Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani, and Tabu star in the second instalment of the hit comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 which is directed by Anees Bazmee. The film’s production began in Lucknow last year, but was suspended owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. The actors and crew did, however, rejoin after a year in March 2021. Anees shot the majority of the movie in Manali and Mumbai.
However, filming was once again halted after Kartik acquired the coronavirus, and then again owing to the Covid-19 second wave’s shutdown. As things begin to normalise, filmmakers are putting together schedules for their unfinished films.
Anees has also contacted Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 producers Bhushan Kumar and Murad Khetani about restarting the shoot in Mumbai, according to Pinkvilla, and this time the filmmaker wants to finish the remaining shot in one schedule. “We are working on the logistics and will know the exact dates in the next few days. But the film is almost ready and the remaining portions will be shot in one go,” the director told the entertainment portal.
Priyadarshan directed the 2007 film, which starred Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan in the lead roles, with Ameesha Patel, Shiney Ahuja, Paresh Rawal, Manoj Joshi, Asrani, and Rajpal Yadav in supporting roles. The Priyadarshan-directed film was a remake of the Malayalam film Manichitrathazhu, which was released in 1993.
