Amitabh Bachchan’s Bhoothnath Returns to release in India and Pakistan simultaneously

The sequel to Big B’s much loved kiddie favourite Bhoothnath will hit the theatres this week and here’s some goss

Amitabh Bachchan is back as a friendly ghost with Bhoothnath Returns, the sequel to his 2008 supernatural comedy Bhoothnath. We hear that Bhoothnath Returns which will release this Friday will simultaneously hit the theatres in India and Pakistan. It’s being said that after a long time a Bollywood movie will have a simultaneous release in Pakistan. Not so long time ago Total Siyappa had made it to the headlines for the same reason.

A source close to the Bhoothnath Returns production team says, “Yes, Mr. Bachchan has a huge demand in Pakistan. Hence because of the popularity we have decided to release Bhoothnath Returns in India and Pakistan together.”

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Bhoothnath Returns is an entertaining tale of good against evil, weak against powerful, past against future. Let’s wait and watch if the film releases simultaneously in Pakistan. Meanwhile, we are very excited for Amitabh’s Bhoothnath Returns. What about you, BollywoodLifers?
