Just like the shooting for many other films, the entire cast and crew behind Bhool Bhulaiya 2 had to halt the film project due to Covid 19 in 2020. The film is soon to resume shooting. However, even before the shooting began many rumours suggested that Tabu waa refusing to give dates to the filmmakers of Bhool Bhulaiya 2 which subsequently delayed the film.
Now director Anees Bazmee has categorically debunked all such rumours. Bazmee said that the film did not begin shooting as he himself was busy for 10 months after the pandemic began in 2020. The filmmaker further said, “ I fail to understand why Tabu was targeted for the shoot of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 not being in progress? It's still pandemic time and it is not easy to predict how long it will take even now to complete the film. Only if all goes well, we should be done by April-May. We are likely to shoot almost continuously.”
“ Tabu had not refused to shoot. In fact, I myself was not in Mumbai for 10 months after Covid-19 broke out. I had gone away to my farmhouse in Lonavala with my family,” he added.
