It narrates the tale of one of India’s unsung heroes, obviously played by Kumar. His patriotic narratives began from Airlift and continued till Mission Mangal. This film promises to be a worthy addition to the repertoire.

In 2005, Shaad Ali made Bunty Aur Babli, a fun, frothy con-comedy about two people who lie, cheat, steal for a living that soon transforms into joy. Rani Mukerji and Abhishek Bachchan shared a crackling chemistry and displayed an impressive knack for physical comedy and sharp timing. 16 years later, Mukerji returns as the con-woman sans Bachchan. This time, she gets the company of her Hum Tum co-star Saif Ali Khan. They get the company of Siddhart Chaturvedi and Sharvari Wagh. Here’s when this will come out:
This con-edy should deliver as much boisterousness as the prequel did. The trump card of the earlier film was the unforgettable track- Kajra Re. What surprise awaits us this time? We’ll find out on April 23!
