While Kartik Aryan is happily lapping up all the attention for bagging the sequel to 2007’s successful horror comedy Bhoola Bhulaiya , additional reports suggesting Akshay who played the lead in the original film , would be joining Kartik for an encore are nothing but over-enthusiastic PR exercise.
Outright denying Akskay Kumar’s participation in the sequel a source in the know reveals, “Only director Anees Bazmi and leading man Kartik Aryan have been finalized. The rest is all conjecture.”
Regarding the possibility of Akshay’s presence in the sequel the source says, “Akshay is not keen on doing sequels to his successful films. He’d rather explore new themes and subjects and leave the established franchise to younger actors.”
