After much speculations, Kiara Advani has been roped in as the female lead opposite Kartik Aaryan in horror-comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. This will be the second back to back horror genre movie for Kiara. Before Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, the actress signed Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb which is based on the same subject.
Kiara on Saturday took to her Instagram to confirm the news. While sharing a glamorous picture of herself, she wrote, ''Teri Aankhen Bhool Bhulaiyaa excited to share with you! #BhoolBhulaiyaa2 Can’t wait to begin this journey with @kartikaaryan @aneesbazmee @cine1studios @tseries.official @muradkhetani @its_bhushankumar.''
Talking about the film, Kiara said in a statement, ''Bhool Bhulaiyaa was the first ever horror film that I watched. Being a huge fan of the first one, It’s super exciting to get the opportunity to be a part of the franchise. It’s my first time being directed by Anees sir and I’m looking forward to the experience. It’s being produced by the makers of my most special film so it feels like home working with Cine1 and T-Series again. Kartik and I are working together for the first time, can’t wait to begin this journey so we can bring the film to you soon!''
According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the film will go on floors in October. ''The film is expected to go on the floors in October. It is currently in the pre-production stage. Reading sessions will begin closer to the first schedule,'' the source said.
Kartik had earlier said that he is excited to be a part of the film. ''Bhool Bhulaiyaa has always been one of my favourite comedy-supernatural thriller films and now being part of BB2 makes me really happy, especially because I’ve been a big fan of Akshay Kumar sir and it’s a great responsibility to take his Bhool Bhulaiyaa franchise forward. It’s a hilarious script and Anees sir has taken it on another level,'' the actor had said.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, a sequel to Akshay Kumar’s hit 2007 horror comedy, will hit the screens on 31st July, 2020.
