The Mumbai schedule of the film, which could be the final one will be shot on set. Khetani adds, “We will be building a set in one of the studios once things return to normalcy and we intend to complete the shoot in one schedule, working according the dates of the stars.”
The film’s cast will feature Kartik along with Kiara Advani, Tabu and Rajpal Yadav. It is a standalone sequel to Priyadarshan’s 2007 cult classic horror comedy ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ that starred Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan. The sequel is being directed By Anees Baazmee.
The shooting of ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ began in October 2019 and the film was scheduled to release in July 2020. A few months ago, Kartik had announced on social media that the film could release on November 19, 2021. Speaking about the plans for the film’s release date and platform, Khetani says, “We haven’t planned the release date but ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ will release in cinemas whenever the film is ready.”
Kartik has recently been sharing behind-the-scenes photos as well as stills from the set of the film on his social media handles. He had even posted a funny photo with Rajpal Yadav in March and wished his followers a Happy Holi. He had even shared an amusing photo of Tabu claiming that she was carrying around a portable bio-bubble.
Whether ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ releases in theatres or will opt for a hybrid OTT and theatrical release is to be seen.
