There are certain movies that you just can't get enough of, that can be enjoyed over and over without the slightest bit of boredom. These movies are special as they create an impact on our minds and thus we enjoy them again & again. And in that very list, Akshay Kumar's bhool bhulaiyaa also has a spot for so many people out there. Even though it was a remake of the movie Chandramukhi it has its unique perks to make it one of the most enjoyable horror comedies from Bollywood to date. For a long time, the talks about a sequel were speculated but when it was confirmed by the makers, it was widely encouraged by the fans.

So today we have the bhool bhulaiyaa 2 trailer and all the news about its cast, release date and storyline. The trailer showcases plenty of aspects of the movie. We will decode all of it for you one by one.


Bhool bhulaiyaa 2 is the sequel to the much-acclaimed bhool bhulaiyaa of 2007, which starred big names like Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Paresh Rawal, Shiny Ahuja, Amisha Patel and many others. It was a remake of a Malayalam movie but it was widely appreciated at the box office. It was a movie of the horror-comedy genre and as I said earlier became an evergreen movie with time.

Now after 15 years, the makers are returning with the second part to it. Although we know from the first part that, the story didn't end on any cliffhangers thus we can expect to see a whole new direction in which the original premise is carried. Let us take a look at the various details we see in the trailer and analyse what to expect on that basis.

Bhool bhulaiyaa 2 trailer breakdown

The trailer begins with the eerily familiar iconic track aami je tumhar but with a twist on Arijit Singh's voice behind it & a reference to the room of the central character of the original movie Manjulilka. Gives us a subtle idea that the story may still be based around the very tale only despite being a whole new one.

Moving forward we encounter a whole new roster of actors and new characters along with a rememberable character of chhote pandit still being played by Rajpal Yadav. The titular role of the paranormal expert here is given to the young and talented Kartik Aryan. Kiara Advani is the female lead in the movie along with tabu in an important role.

Going even further we see a lot of callbacks to the original movie, from dialogues to certain iconic scenes with give a pleasant hint of nostalgia but also give a bit of distaste upon comparison with the original one.
