Kartik Aaryan's sense of humour was at display again with the recent announcement by Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray regarding the opening of cinema halls in the state. The actor, whose Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 release was also announced as a part of the reopening, rejoiced the occasion by grabbing a bowl of popcorn. The decision comes after a long haul ever since the advent of the second wave of the ongoing novel COVID-19 pandemic led to theatres closing down. 

Apart from Kartik and Kiara Advani's upcoming horror-comedy film, several big-budget flicks, ranging from Akshay Kumar's Sooryavanshi, Bachchan Panday, to Ranveer Singh's 83, are set to hit theatres soon. Celebrating the occasion as 'Happy Announcement Day', the actor posted a quirky photo of him as he enjoys his snacks.
