Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani starrer ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ has already hit the theatres on May 20. Its director Anees Bazmee has now opened up on not casting Akshay Kumar in the second sequel of 2007 psychological thriller.
The movie is a sequel of the hit 2007 that starred Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan and Shiney Ahuja.
Notably, elements from the original film have been retained, the leading cast did not return for the sequel.
Director Anees Bazmee has also worked with Akshay Kumar in other films too like ‘Welcome’ and ‘Singh Is King.’ Now, he has opened up on why the superstar did not return for the sequel.
In an interview to the Indian Express,Anees Bazmeesaid, “Akshay is too big for these small things. Akshay Kumar cannot be replaced, and he knows that he is not replaced in this film. Akshay has a great body of work over 25 years. Akshay is doing comedy, he is dancing, he is doing action, he is doing everything, he is getting offered the kind of films he wants. So, it is a very small thing for him to do or not do Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. But of course, if he was in our film, and if our story would have permitted that, then I am sure (he would have done it). We share a great relationship and friendship. I had directed Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Welcome and Singh Is King with him. We share a great rapport and I would love to work with him again.”
