Akshay has been doing good work for 25 years. Akshay is doing comedy, dancing, acting, doing everything, the kind of films he wants. So, it is a very small thing for them to do or not do Bhul Bhulia 2. But if they were in our movie and our story allowed it, I’m sure (they would have done it). We share great relationships and friendships. I directed with Muzse Shaadi Karogi, Welcome and Singh is King. We share a great rapport and I would love to work with them again.

Bhul Bhulaya was such a big hit, so when I was asked to do this film, I started to feel the pressure. As it is a beautiful film, people’s expectations of our cinema are high and there are similarities. So, I was sure that what I wanted to keep from the film and not be part of our image. Bhool Bhulya 2 is not a psychological thriller like the original.

This Whole Family Entertainer is entertaining for everyone,” the post read. The film was produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani and Krishan Kumar under the banner of T-Series and Cine1 Studios.
