Speaking about why Kartik Aaryan was signed for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, director Anees Bazmee says that he felt the young actor was suited for the role
Kartik Aaryan fits into every role he tries. And he is, in fact, trying out a variety of them. His latest take at a completely different character is for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Recently, the director of this upcoming flick talked about Kartik’s role and why he is the perfect fit for it.
Talking for the first time that the happening-hero Kartik Aaryan is indeed the lead in the sequel to the 2007 horror-comedy hit Bhool Bhulaiyaa. Director Anees Bazmee says,
“We’ve finalized Kartik for the lead in the Bhool Bhulaiyaa sequel. I feel he has a tremendous aptitude for comedy, and can also look vulnerable and almost childlike on screen, just like Akshay Kumar.”
The first look poster of the sequel was released recently and Kartik Aaryan is seen sporting a similar look as that of Akshay Kumar
“I am yet to sit down with my producers Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani and Krishan Kumar to decide on the rest of the cast and crew. But I can tell you this: My Bhool Bhulaiyaa would be done in my style,” Anees further added.
But, Akshay Kumar, who was the lead in the original film, will not appear in the sequel. In fact, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is not connected to the first film at all! One hears the original title, still popular among moviegoers, is being revived for easy-recall value. Otherwise, everything in the sequel, including the actors, technicians, and musicians would be different.
While the original Bhool Bhulaiyaa was a remake of the Malayalam film Manichitrathazhu, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 will be an original script
‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ is set to hit the screens on July 31st, 2020 and is produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar under the banner of T-Series.
