The hit comedy thriller Bhool Bhulaiyaa (2007) that featured none other than Akshay Kumar in the lead will be coming back with its sequel. As per reports in May, a sequel of the film was certainly on the cards and Farhad Samji who is directing Housefull 4 currently would be developing the film and directing it as well. However, at that time the cast of Bhool Bhuliayaa 2 was undecided with the makers, stating that they would consider casting once the film shapes up a little more. Now we hear that three leading names, Vicky Kaushal, Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao have been shortlisted for the lead role in the film.
Commenting on the same, a source adds that the script of the film is almost done and thus to not waste time, the makers have begun with the casting process and there will be more follow ups, screen tests, look tests and then either one of the three will be cast in the lead role of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. The source concluded by saying that Vicky Kaushal, Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao, each of them had their share of success at the box office, and have proved that they have what it takes to feature in a comedy. Hence, now it is going to be a tough call for the makers since each of the three have their own strengths.
While there is no official confirmation, fans will be eagerly waiting to know who bags the lead role in the sequel of the 2007 release.
