Owing to the nation-wide lockdown imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the entertainment industry has been quite affected. Many have incurred heavy losses as work on projects came to a halt. The producers are now trying to figure out how they can complete the shooting of pending film and TV shows. Bhool Bhulaiya 2 was scheduled to hit the silver screen on July 31, but because of the lockdown, the makers were forced to suspend the shooting and push back on its release date. Kiara Advani and Kartik Aaryan, along with the entire cast, were shooting in Lucknow for the film when the lockdown was announced.
We have to go to Lucknow to finish the film. We had built a huge set and it has been standing untouched all these months. It is imperative to shoot the remaining portions there to maintain continuity.
The director is considering shooting certain indoor portions of the movie in Mumbai itself before the unit gets a green signal for the Lucknow schedule.
The movie is being produced by Bhushan Kumar‘s T-Series and also stars Tabu, Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Mishra, Rajpal Yadav among others.
