Kartik Aaryan REACTS to comparison with Akshay Kumar in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2
Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani starrer Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 trailer was launched yesterday (April 26). Director Anees Bazmee was also present at the event along with Kartik and Kiara. The horror-comedy is the sequel to 2007 movie Bhool Bhulaiyaa starring Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan. It was helmed by Priyadarshan. In the sequel, Kartik has stepped into Akshay Kumar’s shoes. He is playing Ruhan aka Rooh Baba. Akshay played the role of a Ghost hunter and psychiatrist.
During the media interaction at the trailer launch event, when KartikAaryan was asked if he felt the pressure of stepping into the shoes of Akshay Kumar, the Dhamaka actor gave an interesting reply.
He said that he didn’t want to do that comparison, because he feels “those shoes are too big to fill”. He added, “I loved him in Bhool Bhulaiyaa; I have grown up watching his films. So comparison naa he kare toh better hai (it’s better if one doesn’t do that comparison). I love him as an actor. We have tried to do our best here. Of course, the title is (same), but the character, there are things which create that nostalgia.”
Kartik further said, “We have taken that world (of the previous film) but everything else is new, of our own. I hope people will love it in its own new dynamic world that we have created with Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Comparisons will be there, but hope people remember this film for what it is”.
