The first poster of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is out and while Kartik Aaryan‘s fans can’t stop gushing over his look as a ghostbuster in yellow toga, Akshay Kumar fans can’t stop wrinkling their nose over it. Not in awe of their favourite being replaced, Akshay Kumar’s fans called the sequel “unnecessary” and tweeted in demand for Bollywood to “ditch sequels”.

Kartik, whose look in the film seems no different than Akshay Kumar‘s look in the 2007 drama, revealed that what excited him the most was the fact that he was going to take over something that was fronted by Akshay himself. He mentioned that the story of the film is extremely entertaining and the audience is going to have a great laugh inside the theatres. Kartik was quoted saying, “I’m looking forward to collaborating with Bhushanji again. Bhool Bhulaiyaa has always been one of my favourite comedic supernatural thriller film and now being part of BB2 makes me happy, especially because I’ve been a big fan of Akshay Kumar sir and it’s a great responsibility to take his franchise forward. It’s a hilarious script and Anees sir has taken it to another level. I’m also looking forward to working with Murad bhai.”

However, Akshay Kumar fans are not to be convinced. Taking to their respective Twitter handles, while one wrote, “Really don’t like the idea of Karthik Aaryan in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 And I think Bollywood has to ditch sequels because the originals are always much better. (sic)” another stated, “Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 without @akshaykumar akki is like iron man 4 without @RobertDowneyJr .. Titu from sktks is nice but Dr. Aditya Shrivastav is emotion .. Nobody can match akshay, s comedy timing in bhool Bhulaiyaa series #BhoolBhulaiyaa2 @akshaykumar (sic)” and yet another tweeted, “Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 looks so unnecessary.. Karthik aryan cant match Akshay Kumar there and its the only truth.. (sic).”
