The movie ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’, starring Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan, released way back in 2007. But the movie still remains a favourite among many Bollywood fans for its humour, mystery and incredible performance by Vidya Balan.

Now, according to the latest grapevine the movie will most likely get a sequel. While Priyadarshan directed the original, the new film will be written and directed by Farhad Samji. Though a sequel, the movie will likely star a fresh cast.

A Mumbai Mirror report quoted a source as saying, “Bhushan wanted to make a part 2 of Bhool Bhulaiyaa for a while now and has cracked an idea with Farhad Samji, who will be writing and directing the film. It is in the development stage and will feature a fresh cast. Once the final script is locked, the team will kick off casting and other pre-production formalities.”

This news comes days after it was reported that T Series registered the title ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ a couple of weeks ago. 

The original film was an official remake of the Tamil hit ‘Chandramukhi’, starring Rajinikanth. ‘Chandramukhi’, itself was a remake of 1993 Malayalam film, ‘Manichitrathazhu’ starring Mohanlal and Shobana.
