He has been compared to Akshay Kumar time and again and now Kartik Aaryan is stepping into the superstar's shoes in the sequel of `Bhool Bhulaiyaa`. 

The actor unveiled the poster of the film on Monday, sharing his first look from the comic-thriller. 

Donning a saffron colour garb of a "ghostbuster", the actor clearly resembles Akshay from the first installment. The `Luka Chuppi` actor shared the poster on his Instagram page.

"Ghostbuster is all set to enter Hare Ram Hare Ram Hare Krishna Hare Ram Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2," he wrote alongside the picture. The actor shared a series of pictures of his look from the film along with the release date- July 31 2020. 

The comic supernatural thriller will be helmed by Anees Bazmee, unlike the first one which was directed by Priyadarshan. The rest of the cast has not been announced yet.

The first part of the film was a remake of Malayalam blockbuster `Manichitrathazhu` which also starred Vidya Balan, Shiney Ahuja and Amisha Patel in the lead roles.

Meanwhile, Kartik is busy shooting for his upcoming film `Pati Patni Aur Woh` which also features Ananya Panday and Bhumi Pednekar. He also has Imtiaz Ali's 'Aaj Kal' opposite rumoured girlfriend Sara Ali Khan.
