It’s raining sequels in Bollywood these days and the latest film to join the band wagon is Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan starrer Bhool Bhulaiyaa. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the 2007 horror-comedy will get a part 2 soon as the producer of the first film, Bhushan Kumar, has green-lit a sequel.
A source close to the development told the daily, “Bhushan wanted to make a part 2 of Bhool Bhulaiyaa for a while now and has cracked an idea with Farhad Samji, who will be writing and directing the film. It is in the development stage and will feature a fresh cast. Once the final script is locked, the team will kick off casting and other pre-production formalities.”
Bhushan Kumar’s production house T-Series has registered the title Bhool Bhulaiyaa and will soon start working on the project.
Farhad Samji, who is directing the film, is presently busy with Akshay Kumar starrer Housefull 4. He has previously directed Entertainment (2014) and Housefull 3 (2016) with his writer-brother Sajid. The director has a number of films in his kitty this year. The director has written Varun Dawan and Sara Ali Khan’s Coolie No. 1 remake, Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi, Ahmed Khan’s Baaghi 3 and Aksay Kumar’s Laxmi Bomb.
Apart from Bhool Bhulaiya 2, the producer is already remaking some of the classics of the past. The production house is remkaing BR Chopra’s 1978 drama Pati Patni Aur Woh starring Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday and Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1975 comedy Chupke Chupke, in which Rajkummar Rao will reprise Dharmendra’s role.
