The much-awaited crime comedy Bunty Aur Babli 2 is releasing in theatres today, November 19, providing a respite to ardent franchise fans, which are set to flock theatres. The franchise’s second installment will shed light on the hilariously intense face-off between the OG Bunty and Babli, essayed by Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji, and the newbie con couple Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari. The con couples will embark on proving their mettle, with Pankaj Tripathi’s cop character adding spice to their drama.
The film, whose teaser, trailers, and tracks have already sparked curiosity among the audience, will soon be streaming digitally for those who skipped the considerable screen experience. Here’s all you need to know about the digital premiere of Bunty Aur Babli 2.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 OTT release date
Coming as the sequel to the 2005 commercial hit of the same name, the comedy-drama showcases Vimmi and Rakesh (Rani and Saif), the original con couple who get embroiled in the series of twist ridden events after finding out that the new con couple is using their name to loot people. After marking its theatrical release on Friday, November 19, it will premiere on the OTT platform Amazon Prime Video on December 18, 2021. This gives the film a one-month slot to deliver results on the big screen, post which a wider audience will witness the magic in the comfort of their homes.
YRF’s collaboration with the streaming giant comes as a part of the exclusive licensing deal, which lets users stream the movies just four weeks after their theatrical run, reaching over 240 countries worldwide. Along with the Saif Ali Khan-Rani Mukerji starrer, films like Prithviraj, Shamshera, and Jayeshbhai Jordaar are also a part of this deal.
