Talks of a sequel to the Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ (2007) were doing the rounds in May, however, it was unknown at the time who the lead male would be. Makers have now hinted at three potential names in for the running.
Reported on Bollywood Hungama, Vicky Kaushal, Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao have been shortlisted for the second instalment. A close source shares the script is almost complete and are now going through the casting process. “The script of the film is almost done and so as to not waste time, the makers have begun the casting process. Till now, the options for the male lead have been brought down to just three names. Vicky Kaushal, Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao are the three names that have been shortlisted. There will be more follow ups, screen tests, look tests and the likes after which either one of the three will be cast in the lead role of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2.”
Comparing the three actors, the source says it’s a tough call, “Vicky Kaushal, Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao have each had their share of success at the box office, and each of them have proved they have what it takes to feature in a comedy. In fact, it is a tough call right now since each of the three have their own strengths.”
‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ will be developed and directed by Fahad Samji, who is currently working on ‘Housefull 4’.
