Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 brought the laughs and scares it promised, to the big screen on Friday. The film, which stars Kartik Aaryan, is touted to be a standalone sequel to Akshay Kumar’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa (2007). Aaryan recently opened up about comparisons between his film and the original.
In a conversation with ETimes, the actor talked about how he didn't think that people would draw comparisons between his film and the original. Saying that he himself did not think about the comparisons between the two films, Aaryan revealed that he had treated Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 as ‘a completely new film’ ever since he came on board for it. “I think more than pressure, it’s something which I feel when everyone will watch the film, they’d realise it’s a completely different film,” he said.
The actor also talked about how he felt like a ‘superhero’ when he was in costume and how he and Kiara Advani had formed a close bond during filming. Revealing that the duo had spent time with each other for more than two years, Aaryan added that they both were able to bring their best in the film.
The original Hindi film was directed by Priyadarshan and was a remake of the 1993 Malayalam film, Manichitrathazhu. Bhool Bhulaiyaa,which starred Akshay Kumar, Ameesha Patel, Shiney Ahuja and Vidya Balan, can be streamed on Disney+Hotstar.
In addition to Aaryan and Advani, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 also features Tabu, Rajpal Yadav and Sanjay Mishra in pivotal roles. Anees Bazmee has directed the film.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is now playing in theatres, and the film will be available for streaming on Netflix after its theatrical run.
