Saif plays the role of Rakesh aka Bunty in this comedy. He quietly put on several kilos to play the role of a railway ticket collector in the idyllic small town of Fursatgunj in this film.

Saif as Bunty has retired from being a conman and has settled into family life with Babli aka Vimmy, played by Rani.

Despite being in love with his wife and appreciating his family to the core, Rakesh is bored as hell. The slow life in a small town has impacted his fitness. He craves thrill, he craves the adrenaline rush he felt while pulling off incredible cons across India. He is stuck in a rut.

Saif says,


“Not a day goes by without Rakesh missing the thrill he felt when he was the legendary conman Bunty. Though he has kept his identity a secret and enjoys his marriage with Vimmy, he misses the action, misses strategizing for cons that became the talk of the nation. Suppressing who he truly is and wants to be, impacts his health.”


He adds,


“I had to put on several kilos and then lose it quickly because of my packed shooting schedule. Now, when I look back, I’m glad I went through the process because Rakesh aka the OG Bunty looks believable in the film. He is a family man, who has quit conning people. He has settled down. He is endearing, his struggles are real. He was a legend and now he is a nobody. He craves to be known and that’s what makes him disappointed about how his life has shaped up. He wants to feel important.”


A smart woman who pulled off incredible cons! Though she is happy in her marriage, she craves more, she craves the thrill and being the center of attention.


She was always into fashion and so, she decides to pursue that. Her fashion choices are loud, colourful, and happy because that’s what her personality is. I must say she relishes the fact that people in Fursatgunj look up to her.


People in this village are not exposed to fashion at all and Babli becomes the Fashion Queen of Fursatgunj!” OG Babli is bored being just a housewife in a small town. She knows she is talented, she is the Vimmy says,” Rani.

She is supportive of his wife’s efforts but not necessarily in agreement with her loud fashion choices! Bunty sartorial choices are OTT and eccentric but that’s how she expresses herself and stays the center of attention!
