Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukherji’s career soared pretty high with the release of Bunty Aur Babli. The duo created a lot of noise with their individual performances and the chemistry and now the blockbuster hit was reported to get its own sequel.
However, the fans might be sad by the recent developments about the same. Now, the latest reports suggest that there has been a slight change in the cast and Abhishek Bachchan has been replaced by Saif Ali Khan in the film whereas Rani Mukerji will be reprising the role that she played in the original one.
If we are to go by the reports Saif Ali Khan had rejected the offer as he is going through a tough schedule but we now hear that he has finally given a nod for the film. Though there is no official confirmation about the same from anyone.
A quote in Deccan Chronicle explained about Abhishek’s career. It goes by: "Apart from Saif and Rani, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari Wagh have been roped in for the film. The film will actually continue from where the earlier one ended. R Madhavan was also approached to play the role that Abhishek Bachchan played in the original, but it doesn't seem that the dates worked out. Saif is now in the project, getting the Hum Tum team back together. Saif had won the National Award for Best Actor when he was paired with Rani in Hum Tum."
Currently, Saif Ali Khan is on a working spree for his upcoming film Tanaji: The Unsung Warrior which also stars Ajay Devgn and Kajol.
If the reports are true this might definitely hurt Abhishek Bachchan fans as this could have changed the tides of his career.
