Ever since the sequel of Akshay Kumar starrer Bhool Bhulaiyaa was announced we have been wondering as to who would be the star cast of the film. In the first part, we saw Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan in the lead role that did well at the box office in 2007. Now, the sequel of Bhool Bhulaiyaa seems to have a lot of speculations in the media. Earlier we heard that Kartik Aaryan was supposed to lead the show in the pivotal role, while we now hear Ayushmann Khurrana is being approached for the same.
As per the recent reports, Ayushmaan was seen meeting the makers, which somewhere has made them rope in for the role. The reports also suggest that this time, the makers want to make the sequel on a large scale. They also shared the script with the actor and the Badhaai Ho actor has read it and even liked the same. However, they are into the discussion but the actor is yet to give his formal commitment for the same. The key roles of the sequel would appear the same as seen in the prequel.
The actor is now considered as the lead actor in the film, while they are now in a hunt for the leading who would be playing the role of Vidya Balan as seen in the prequel. They have kept a few names as the option for the leading lady and they are of the opinion to take the one from a younger generation. Also, they want to rope in a lady who can give a good performance as well since the character of the sequel happens to be heavy and challenging. The makers claim that Ayushmaan Khurrana has given them verbal commitment for the film as he is facing issues with dates for three films, he would take time to confirm officially later.
