Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Kabir Singh’ also performed amazingly well at the box office despite facing a few negative reviews.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, producers Bhushan Kumar and Murad Khetani were asked about the films that should be turned into franchises. Bhushan said that ‘Kabir Singh’ can definitely be spun into a franchise. He added that it’s an iconic character and can be taken into a second part. To this, Murad added that the character is quite popular. They also confirmed that they are taking the ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ franchise forward. They said that there is enough scope in the premise and they will announce more details at the right time.
Meanwhile, ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ is a sequel to Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan‘s 2007 release ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’. The first film was directed by Priyadarshan. On the other hand, Shahid’s ‘Kabir Singh’ was a remake of the Telugu film ‘Arjun Reddy’. It was directed by the same director, Sandeep Reddy Vanga.
