Kartik Aaryan is all set to step into the humongous shoes of Akshay Kumar as he takes on the sequel to his 2007 horror-comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 will be directed by Anees Bazmee and will have Kartik and Kiara Advani in the lead. The film is a standalone sequel of the 2007 hit Bhool Bhulaiyaa, which starred Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan and was directed by Priyadarshan.
Now, the makers have released the film's release date. The edge-of-the-seat comedy psychological thriller starring Kartik, Tabu and Kiara will release in theatres on November 19, 2021.
The film is written by Farhad Samji and Aakash Kaushik. The production on the horror comedy was affected in March last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The team was filming in Lucknow days before the nationwide lockdown was announced.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is produced by Bhushan Kumar and Murad Khetani. The film was expected to hit the screens on July 31, 2020. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it got postponed. The shooting, that was earlier slated to be completed by March, will now reportedly complete by year end.
