Mumbai: The release date of Rani Mukerji and Saif Ali Khan starrer Bunty Aur Babli 2 has been postponed owing to the fresh rise in Covid-19 cases.
The film was earlier slated to hit theatres on April 23. A new release date for the film is yet to be announced.
Informing about the same, trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Thursday: “#BreakingNews: #BuntyAurBabli2 – which was scheduled to release in *cinemas* on 23 April 2021 – has been postponed… #YRF will announce the new release date later. #SaifAliKhan, #RaniMukerji, #SiddhantChaturvedi #Sharvari.”
