Fans have been incredibly excited since the announcement of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3. When the film's lead actor, Kartik Aaryan, revealed last week that Vidya Balan's Og Manjulika, one of the most adored and iconic characters, will be returning, the enthusiasm intensified. The actor has now tempted us revealing details of the movie's lead lady in a partially visible picture.

Triptii Dimri to star opposite Kartik Aaryan in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3?

Kartik posted a photo of the movie's lead actress on social media, featuring her smiling alone against a spooky background of candles, a lock, and an antique lamp. The picture, though, is undoubtedly of Triptii Dimri, who recently won her over with her infectious smile and performance in the Ranbir Kapoor film Animal.

Kartik invites his fans to guess again and says, "Kaafi galat answers aa rahe hain 😂 Vapas guess kijiye," in a another post that features the other half of the picture. Now that we can see the actress's eyes, we can be certain that the person he is making us all guess is none other than Triptii Dimri. 

In another post, the Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 actor finally revealed the full face of the actress and yes! it's Triptii. Take a look at his post here:

'OG Manjulika' Vidya Balan roped in for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3

Earlier, while announcing Vidya Balan's comeback in the third installment of the franchise, Kartik Aaryan and Vidya Balan made a joint Instagram post and shared a video that had a video compilation of scenes from the 2007 film and the 2022 release of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, the sequel. In the video, Kartik can be seen as Rooh Baba while Vidya Balan danced to the song "Aami Je Tomar" as Manjulika.

“And its happening (fire emoticon) Og Manjulika is coming back to the world of Bhool Bhulaiyaa. Super thrilled to welcome @balanvidya (red heart emoticon). This Diwali is going to be crackling #BhoolBhulaiyaa3,” read the caption of Kartik's post.

As soon as it was announced that Vidya was coming back with her character Manjulike, fans were quick to trend this news all over social media out of excitement. It will be interesting to watch a new on-screen couple of Kartik and Triptii on the big screens, given that both the actors enjoy a huge fan following. With her performance in Animal, she has won over the audiences and hence all eyes are currently on her and her upcoming project. With Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3, which is a successful franchise, the Laila Majnu actress seems to impress us once again.
