Kartik Aaryan is enjoying the success of his latest release Bhol Bahlai 2. On Saturday, the actor shared a video for the much-anticipated song, “Ami Je Tomar.” Shreya Ghoshal sang the old show of the song and Vidya Balan appeared playing the role of Manjulika. However, the new version of the song has been sung by Arijit Singh and featuring Kartik Aaryan.
Kartik shared the video on his Instagram and described the song as the “hardest song” of his career. “Ami je Tomar ka Tandavarijitsingh ki surilee aawaz auripritamofficial dada ka sangeettusharjoshiii ke sang 🖤chinnilaljayaprakash jee ke nritya nirdeshan mein (Ami Je Tomar sings in the soulful voice of Arijit Singh and composed by Pritam under Chinnilal Jayaprakash choreography)” Post title read.
As soon as Kartik shared the post, his fans showered the actor with praise. One comment read: “The way you nailed this.” Another fan mentioned, “No doubt it was your best performance so far.” Another fan wrote how the song is “the best scene in the entire movie.” Many of his followers said the song gave them goosebumps.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 received a lot of love from the audience. The film, which was released last week, has continued to dominate the box office strongly. So far, the film has been minted at over Rs 98 crore and is expected to cross Rs 100 crore soon.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office numbers on Twitter. “#BhoolBhulaiyaa2 is advancing gloriously, unmoved by new opponents…expect bigger numbers over the weekend…it will hit 💯 cr today” [second Sat]…the second #KartikAaryan movie hits a century after #SKTKS… [Week 2] Fri 6.52 cr. Total: 98.57 SEK. #India biz,” tweet read.
Fast Indian critic Shalini Langer gave Bhool Bhulaiyaa only 2 stars. “Don’t expect any light touches, or any pretentious music like the first part. Apart from Monjulika’s white-faced, tall, black dress appearance, there are frequent jokes at the expense of an overweight, difficult-to-hear child, deceiver, and occasional disrespect toward a woman. An old woman just died, gross misuse of a donkey, and Rohan’s sexism towards the opposite sex,” says part of the review.
Kartik Aryan Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was released on May 20.
