No, Bhul Bhulaiya is not a remake of any movie in the film industry. However, the earlier released Bhul Bhulaiya was a remake of the Malayalam film Manichitrathazhu that was released in 1993. But, Bhul Bhulaya 2 is not a remake nor it is based on any true story or novel. The story of the upcoming movie is totally fictional and original. However, the makers had tried to continue the whole story of the spirit of Manjulika which was shown in Bhul Bhulaiya part 1.

In Bhul Bhulaiya we have seen the people of a village in Rajasthan believe that the spirit of dancer Manjulika who with his lover was killed by the king of the state and Manjulika’s spirit is still in the King’s Haveli where now lives Thakur family. The new bride of the family Avni (played by Vidya Balan) thinks of herself as Manjulika and acts like her after a few days of coming into the haveli. However, Dr Aditya (Akshay Kumar) claimed it was a mental condition and succussed in curing Avni and freeing the villagers from the fear of Manjulika. Now in the Bhul Bhulaiya 2, the return of Manjulika will be shown.

The Thakur family’s Haveli is shown in Bhul Bhulaiya 2 whereas Manjulika leaves are again shown in the second part. Ruhan who is in love with Reet Thakur comes to the Haveli and claims that he can see and talk with the ghost. In order to prove his powers, he awakes Manjulika who was locked in a room of Haveli for years. Now the spirit starts haunting everyone and strange things start to happen in Haveli. The movie will be a full dose of humour and horror with a spice of romance for the viewers.
