Priyadarshan’s 2007 comedy, Bhool Bhulaiyaa, the Hindi adaptation of the Malayalam film Manichitrathazhu, starring Shobana and Mohanlal, popularised the horror-comedy genre in Bollywood. The film starred Vidya Balan as a woman seemingly possessed by a spirit and Akshay Kumar as the psychologist who arrives at a Rajasthani palace to rid the place of the supposed ghost. Co-starring Shiney Ahuja and Paresh Rawal, Bhool Bhulaiya received commercial acclaim and is counted among Priyadarshan’s best films in Hindi. 

Now, eleven years on, producer Bhushan Kumar has teamed up with writer-director Farhad Samji to create a sequel to the popular classic. Tiled Bhool Bhulaiya 2, the new film is in the development stage and will feature a fresh cast. A formal announcement will be made once the makers have locked the script. 

Incidentally, Farhad and Akshay recently collaborated on Housefull 4, which releases on October 25. The veteran screenwriter has also penned the upcoming sequel of Coolie No 1, starring Varun Dhawan. 

Akshay recently started shooting for Laaxmi Bomb, an adaptation of the Kanchana/Muni horror-comedy franchise directed by Raghava Lawrence. Other upcoming films in the genre include Rooh-Afza and Stree 2, both starring Rajkummar Rao.
