The prolific writer-director Anees Bazmee has completed his new project Paagalpanti and is on to his next Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 — a sequel of sorts to the 2007 hit film Bhool Bhulaiyaa. The film in development will star Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani.
“We’ve shot a small portion in Mumbai and will now proceed to Jaipur as most of the film will be shot in Rajasthan. Quite a change from my last film, Paagalpanti, which was shot in London,” Anees says excitedly.
The director is all praise for his lead pair and shares, “Kartik and Kiara look terrific together — a fresh pair and that too a good looking one.”
So is Bhool Bhulaiya 2 a proper sequel to the first film? Anees clarifies, “Not really. This is a completely different story. Besides the title, we have taken two songs from the original — the title song and the Bengali song. The rest of the film is completely original.”
Addressing the reports that Akshay Kumar, who starred in the first film, would be making an appearance in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Anees states, “Akshay is a very big and very busy star. To justify his presence in a cameo is not possible. I don’t think we will be able to accommodate him. But I am sure he wishes us all the best.”
