With the massive success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Kartik Aaryan ruled the box office in 2022. Though a section of moviegoers was sceptical considering that the first instalment featured Akshay Kumar in the lead, the film did a good business. And, now, the makers are all set to return to the big screen with the third part in 2025, and producer Bhusan Kumar has confirmed the same!
It is confirmed! Kartik Aaryan to headline Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3; producer Bhushan Kumar gives shooting updates
In an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla, the producer asserted, “We are definitely making Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3 with Kartik Aaryan. We are right in the process of figuring out the gap that we need between part 2 and part 3. The expectations are sky high and we are now thinking about how to take the franchise forward.”
Elaborating further, Bhushan Kumar said, “At the moment, we are jamming on the script. All the stakeholders are clear – the idea of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3 needs to be big and unique. Bhool Bhulaiyaa is an established franchise now, and there will be anticipation around it. Drishyam 2 was a unique idea and in the same way, we are on the lookout for a unique idea. Once we get that, we will move ahead.”
Speaking of the shooting of the third instalment, Bhushan shared, “We are targeting to release the film in 2025 and start it by the second half of 2024. We have got a good one and a half years to crack the subject.”
Well, before reuniting with Kartik on Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3, Bhushan and Kartik will be working on Aashiqui 3. Commenting on the same, Kumar added, “Aashiqui 3 goes on floors by the end of this year. Dada (Anurag Basu) will complete Metro: Inn Dino by February end and then start working again on the film script. Again, it’s going to be a very big musical.”
Besides these, the producer-actor duo has another project in their kitty, Shehzada. Talking about the same, the producer said, “Shehzada is a full-on family entertainer and I am very excited about the film. Kartik has done very good work there and it is a reunion of his super hit pairing with Kriti, who has also done a good job. I think Shehzada will give us a good start in 2023.” He concluded the conversation by saying, “Shehzada is a family film with entertainment, action and music. It’s a film for all age groups. I am very excited about the music of Shehzada too.”
