Kartik Aaryan is an actor par excellence and right from Pyaar Ka Punchnama to Pati Patni Aur Woh, Kartik has proved that he is indeed the Badshaah of monologues. Now as we speak, Kartik is busy with the promotions of Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal opposite Sara Ali Khan, and post this, Kartik will get busy with the shooting of the sequel to Bhool Bhulaiya, Dostana 2 and other films. Now we all know to fill in the shoes of Akshay Kumar is no mean task and for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Kartik Aaryan will be seen reprising a role that was performed by Akshay Kumar in the 2007 horror comedy.
“While the audience has been awaiting the second installment to Bhool Bhulaiyaa, even I was eagerly waiting to make one for the longest time. However, we wanted to lock in the right script, one which was equally engaging and enticing as the first one. Finally, after a long wait of 11 years, Murad Bhai came to me with a script, which I felt was worthy of taking Bhool Bhulaiyaa forward as a franchise. I am thrilled to announce Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 in association with Murad Bhai, together with whom we delivered the box-office hit Kabir Singh. The project will be helmed by Anees Bhai,” Bhushan Kumar said in a statement.
Director Anees Bazmee is looking forward to working with Kartik. He said, “I am excited to once again work with Bhushanji and Murad Bhai. Having worked with them on separate projects in the past I’m now looking forward to collaborating with them on Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. I am also excited to work with Kartik. He is a very talented actor and has a great part in the film.”
I’m looking forward to collaborating with Bhushanji again. Bhool Bhulaiyaa has always been one of my favourite comedic supernatural thriller film and now being part of BB2 makes me happy, especially because I’ve been a big fan of Akshay Kumar sir and it’s a great responsibility to take his franchise forward. It’s a hilarious script and Anees sir has taken it to another level. I’m also looking forward to working with Murad bhai,” Kartik said in a statement.
