The audience is desperately waiting to see Vidya Balan's return as Manjulika in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3. Recently during an interview with Mid-Day, the actress shared what people can expect from her role. Vidya shared that with Manjulika, she is not trying to recreate what she did before. "It is a different time and a different me. The role may be the same, but it has changed (in its own way). My approach is fresh,” she said.

Talking about the love she received 17 years back with the first part of Bhool Bhulaiyaa and her return in 3rd part, Vidya said, “Bhool Bhulaiyaa gave me so much. So, I felt, ‘Should I do another one in the franchise?’ The worry that the sequel won’t match up to the original always plays on an actor’s mind. But I have grown up. This is a completely different film, and there is so much to enjoy in it. I wanted to work with Anees bhai. I love the script, and because I was a part of the original, this is a whole different high.”
