been already shot, and the team will resume work for the final schedule soon.
The Sequel Is Directed By Varun V Sharma
The film is a sequel to the 2005 hit film Bunty Aur Babli starring Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukerji and Amitabh Bachchan. The film directed by Shaad Ali went on to become a hit comedy, which is enjoyed by fans even today. The sequel however, directed by Varun V Sharma stars Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukerji, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari Wagh in lead roles.
