‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’: Not September, Anees Bazmee to resume shooting of the Kartik Aaryan starrer by year-end
Kartik Aaryan was shooting for the much-awaited second instalment of ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ when the lockdown was announced. Earlier, Anees Bazmee had stated that they might resume the shoot in September. Now, the director has pushed it to the year-end. Talking to a news portal, Anees reportedly said that since they have already filmed a few portions in Lucknow, it makes sense to shoot there to maintain continuity. He added that they intend to resume work by the year-end, with the schedule running into early 2021. He also hopes that the vaccine arrives soon as it’ll make matters easier. The report also mentioned that around 35 days of shoot remains for the film.
Elaborating more, the filmmaker added that the unit of their Lucknow schedule comprised 400 people. It will be a tough task to shoot with one-third of the strength. He also stated that they have three to four cameras, with four people assigned for each. Then, there are light men, actors’ staff and crew members from other departments.
Kartik Aaryan will be seen stepping into the shoes of Akshay Kumar in the movie. However, the filmmaker had earlier confirmed that the film is not a sequel to the original film but is just another film with a different story in the same franchise.
