- Bhool Bhulaiyaa raked over ₹ 100 crore in box office collection
- Kartik Aaryan to replace Akshay Kumar in yet another franchise
- As per reports, Kartik Aaryan will replace Akshay Kumar in the Housefull franchise
Bhool Bhulaiyaa starrer Kartik Aaryan has now become a household name in the Bollywood industry as his latest movie has already joined the ₹ 100 crore movie-club in 10 days and is all set to cross ₹ 150 crore mark.
After a lot of scepticism surrounded the movie as people wondered if he would be able to fill Akshay Kumar’s shoes in the first instalment, however, he has proved his mettle and now can be considered a “bankable” star in Bollywood.
This year has not been the merciful for Bollywood as only a handful of movies were able to make a mark at the box office.Even movies with big names failed to collect a good amount, however, Kartik, Tabu, and Kiara Advani surely got audiences back to the theatres.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has given Kartik’s career a boost, and now, according to Kamaal R Khan, the actor is all set to take over one more franchise of Akshay Kumar.
KRK tweeted that Kartik will feature in Housefull 5 and further wort, “I do confirm here that Kartik Aaryan is going to do #Housefull5 which is the franchise of Akshay Kumar. Akshay Kumar’s end starts from here. Akki Bhai aap bahut Achche Aadmi thai. Uparwala Apko Khush Rakkhe. See you in Canada bhai.”

Akshay Kumar had a go at the Box Office this year in March with his movie Bachchhan Paandey, however, it failed to make a mark and collected just a little under ₹ 50 crore in lifetime ticket sales. However, Akshay is set to come back with the release of Samrat Prithviraj which will hit the theatres on 3rd June.
Along with Akshay Kumar, Samrat Prithviraj will also star Manushi Chhillar, Sonu Sood, and Sanjay Dutt.
Akshay will also feature in movies like Raksha Bandhan, Ram Setu, Mission Cinderella, Oh My God 2, Selfiee, and the remake of Soorarai Pottru.
As for Aaryan, he will next be seen in Freddy, Shehzada and an unnamed project from Sajid Nadiadwala’s.
Shehzada will also star Kriti Sanon in the lead role, and is slated to release by the end of this year. The movie is a remake of the 2020 Telugu film Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo which starred Allu Arjun and Pooja Hegde in the lead roles and earned way over ₹ 200 crore at the Box Office.
