In a conversation with Lehren Retro, Anees talked about Akshay’s reaction to getting replaced in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3. The filmmaker said, “I keep talking to Akshay. I have made my life’s two most beautiful films with him – Singh Is Kinng and Welcome. For Bhool Bhulaiyaa, it was the decision of the producers. If you ask me, I always want to work with him. He is such a good actor and we are good friends. It is such a small thing for him. He is such a big star that if he isn’t doing a film, it is others’ loss not to cast him, but it isn’t a loss for him.”
