Director Anees Bazmee has changed his plans for resuming the filming of ‘Bhool Bhulaiyya 2’ next month and is now hopes to begin by the end of the year.
Bazmee had previous said he would resume shoot in September, reports Hindustan Times. He was filming in Rajasthan when the schedule got cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The director said to the media, “Since we have already filmed a few portions in Lucknow, it makes sense to shoot there to maintain continuity. We intend to resume work by the year-end, [with the schedule] running into early 2021. I hope the vaccine arrives soon; it’ll make matters easier.”
He added, “The unit of our Lucknow schedule comprised 400 people. It will be a tough task to shoot with one-third of the strength. We have three to four cameras, with four people assigned for each. Then, there are light men, actors’ staff and crew members from other departments.”
Back in June, Bazmee had revealed he wanted to resume shooting by September. “We have to go to Lucknow to finish the film. We had built a huge set and it has been standing untouched all these months. It is imperative to shoot the remaining portions there to maintain continuity. The safety of our cast and crew is of utmost importance to us. Only when we receive the permission from the [Uttar Pradesh] government, will we resume work on the film. Hopefully, we will revisit Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 by September,” he said.
The movie stars Kartik Aaryan as well as Kiara Advani and Tabu. The film is a sequel to ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ (2007), which starred Akshay Kumar in the lead.
