Kiara Advani has been cast opposite Kartik Aaryan in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. The film is the sequel to 2007’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa, which starred Akshay Kumar in the main role. Aaryan takes over as the leading man in the Anees Bazmee directed sequel.
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!”
Bazmee said, “I always look forward to working with Gen-Z actors, this is my first collaboration with Kartik and Kiara. I am sure they will bring new energy to the table, hoping to have a blast.”
Priyadarshan helmed the Akshay Kumar starrer in 2007. Bhool Bhulaiyaa was an official remake of the Mohanlal and Shobana starrer 1993 Malayalam film Manichitrathazhu.
