Vidya Balan essayed the popular role of Manjulika in the 2007 psychological horror-comedy film, ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ and she was quite appreciated for her acting in the film. Now, after so many year, a sequel starring Tabu, Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani named ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ is in works, which is set to be directed by Anees Bazmee.

Manwhile, fans have been wondering if Vidya will reprise the original role in the film and now the director has finally broken his silence. According to a report by Mid-Day, Balan is all set to return in the film, Anees said: “If the film is Bhool Bhulaiyaa, she (Vidya Balan as Monjulika) has to be there in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Let the rest be a surprise!”

“Their (Vidya and Anees) equation goes back to 2011 when Vidya made a cameo appearance in Anees’s film Thank You. She made the character of Monjulika, a Ghost of a royal dancer, memorable. [It is not clear if] Vidya will be seen dancing to Aami je tomar again or appear after the climax,” said the source.

The makers have also decided to remake ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ title song and Ami Je Tomar song. The film is scheduled for release on 25 March 2022. Originally, it was scheduled to be released in theaters on July 31, 2020, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The movie will also star Rajpal Yadav, Amar Upadhyay, Sanjay Mishra, Milind Gunaji, and Rajesh Sharma.

On the work front, Balan was last seen in ‘Sherni,’ in which she essayed the leading role of an Indian Forest Service officer, alongside Sharat Saxena, vijay raaz, Ila Arun, Brijendra Kala, Neeraj Kabi and Mukul Chaddha in supporting roles. Reportedly, she is also set to star as Indira Gandhi in a yet-untitled web series based on Sagarika Ghose’s biography Indira – India’s Most Powerful Prime Minister.
