Kartik Aaryan To Replace Akshay Kumar In Bhool Bhulaiya Sequel?
Post the success of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Kartik Aaryan is on a professional high. The actor has meaty projects in his kitty and is slowly becoming a force to reckon with. Now, a Koimoi report states that he will be replacing Akshay Kumar in the second part of the popular horror comedy Bhool Bhulaiya. Recently, a sequel to the hit film was announced with the script being written by Farhad Samji.

A source close to the leading daily says, “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.” Several names were in the running for the lead role including Ayushmann Khurrana, Vicky Kaushal and Rajkummar Rao. But, it seems like Kartik will win the race. The source adds, “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.”

Speaking of Kartik’s current projects, he has been shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal sequel with Sara Ali Khan. Post that, he will be seen in the remake of Pati Patni Aur Woh that will also star Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday in lead roles. The actor was last seen in Luka Chuppi which performed very well at the box-office.
