A few days back, Twitterverse were in for a happy surprise when the makers of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 revealed that Kartik Aaryan will be seen as the lead actor in the sequel to the 2007 film Bhool Bhulaiyaa. While Kartik Aaryan won hearts in the first look of the film, the most anticipated question that followed was whether or not Akshay Kumar will be seen in the sequel because admittedly, whenever we talk about Bhool Bhulaiyaa, we are only reminded of Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan.
Now during an interview, Anees Bazmee, who will be headlining the sequel opened up on the possibility of Akshay Kumar to feature in the sequel. While of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is being helmed by Anees, it is written by Farhad Samji and Akash Kaushik, and the director says that the film is “being designed such that the superstar can be included in a special appearance.” In an interview, Annes, who has worked with Akshay Kumar in various films said that he would be more than happy to have Akshay sir in the film since they share a cordial relationship. “We haven’t completed the script yet. There is an attempt to write a character that suits him even as the narrative stays in sync with the first film. I hope he likes the character and agrees to do it,” says Bazmee. Not just this, Anees revealed that Kartik Aaryan is looking forward to collaborate with Akshay Kumar in the sequel, and he will be the happiest if Kumar comes on board. “Kartik will be the happiest if Akshay says yes as he is a big fan. [His presence] will also widen the film’s reach,” said Anees.
While the original film, starring Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan, was directed by Priyadarshan, the sequel will be directed by Anees Bazmee and the film will hit the screens on July 31, 2020 and is set to clash at the box office with Ranbir Kapoor’s Shamshera and RRR. In the poster of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Kartik Aaryan is seen wearing saffron kurta pyjamas with a trishul in his hand and soon after the poster was dropped online, netizens were excited for the film.
