Amitabh and Boman will be part of the film and it will appeal to all age-groups.” Abhay adds, “My father and I always wanted to do a sequel and Nitesh came with an interesting idea. Bhushan and I fell in love with it and narrated it to Amit uncle and once we agreed we were on. We will go on floor in November and release the film in summer next year. Amit uncle will come back in the character of Bhootnath, but all other characters will change. The Bhootnath character is extremely popular and we plan to take him on another journey. I didn’t know how popular Bhootnath is till Amit uncle told that wherever he goes, kids know him as Bhootnath uncle and call him as such!”
