What a better way to beat our Monday Blues! As Kartik Aaryan treated us with a few first look posters from Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, featuring himself. As it was earlier reported that Kartik would be stepping into Akshay Kumar's shoes for the sequel of Bhool Bhulaiyaa, well, it is finally happening and the posters for the same has been released just a few minutes ago. Kartik is on fire!
In the poster, Kartik is seen in a sadhu avatar with a skeleton hand in his hand. The look is quite similar to which Akshay Kumar had donned in the first poster of Bhool Bhulaiyaa in 2007. In another poster, Aaryan is seen posing with a bunch of skeletons, like it's no big deal. The tagline on the poster reads, "13 saal baad... The Haunting comedy returns." Well, going by the quirky posters, we can't wait to see Kartik in this role, knowing the Akki was brilliant in it. Check out the posters below:
A source close to the makers told Mumbai Mirror, “While the makers have locked the idea, the script is still to be finalised. But the idea was shared with Kartik who liked it and has agreed to take the franchise forward with the story set in a metropolis.”
Reports also suggest that the makers are more focused to write their plot around horror comedy since Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starter Stree spelled its magic. The source added, "The director will be locked in a few days, following which they will decide on the leading lady and the rest of the cast. Bhushan always wanted to continue with 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa' and is invested in the film. He is looking to start filming by the year-end," added the source.
Producer Bhushan Kumar officially revealed Kartik’s first look from the film and also announced that director Anees Bazmee has come on board to helm the film. Further, Murad Khetani of Cine 1 Studios and Krishan Kumar will be co-producing the film with Kumar. The second instalment will be helmed by Anees Bazmee, unlike the first one which was directed by Priyadarshan.
