Kartik Aaryan seems like the top favourite for film reboots. The budding star recently wrapped up shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Love Aaj Kal 2’ that features him and Sara Ali Khan in lead roles. Last month, he was also trending after being roped in for Karan Johar’s sequel to ‘Dostana’. The never-ending list also entails Kartik starring in the remake of ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh' alongside Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Pandey. Hence, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the 28-year-old is being eyed for yet another follow-up movie. If recent reports are to be believed, he is in talks to star in the second installment of Akshay Kumar’s horror comedy ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’.
Speaking about ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’, an insider confirmed that Kartik will play the lead in the film. The source said, “While the makers have locked the idea, the script is yet to be finalised. But the idea was shared with Kartik who liked it and has agreed to take the franchise forward with the story set in a metropolis." We feel like Kartik will do complete justice to Kumar’s role!
However, the producers of the franchise are still in search for a suitable director and some other team members. They are eager for the sequel to hit floors by the end of this year. “The director will be locked in a few days, following which they will decide on the leading lady and the rest of the cast. Bhushan (Kumar) always wanted to continue with ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’. He is looking to start filming by the year-end,” the source added. ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ narrates the story of an NRI (Akshay) and his wife, who decide to stay in his ancestral home, paying no heed to the warnings about ghosts. Soon, inexplicable occurrences result in him ringing up a psychiatrist to help solve the mystery.
