The Christmas window is empty after the team of Ranveer Singh's 83 decided to push its release to 2021. However, the talks are at a nascent stage. They will arrive at a decision in the coming weeks." The sequel also stars Gully Boy fame Siddhant Chaturvedi and newcomer Sharvari Wagh while Rani will be reprising her role whereas Saif will be filling in the spot of Abhishek (the OG Bunty)
