'Phone Bhoot': Katrina, Siddhant, Ishaan team up for horror-comedy
Got any bhoot-related problems? Stop worrying, desi ghost-busters Katrina Kaif, Siddhant Chaturvedi, and Ishaan Khatter are coming to rescue you. Well, the trio is teaming up for an upcoming horror-comedy film titled Phone Bhoot (no, not booth). The movie has been directed by Gurmmeet Singh, and produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani under their banner Excel Entertainment. Here's more about it.
Announcing the project, Katrina Kaif posted a quirky first look calling it, "The one-stop shop for all bhoot related problems." Ishaan also hilariously clarified that the photo shoot was done before the nationwide lockdown was announced in March. Meanwhile, Siddhant captioned his post as, "Triple Trouble In Bhoot World! Darna allowed hai, as long as you're laughing along the way (sic)."
Excel Entertainment's last Hindi theatrical outing was Gully Boy. Phone Bhoot, penned by Ravi Shankaran and Jasvinder Singh Bath, marks the first-ever collaboration between the three actors. The movie is expected to go on floors later this year and will be released in 2021. However, given the uncertainty that surrounds the entertainment world, nothing is etched in stone.
Phone Bhoot is Excel Entertainment's first major announcement after last year's superhit musical Gully Boy. This apart, the production house also has K.G.F: Chapter 2 and Farhan Akhtar-starrer sports movie Toofan in the pipeline.
Meanwhile, Katrina, last seen in Salman Khan-starrer Bharat, is set to star in Rohit Shetty's cop movie Sooryavanshi, also featuring Akshay Kumar. Separately, Ishaan's maiden television series A Suitable Boy will soon release on Netflix in India. He also has Khaali Peeli, co-starring Ananya Panday, coming up. Siddhant, on the other hand, has Bunty Aur Babli 2 in the pipeline.
