‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ Teaser: Kartik Aaryan Plays Rooh Baba, And Manjulika Is Back With ‘Ami Je Tomar’
‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ will release on May 20th, 2022 and it marks the return of audience favourites Chota Pandit and Manjulika
Kartik Aaryan’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 teaser has been unveiled. The film also stars Kiara Advani, Tabu, and Rajpal Yadav and is a standalone sequel to Priyadarshan’s 2007 horror-comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa, starring Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan. The new teaser shows the return of a spirit in a haveli and unveils Kartik Aaryan’s look as Rooh Baba.
It’s been 15 years since we last heard Manjulika sing Ami Je Tomar on screen. The teaser opens with a glimpse of a silent mansion and as the camera moves towards a closed-door, chandeliers are turned off one by one to immerse the space in darkness. A spirit is seen waking up in rage as the lock of the door breaks open by itself. The teaser goes on to show the arrival of Kartik as a Rooh Baba, wearing black instead of Akshay’s yellow in the original. Rajpal Yadav is seen assisting him as he enters the haveli. He was seen as Chhote Pandit in the original.

Kiara shared the teaser on Twitter and captioned it, “The haunted haveli is all set to reopen its doors! Are you ready?”
Directed by Anees Bazmee, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 will release in theatres on May 20th, 2022. The film was originally scheduled to release in July last year but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was rescheduled for March 25 but was pushed to May to avoid a clash with SS Rajamouli’s RRR.
Talking about how Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is different from the original, Anees Bazmee had told Pinkvilla in an interview, “Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is special because it’s my first horror comedy, so this time, I am also trying to scare people. I have treated the subject in a new way. The original was a psychological thriller with comedy, this one is a proper horror comedy. The challenge is to remind people of the first part, yet provide a unique experience.”
Kartik Aaryan, who was last seen in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal, has a long list of films lined up for release, including Captain India, Freddy, and Shehzada among others.
