For the third installment of the franchise, actor Vidya Balan, who portrayed the original Manjulika in the 2007 hit film, is coming back.

Talking about her return, Anees added, “Look, Vidya had agreed to do a 3-day role in my film Thank You. I remember calling her, and she taking no time to give her nod of consent. I don’t know why, but I can never forget that gracious gesture. It all started from there, and here I am today, ready to go on the set.”

On Monday, Kartik Aaryan took to Instagram to welcome Vidya Balan and share a mash-up of the song ‘Ami Je Tomar’ featuring the actor dancing to the song from ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ and Kartik from ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’.
