This year itself the actor became a part of two films - Luka Chuppi which hit the screens earlier this year and upcoming flick Pati Patni Aur Woh. Moreover, he also wrapped up the shoot of his forthcoming outing, Aaj Kal which is helmed by Imtiaz Ali.
Kartik also has Dostana 2 alongside Janhvi Kapoor and the exciting announcement was made a few weeks back.
Earlier it was reported that Kartik will be stepping into the shoes of Akshay Kumar in the sequel of his hit film Bhool Bhulaiyaa. Today, finally the news has been confirmed and the first look of the actor is unveiled. In the poster, Kartik is donning similar outfit which Akshay had donned in the first poster of Bhool Bhulaiyaa. The second instalment will be helmed by Anees Bazmee, unlike the first one which was directed by Priyadarshan.
Along with the first look and poster, the makers of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 also announced the release date of the film. The exciting flick will be hitting the screens on July 31, 2020.
Earlier, talking about the horror-comedy, a source had told Mumbai Mirror, "While the makers have locked the idea, the script is still to be finalised. But the idea was shared with Kartik who liked it and has agreed to take the franchise forward with the story set in a metropolis."
The first instalment was a remake of Malayalam blockbuster Manichitrathazhu and along with Akshay the film also starred Vidya Balan and Shiney Ahuja in the lead roles.
