The producer who also produced Akshay Kumar-starrer `Bhool Bhulaiyaa` expressed his excitement of finally receiving a script, based on which he started ``Bhool Bhulaiyaa` franchise.
"Finally, after a long wait of 11 years, Murad Bhai came to me with a script, which I felt was worthy of taking Bhool Bhulaiyaa forward as a franchise.
