The makers of Bunty Aur Babli 2 have decided to pay homage to the first film by keeping the same logo for the sequel. Bunty Aur Babli 2 is being directed by debutant Varun V. Sharma, who has worked as an assistant director in Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. Talking about Bunty Aur Babli 2, Varun said the film has a "huge nostalgia value attached to it," reported news agency IANS.
"For whole of India, Bunty Aur Babli is and will always be part of cinema that we watched while growing up. It is truly a much loved film. When we were designing the logo of Bunty Aur Babli 2, we were certain that we will keep the original logo as it pays perfect homage to the first film that is part of India's pop culture history. I'm guessing this move will be much loved by cine-lovers as it evokes a big sense of nostalgia," he was quoted as saying by IANS.
Other than Bunty Aur Babli 2, Rani Mukerji and Saif Ali Khan have worked together in films such as Hum Tum, Ta Ra Rum Pum and Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic.
Produced by Aditya Chopra, the shooting schedule of the film has begun already.
