After much speculation, Bhushan Kumar has finally confirmed that he is making Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 under his banner T-Series and Murad Khetani's Cine 1 studios with Kartik Aaryan in the lead. Needless to say, the posters have already gotten fans excited as Kartik will be stepping into Akshay Kumar's shoes.
The posters are quite a nostalgic trip down the memory lane as they feature Kartik in the avatar of a ghost buster. He is seen donning a bunch of rudraksh mala, a bandana on his forehead, a pair of shades and dressed up in the saffron attire of a quintessential sadhu.
Here are the first posters of #BhoolBhulaiyaa2 ft. @kartikaaryan. Directed by @aneesbazmee, it is produced by @bhushankumar, @muradkhetani & #KrishanKumar. The film is slated to release on July 31, 2020. @tseries.official @cine1studios @farhadsamji #AakashKaushik . . . #KartikAaryan #posters #actor #actors #bollywood #instabollywood #bollywoodactors #bollywoodstyle #latest #bollywoodlatest #bollywoodupdate #bollywoodactor #bollywoodnews #boxofficeindia
Confirming the development, Bhushan said, “While the audience has been waiting for the second instalment 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."
Sharing Kumar’s excitement, Murad said, “I am excited to collaborate with Bhushan Kumar and T-Series after our hugely successful Kabir Singh. I remember when Bhool Bhulaiyaa was released, it had created a crazy buzz. With Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 we are hoping to once again create a similar impact. We have roped in the extremely talented Kartik Aaryan for the lead role and Anees bhai, with whom I worked with last in Mubarakan, will be directing the film. We can’t wait for the film to start rolling.”
Kartik, who is collaborating for the third time with T-Series is equally excited about being a part of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Speaking about it, an excited Kartik said, “I'm excited to collaborate with Bhushanji for the third time. Bhool Bhulaiyaa has always been one of my favourite comedy- supernatural thriller films and now being part of BB2 makes me really happy, especially because I've been a big fan of Akshay Kumar sir and it's a great responsibility to take his Bhool Bhulaiyaafranchise forward. It's a hilarious script and Anees sir has taken it on another level. I'm also looking forward to working with Murad bhai."
Film's director Anees Bazmee is also thrilled to once again associate with Bhushan and Murad. He has worked with them on different occasions in the past. "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."
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani and Krishan Kumar under the banner of T-Series and Cine 1 studios. The horror-comedy is written by Farhad Samji and Aakash Kaushik. It is slated for a July 31, 2020 release.
