Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3: Back to the OG? Yes, ji

Think Manjulika, and the first name that comes to mind is Vidya Balan. The actor had made a strong impact as she played a woman battling dissociative identity disorder in Bhool Bhulaiyaa (2007). Another powerhouse performer Tabu took the baton, playing the popular character in the second instalment that released in 2022. Now, we hear Balan is returning to the franchise. The big question is: will she reprise the role of Manjulika as she joins Kartik Aaryan in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3?

Director Anees Bazmee is keeping his cards close to his chest as he gears up to roll the horror comedy in Mumbai in the first week of March. While it is yet unknown whether the actor will step into the shoes of Manjulika, sources tell us that she will portray a pivotal character who drives the narrative. A source from the creative team elaborates, “When Anees narrated the story, Vidya loved it and agreed to join the film in principle. Now, some formalities like dates and remuneration are being locked. She is keen to work with Anees on a full-fledged film; they had briefly worked together in Thank You [2011], in which she had a cameo.”
