Bhool Bhulaiyaa, originally helmed by Priyadarshan, was based on the Tamil film Chandramukhi (2015) with Rajnikanth in the lead. Chandramukhi too, was a remake of the Malyalam film Manichitrathazhu (1993). The Aneez Bazmee sequel is targeting to wrap up the movie by March.
While fans had suspected and hoped that Akshay Kumar will make a special appearance or a cameo in the sequel, there has been no official confirmation about the same. Directed by Anees Bazmee and written by Farhad Samji and Aakash Kaushik, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is set to release on July 31 next year.
Meanwhile, Kartik is having a dream run in his acting career with big movies in his pocket. The actor has also been roped in by Karan Johar for Dostana 2. Also, he will be seen in Imtiaz Ali’s romance drama, also starring Sara Ali Khan and is also shooting for Pati Patni Aur Woh with Ananya Panday and Bhumi Pednekar.
