Anees Bazmee's long awaited horror comedy 'Bhool Bhulaiya 2' was finally released on this Friday and it's been getting amazing response from the audience. The film is a sequel to Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan starrer 2007 classic and it stars Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani and Tabu in the lead. Ever since casting of the film was announced, fans have wondered why Akshay wasn't brought back for the sequel despite giving a truly iconic performance in the first installment.

In a recent media interaction, director Bazmee addressed the issue and revealed why Akshay wasn't involved in 'Bhool Bhulaiya 2'. According to a recent report in The Indian Express, Bazmee said, "Akshay is too big for these small things. Akshay Kumar cannot be replaced, and he knows that he is not replaced in this film. Akshay has a great body of work over 25 years. Akshay is doing comedy, he is dancing, he is doing action, he is doing everything, he is getting offered the kind of films he wants. So, it is a very small thing for him to do or not do Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2."

He further added, "But of course, if he was in our film, and if our story would have permitted that, then I am sure (he would have done it). We share a great relationship and friendship. I had directed Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Welcome and Singh Is King with him. We share a great rapport and I would love to work with him again.”
