The 2007 horror-comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa is set for a sequel starring Kartik Aaryan in the lead role. Latest reports suggest that Akshay Kumar will also be seen in a pivotal role in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2.
Ever since the news of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 broke out, the entire nation has been waiting to know whether or not we will get a glimpse of superstar Akshay Kumar in the film.
Putting all the rumours to rest, the makers have confirmed that Akshay Kumar will definitely be a part of the sequel ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’. The 2007 ‘Bhool Bhulaiya’ had Khiladi Kumar in the lead role of Dr Aditya Srivastav along with Vidya Balan and Shiny Ahuja.
The last film was directed by Priyadarshan but the sequel will have Anees Bazmee as the Director. In Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Akshay will be seen reprising his character from the last film.
It will be a cameo appearance as Kartik Aaryan will be essaying the lead role. The reports state that Akshay and Kartik are about very excited about the film and can’t wait for the shooting to begin.
Having said that, Akshay Kumar’s involvement will only be limited as the film is being produced by Bhushan Kumar from T-Series. Akshay seems to be in a cold war with the banner ever since he walked out of Gulshan Kumar biopic, Moghul.
On the work front, Kartik Aaryan will be seen in Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Love Aaj Kal 2’, ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh, and ‘Dostana 2’.He was last seen in ‘Luka Chuppi’ which was a big hit at the box office.
Akshay, on the other hand, has three releases in the second half of 2019. He has Mission Mangal (15 Aug 2019), Housefull 4 (Diwali) and Good News (26 Dec 2019) this year.
Next year, he will be seen in Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi and Laxmmi Bomb, an official Hindi remake of Tamil horror-comedy film, Kanchana.
