When the makers announced a sequel to one of the most loved horror – comedy in Bollywood, Bhool Bhulaiyaa, the audience was thrilled. The filming for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was in full swing in the month of March this year. The makers had scheduled the filming in Lucknow with actors Tabu, Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani, Rajpal Yadav and Govind Namdeo.
But, when the country was struck with nationwide lockdown, filming had to be postponed. Though at that time, the director Annes Bazmee said that the reason for the postponed is Kartik Aaryan’s injury. He cited that the lead actor’s hand injury is the reason to end that schedule in Lucknow at that time. But, he hadn’t refuted the lockdown scare as also being the major reason to postpone the filming.
In the month of March, while interacting with a news portal, the director revealed Kartik Aaryan’s situation. He said that Kartik Aaryan has been prescribed a completed bed rest by the doctors. Anees mentioned that the lead of the movie not being able to work is a major reason to postpone the filming schedule in Lucknow.
Meanwhile, he also revealed that the lockdown was definitely a serious issue and they couldn’t ignore it. He said that the filming has to be in Lucknow only, and besides that, their schedule is quite long. Thus, they will be back to Lucknow as soon as the actor recovers and the situation gets back to normal.
The makers had been taking all precautions on the filming site at the Mahmoodabad Palace in Sitapur district. All cast and crew had strict instructions to wear masks and use sanitizers regularly. But, since the spread was rapid, they had to stop the filming mid way and come back to Mumbai.
Now, Bazmee is all set to resume filming in Mumbai. But, he revealed that they will go back to Lucknow to film as soon as things are better.
