Rani Mukherji had no clue that she would get to reprise her character Babli. In an exclusive chat with IANS, Rani expressed her happiness in playing the character in the sequel Bunty Aur Babli 2 after 15 years.
She told IANS, “Bunty Aur Babli 2′ script when it came to me, It was quite a pleasant surprise for me because I never knew that we would ever be able to do a sequel of ‘Bunty Aur Babli 1’, there were talks about this film right from the start when we released ‘Bunty Aur Babli 1’ but the script could never be cracked all these years, finally after so many years when I was approached with the script I was just so ecstatic to be able to reprise the same character which I did more than 15 years back.”
She continued, “She is somebody who I would personally like to be friends with. I think she has a zest for life and believes in living life to the fullest and is very positive about her own life and her surroundings.”
Rani said that her character Babli is indeed special for her. Stating the reason, she said, “she is somebody who never takes anything to heart and she overcomes difficult times with a lot of positivity and enthusiasm. I think there is something to learn from her character, even as a person I think we need more Babli’s in the world”
Bunty Aur Babli starring Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukherji, Siddhant Chaturvedi and debutant Sharvari under the banner Yash Raj Films releases on November 19.
