The first installment of Bunty Aur Babli released in 2005. It starred Rani Mukerji along with Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan in lead roles. The film managed to garner accolades from the critics and the audience. Reportedly, Abhishek Bachchan was again the first choice for the sequel but things did not take a good turn between the production house and him.
