Setting a date with spirits

Ayushmann Khurrana and Anees Bazmee

After Dream Girl 2 (2023), Ayushmann Khurrana is again in the mood for some funny business. Since late 2022, there was chatter that the actor—known for his social comedies—and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 (2022) director Anees Bazmee were keen to collaborate. In the latest development, we hear the two have zeroed in on a horror comedy. “Ayushmann and Anees are in discussion for a horror comedy titled Bhootiyapa. Other details are being worked out right now,” says a source. 

Working out the shooting timeline could be tough, given the duo’s line-up ahead. Bazmee is currently shooting Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3 with Kartik Aaryan, Vidya Balan, Madhuri Dixit-Nene and Triptii Dimri. After that, the filmmaker will go behind the camera for the No Entry sequel with Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh. The source adds, “Anees is planning to roll the No Entry sequel by the year-end. Meanwhile, Ayushmann has the Sourav Ganguly biopic in the offing. So, the actor-director duo are figuring out when they can roll their laugh riot.”
