This film smartly tackled superstitions while shining a spotlight on mental disorders.
When mid-day asked Anees Bazmee if the film will start from where Akshay left it, he preferred to stay mum and did not divulge any details. He rather emphasised that the film will take on society's superstitious beliefs. "It reinvents the premise of the first film and is a fresh take on the genre. It talks about how society is blinded by superstitions in a humorous manner," said the director.
