Praising Akshay Kumar, the actor added, “I love him as an actor. I think what we have tried as much we could do on our own. Ofcourse the title is same, a few things will create nostalgia about the first movie but there are a lot of new things too, which I hope people will love. It’s a whole new dynamic world with what we have created with ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’. There will be comparison but I hope that ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ is also remembered as a unique movie.”
When director Anees Bazmee was asked if the sequel will feature Akshay and Vidya’s characters from the first part, the filmmaker had quipped, “Akshay Kumar is a great actor and we share a good friendship, Vidya and he did not fit in the script. It would have been profitable to work with them, but the script did not have any such opportunity. All characters are fresh except for Rajpal Yadav.”
‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ is slated for release on May 20, 2022.
