For the unversed, Bunty Aur Babli is a 2005 crime-comedy film where a couple goes on a crime spree to support their lavish lifestyle, before being arrested.

In a twisted tale of love, money, and crime, Vikram, who worked at a private firm and earned a decent ₹40,000 salary, had bought a flat and took a housing loan during his married life. However, after getting into a live-in relationship with Anuradha, he struggled to keep up with the financial demands of his swanky new lifestyle, and was left with no choice but to turn to a life of crime to pay off his debts.
