‘Rooh Baba’ returns Diwali 2024 in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3
A snazzy teaser announces the ‘return’ of Rooh Baba, a.k.a. Ruhaan, or Kartik Aaryan, with the latest sequel in tinseltown, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3, produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar of T-Series Films and directed by Anees Bazmee.
Unlike the 2007 original, there is likely to be a direct plot link to Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 in this film as the hero is repeated (Akshay Kumar and Shiney Ahuja were the leading men in Bhool Bhulaiyaa). The teaser tantalizes, with Rooh Baba stating (in Hindi of course) that any doors that close (as in the 2022 hit’s climax) are not for keeps but for creeps, as “they can open again!” He is also sitting in a chair and declares, “I don’t just talk to myself. Spirits do come and reside within me!” And then bursts into a cackle of maniacal laughter!
And of course, the classic Pritam composition, Ami je tomar, will obviously feature in the film again.
Going by director Anees Bazmee’s statement last year, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3 will again be a horror film, yet a family film. The director feels, “It is very important that there should be children in my audience and they should enjoy it and be scared, thrilled and excited as if on a rollercoaster.”
