Here's a refresher on what 'Bhoot Police' was all about
For the unversed, Bhoot Police revolved around "two brothers (Khan and Kapoor), whose job is to hunt and eradicate ghosts for money." Maya (Gautam Dhar), the owner of a tea estate in the hills assigns them the task of warding off evil in her mansion/factory, which leads to a series of hilarious incidents one after the other. Fernandez played Gautam Dhar's sister.
