‘We are waiting for Kartik Aaryan to test negative,’ says Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 director Anees Bazmee

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is directed by Anees Bazmee and stars Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani in the lead roles.


The shooting of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was suspended again this month when its leading man Kartik Aaryan was tested positive for COVID-19. Now, Kartik is well on the way to recovery and spending his time watching a whole lot of movies and enjoying his mother’s cooking

Director Anees Bazmee is not worried at all. “We have already shot more than 60 percent of the film. Shooting stopped in Lucknow in March 2020 and the lockdown followed .But we made up for lost time when we resumed shooting. And now Kartik’s COVID-19 which came as a shock is not a big problem. Kartik is a very fast worker. He picks up his lines in minutes. We will be back on track as soon as he re-joins us. We are all waiting for him.”

Anees recalls to the time when he first saw Kartik on screen. “I had full faith in him from his first film. When I saw Pyaar Ka Punchnama I knew he was going to make it really big. I wanted to work with him then only. But everything takes its time in life. I am glad we are working on Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 together. His comic timing is superb.”

He adds, “He is a pleasure to work with. Always on time, always professional, never any tantrums. Kartik has a smile for everyone. Having him on the set brings very pleasant vibes into the process of shooting. We need that positivity right now.”
