Exclusive: Tabu to reprise Vidya Balan’s role in ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’
‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ has just gone on the floors earlier this week. The mahurat shot for the film was taken with the main leads Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani. Apart from Kartik and Kiara’s role, there is another very important female lead that needed to be finalised. Looks like the makers have found their perfect match in Tabu.
A source revealed to us the reason for considering Tabu fo this project, “The plan was to get the original leads Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan to play pivotal roles in the sequel too. But it didn’t happen largely because of the fallout between Akshay and Bhushan Kumar of T-Series who is bankrolling Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. After Akki decided to opt-out, Vidya also felt that it won’t look proper for her to do the film and she told the makers she won’t do it. But the character is so strong and impactful that they needed a very strong older Heroine to perform it. Then they approached Tabu. There were initial discussions which didn’t work out but eventually, Tabu charged a bomb which the producers mutually agreed upon.” The plan is to make the big announcement sometime next week.
The Anees Bazmee directorial has seen a sea of changes in terms of its cast. While Kartik who had given his dates for another Anees Bazmee film decided to leave that project which also starred Disha Patani and take up ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ sequel, a lot has gone behind the curtains with regards to BB2’s casting.
