Fans had been excited ever since it was announced that handsome hunk Kartik Aaryan will be playing the titular role in the sequel of the 2007 blockbuster horror-comedy movie Bhool Bhulaiyaa. The actor had started shooting for the same last year but it was met with an abrupt halt due to the first wave of COVID-19. The actor had then resumed shooting for the movie earlier this year but once again his testing positive for the virus coupled with the COVID-19 second wave acted as an obstacle in the shooting of the movie. Now as the shooting restrictions are easing again, director Anees Bazmee who will be directing the film spoke on its remaining schedule.
Anees revealed to Pinkvilla about the same wherein he stated that now with them having permissions to shoot, they will be sitting down and planning the schedule for the same, this week.

Anees concluded by stating that Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is almost ready and that only a few portions of the movie are remaining to be shot. The movie is scheduled to release in November 2021.
The film will also star Kiara Advani, Tabu and Rajpal Yadav in the lead roles. According to reports, Tabu will reprise the role of Vidya Balan's in the previous movie of a woman possessed by a spirit.
