‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’, starring Kartik Aaryan in the elad role, is all set to release on July 31 next year, the makers announced on Monday.

Producer Bhushan Kumar took to Twitter to share the news.

“Finally after a long wait, excited to officially announce the haunting comedy #BhoolBhulaiyaa2 with a stellar team. This project has been in the works for a while and I’m really looking forward to it. In cinemas on July 31, 2020. More details soon,” Kumar tweeted.

He also shared two posters from the film with the tagline: “The Haunting Comedy Returns”.

Aaryan said he is excited to be a part of the film.

“‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ has always been one of my favourite comedy-supernatural thriller films and now being part of ‘BB2’ makes me really happy, especially because I’ve been a big fan of Akshay Kumar sir and it’s a great responsibility to take his ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ franchise forward. It’s a hilarious script and Anees sir has taken it on another level,” the actor said.

He also shared a still from the film on Instagram.

“Ghostbuster is all set to enter. Hare Ram Hare Ram Hare Krishna Hare Ram,” he captioned the photo.

Co-produced by Murad Khetani and Krishan Kumar, Anees Bazmi is attached to direct.

Bazmi said he is happy to collaborate with Kumar and Khetani again.

“Having worked with Bhushanji and Murad bhai on separate projects in the past, I’m now looking forward to collaborating with them on ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’. I am also excited to work with Kartik. He is a very talented actor and has a great part in the film,” the director said.

The script has been penned by Farhad Samji and Aakash Kaushik.

‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’, which released in 2007, starred Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan and Shiney Ahuja. The film was the official Hindi remake of the 1993 Malayalam comedy psychological thriller, ‘Manichitrathazhu’.
