It was in 2007 when Akshay Kumar won our hearts yet again, playing the psychiatrist who was summoned by a friend, played by Shiney Ahuja, to unravel mysterious happenings at his ancestral palace, which many claimed was haunted. Akshay Kumar famously co-starred with Vidya Balan in the movie, who was critically acclaimed for playing a character with split personality.
As per the first look posters, Anees Bazmee has taken over from Priyadarshan to direct Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which will be co-produced by Bhushan Kumar's T-Series. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is expected to hit screens on July 31, when it will clash with Ranbir Kapoor's much-awaited movie Shamshera, which is slated for July 30.
