Anees Bazmee on Tabu for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2: No one can do role better than her

Director Anees Bazmee shoots down rumours of Tabu dropping out of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2; confirms actor to join unit by mid-March.

Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani have been diligently giving shape to Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 over the past few months. Following the Manali stint, director Anees Bazmee is set to kick off a month-long schedule in Mumbai today. Tabu, who had shot portions of the horror-comedy in Lucknow last March, is expected to join the unit in this leg, marking her first shoot post the lockdown. There had been talk that the actor had expressed reservations about filming in the new normal, leading to speculation that she was being “difficult” and had walked out of the project. This was followed by chatter about the makers seeking her replacement.

“There was no point refuting the claims. I would [rather] concentrate on the film,” says Bazmee, unperturbed by the rumours. “We’ll begin shooting a song with Kartik and Kiara at a specially erected set in Dahisar. We have put up sets at various places, including Mira Road and Powai. As soon as we wrap up the song, we will begin the talkie portions when Tabu joins us by mid-March.”
