Kartik as in the posters revealed by the makers can be seen donning the ‘saadhu’ avatar, with ‘om namah shivaya’ written all over his attire with the traditional ornaments just complimenting it fine. However, there’s a twist here, with the trendy shades and shoes, looks like post it’s all been filmed based on today’s era.

Earlier rumours were rife that the makers are willing to cast a young actress opposite Kartik. While there has been a lot of rumours about the new gen actresses – Sara Ali Khan, Ananya Panday as well as Janhvi Kapoor being a part of the sequel as the leading lady, looks like the wait isn’t going to be too long! Are y’all excited?
Meanwhile, Bhool Bhulaiyaa witnessed Akshay Kumar & Vidya Balan in the lead roles.
