Anees Bazmi: “We Are Waiting For Kartik To Test Negative”

The shooting  of  Bhool Bhulaiya 2 was suspended again  this month when its leading man Kartik Aaryan  was tested positive  for Covid19. Now Kartik  is  well on the way  to recovery and spending his  time watching  a  whole lot of movies and  enjoying his  mother’s  cooking.

 Director Anees Bazmi is  not worried at all. “We have already shot more than  60 percent of the  film. Shooting stopped in Lucknow in March 2020 and  the  lockdown   followed .But  we  made up for lost time  when we resumed shooting. And now Kartik’s Covid which came  as  a  shock, is not a big problem. Kartik is  a very fast worker.He picks up his  lines in  minutes.We will be back on track as soon as he  rejoins us. We are all waiting for  him.”

Anees is all praise  for Kartik. “He is   a pleasure to work with.Always on  time, always  professional , never any tantrums. Kartik has a smile for  everyone. Having him on the set brings  very pleasant  vibes  into the  process of shooting.We  need  that positivity right now.”

Anees flashbacks  to the time he  first saw Kartik on screen. “I had full faith in  him  from his  first  film.When I  saw Pyaar  Ka Punchnaama I knew he was going to make it really big. I wanted to work with him then  only. But  everything takes its time in life. I am glad we are  working on  Bhool Bhulaiya 2  together. His comic  timing is  superb.”

As  good  as Akshay Kumar’s in the  first Bhool Bhulaiya film?

Anees demurs, “I had  nothing to do with Bhool Bhulaiya  with Akshay Kumar. So I wouldn’t know.”
