Producer of Kartik Aaryan’s ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ are opting for a theatrical release

The makers of Kartik Aaryan starrer are finally going to resume shooting and are planning for a theatrical release.

Kartik Aaryan will begin filming for ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ as soon as the Maharashtra government confirms relaxation covid-related relaxations. “We may not be able to shoot in a bio bubble, which is the current rule for shooting in Mumbai, as it’s difficult process,” says producer Murad Khetani. We will wait for Mumbai to achieve Level 2 status before planning the shoot. At the rate Mumbai is performing and Covid-19 numbers are decreasing, we could be at Level 2 within a week.”

The film’s Mumbai schedule, which might be the final one, will be shot on set. “Once things return to normalcy, we will be building a set in one of the studios, and we want to finish the shoot in one schedule, working according to the dates of the stars,” Khetani says.
Kartik will star with Kiara Advani, Tabu, and Rajpal Yadav in the film. It is a stand-alone sequel to Priyadarshan’s cult classic horror comedy ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa,’ which featured Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan in 2007. Anees Baazmee is directing the sequel.


The filming of ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ began in October 2019 and was set to be released in July 2020. Kartik had revealed on social media a few months ago that the film will be released on November 19, 2021. Khetani said of the film’s release date and platform, “We haven’t scheduled the release date, but ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2′ will release in theatres once the film is ready.”

Kartik has recently begun posting behind-the-scenes photographs and stills from the film’s set on his social media accounts. In March, he shared a humorous pic with Rajpal Yadav and wished his fans a Happy Holi. He’d even posted a funny photo of Tabu pretending to be holding a portable bio-bubble.
It remains to be seen if ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ will be released in theatres or via a hybrid OTT and theatrical release.
