MUMBAI: Director Anees Bazmee is all set to recreate the magic on the silver screen with Bhool Bhulaiyaa's sequel. While 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa' was a psychological thriller, Bazmee asks the audience not to expect the same in 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2' as it will be inclining towards a ghost story.
Stating the sequel as a "different tale", Bazmee said, "Bhool Bhulaiyaa (2007) was a psychological thriller, but the second outing is a ghost story. It does not take off from where the first part ended. It is a different tale, with a fresh set of actors."
The director also said that he did not want to keep this upcoming movie as the sequel to Akshay Kumar's hit 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa' and suggested a new title during the narration of the story. But then, he revealed that it was the decision of the makers who wanted to keep the franchise alive.
With the success of 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa', its sequel does have some high expectations. Regarding the same, Anees said, "We had to live up to the title, so there had to be some common elements. Bhool Bhulaiyaa is used to describe a maze, so the film has to be set in a sprawling haveli with several pathways."
Kartik Aaryan will be filling in the shoes of superstar Akshay Kumar and we have to see if he can live up to the audience's expectations. Kiara Advani will be playing the female lead in the movie. The first part directed by Priyadarshan enjoyed a massive commercial as well as critical success and we are definitely excited about what fun its sequel has in store for us.
'Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2' is slated to release on 31st July 2020.
