    Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Shehzada co-producer Bhushan Kumar reveals how Kartik Aaryan financially stood by them

    Kartik Aaryan ’s recently released horror comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 emerged as a complete winner. Not only did it leave audiences extremely impressed but also collected a whopping amount at the box office. Soon there were reports that the Bollywood heartthrob has hiked his fee because he has been delivering back-to-back hits. However, Kartik clarified that these were just rumors. In a hilarious tweet, he shared, “Promotion hua hai life mein. Increment nahi 😂 Baseless 🙏🏻.” This rumor came at a time when the increased fee of actors has become a big talking point in the industry.

    Well, in a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Bhushan Kumar who has co-produced Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 as well as Kartik’s next film Shehzada , lauded the actor for supporting the team financially. He shared people want to see larger than life cinema, which requires a lot of money. But these films cannot be made without support of the actors. Kumar was quoted saying, “For example, Kartik, he supported us a lot. This factor is very important for making a big budget film. Today, if the actor fee is more, we compromise on the budget.”

    He went on to add that every film which releases, does not need to enter the 100 crore club. Kumar explained, “Our film, Pati Patni Aur Woh made 92 crore and it's a Super Hit . Today, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has done Rs 150 crore, but we would have been in a happy space even at Rs 80 to 90 crore. Our next film is Shehzada, and we would want it to do better than Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, but that isn't a benchmark, because the finances of that film are different. Kartik financially stood by us during the turbulent times and hats off to him.”

    Apart from Shehzada, which is the Hindi adaptation of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo , Kartik has romantic thriller Freddy , Om Raut's as-yet untitled action film, Hansal Mehta’s social drama Captain India and Sajid Nadiadwala-produced love saga in the pipeline.
