Tabu is the latest name to be roped in to the cast of Bhool Bhulaiya 2, the sequel to the 2007 hit Bhool Bhulaiya, which starred Akshay Kumar in the lead, as per a report in the tabloid Mumbai Mirror. She will be joining Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani, who are already on board the film.
A source told the tabloid, "Tabu has been in talks with the makers for a while now. She loved the script and her role. She is expected to join the cast in January when the second three-month schedule kicks off in London and Rajasthan."
The report also sheds more light on Tabu’s role. “Though it’s the same genre, there’s nothing in common between the two films and Tabu’s character, too, is dramatically different and one of the USPs of the film. But while Bhool Bhulaiyaa was a psychological-thriller with lots of laughs, the sequel is a proper horror-comedy with plenty of spooky moments,” said the source.
The first film was directed by Priyadarshan, but Bhool Bhulaiya 2 is helmed by Anees Bazmee. The makers had released the first poster of the film earlier this year. It featured Aaryan dressed up exactly like Akshay Kumar in Bhool Bhulaiya, in a religious saffron robe.
Tabu was also recently seen in another horror comedy in the form of Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again (2017).
Bhool Bhulaiya 2 will be released in July 2020.
