12 years ago, when Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan starrer Bhool Bhulaiyaa first released, it left people pleasantly surprised and spooked.
And now horror and comedy are all set to make a return, as the first look for Bhool Bhulaiyaa2 just released. This time, it looks like Kartik Aaryan is the ‘holy spirit’ or at least the one catching it!
Kartik Aaryan shared the images from the movie on his Instagram handle, and fashioned himself as a ‘ghostbuster’.
While the original was directed by Priyadarshan, the sequel will be directed by Anees Bazmee. No announcement has yet been made about the remaining starcast.

Excited to once again work with @itsBhushanKumar, @MuradKhetani @ashwinvarde #KrishanKumar on #BhoolBhulaiyaa2 ! @TheAaryanKartik let’s begin to solve the puzzle 😉 Written by @farhad_samji & #AakashKaushik! @BhoolBhulaiyaa2 @TSeries @Cine1Studios pic.twitter.com/nHAVs577KF
However, for Twitterati, the biggest question remains – can Kartik Aaryan really replace Akshay Kumar as the eccentric ‘ghostbuster’?

Let’s wait for the movie to shape up, atleast they’re coming up with sequel not remake. Par kuchh bhi ho Akshay Kumar legend ka takkar nhi hai, 13 saal k baad bhi or aane waale saalon m bhi. #BhoolBhulaiyaa2 pic.twitter.com/czvTBx2hn6— Manoj Mansha Roopani (@RoopaniManoj) August 19, 2019
Hope Kartik Aryan justifies role of Akshay Kumar . If there will be Akshay’s extended cameo in film it will make audience feel original magic. @akshaykumar #BhoolBhulaiyaa2— Naman Gupta (@NamanGu540) August 19, 2019

Omg is #BhoolBhulaiyaa2 for real? NO WAY. Part 1 was gold. I remember buying the CD as soon as it released and watching it 11 times after that. Funny only because of @akshaykumar who became my favorite actor after that performace. I hope they all get haunted by Monjolika.— Bhakti Chavda (@BhaktiPChavda) August 19, 2019
The first film combined elements of horror and comedy to ultimately present an unusual thriller. Hopefully, this sequel does not follow the tradition of Bollywood sequels, but presents a story just as exciting as the original one. The film is currently set for July 2020 release.
