The Indian Express quoted  the actress as saying, “Bhool Bhulaiyaa was the first ever horror film that I watched. Being a huge fan of the first one, It’s super exciting to get the opportunity to be a part of the franchise. It’s my first time being directed by Anees sir and I’m looking forward to the experience. It’s being produced by the makers of my most special film so it feels like home working with Cine1 and T-Series again. Kartik and I are working together for the first time, can’t wait to begin this journey so we can bring the film to you soon!”

The film will be backed by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, and Krishan Kumar.

The original 2007 film was helmed by Priyadarshan and featured Akshay Kumar, Shiney Ahuja, Vidya Balan, Ameesha Patel, Paresh Rawal, Manoj Joshi, Asrani, Rajpal Yadav and Vikram Gokhale. Bhool Bhulaiyaa was an official remake of the 1993 Malayalam film, Manichitrathazhu, which had Mohanlal and Shobana in lead roles.

Both Akshay and Vidya were nominated for Best Actor at IIFA (International Indian Film Academy Awards) that year.
