Earlier, reports suggested that the makers are more focused to write their plot around horror comedy since Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starter Stree spelled it's 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.
When the reports of the same had started doing the rounds, a source had revealed, "Kartik has been approached for the film as well and the talks are in the final stages. It is a matter of time before a formal announcement comes in. However, it is Kartik who has, in all likelihood, made the cut. With the super success of Luka Chuppi and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety behind him, he is hot favorite amongst the youngsters. Director Farhad Samji has some very interesting plans for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 in order to cater to the youth and family audiences. Kartik’s appeal in this segment really helps.”
Producer Bhushan Kumar officially, the 2nd instalment will
be helmed by Anees Bazmee, unlike the first one, which was directed by
Priyadarshan. Murad Khetani of Cine 1 Studios and Krishan Kumar will be
co-producing the film with Kumar.
