As a cinegoer, we are loving that talented star Saif Ali Khan, who doesn't appear in many films, is on a signing spree. After Tanhaji: The Unsung Hero and Jawaani Jaaneman, the Chhote Nawaab has now signed India's first 3D horror comedy franchise film, Bhoot Police, which also features Fatima Sana Shaikh and Ali Fazal in key roles. Looking at the title and the first look of the film, it seems that the lead cast will play ghost hunters. Bhoot Police will be helmed by Pavan Kirpalani, who is known for directing thrillers like Phobia and Ragini MMS.
Talking about the film, Pavan said, “This is a story I've been living with for a very long time. Couldn't have found better collaborators than Saif, Ali, Fatima and most importantly Fox Star to bring this to life. This is going to be a fun, spooky ride!” Rucha Pathak, CCO of Fox Star Studios commented on this announcement and said, “We are excited to delve into a new world of technology and story-telling with Bhoot Police. We are looking forward to this collaboration with Pavan and the brilliant star cast and having a great time ahead with this movie!”
Presented and produced by Fox Star Studios, Bhoot Police is written by Pavan Kirpalani, Anuvab Pal, Sumit Batheja and Pooja Ladha Surti. The film is set to go on floors in August this year. Meanwhile, Saif is currently shooting for Ajay Devgn and Kajol starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Hero. He plays the lead antagonist, named Udaibhan Singh Rathod. Directed by Om Raut, the period drama is mounted on a lavish budget of Rs 150 crore and will hit the screens on January 10, 2020. It will clash with Deepika Padukone's Chhapaak at the box office.
On the other hand, Fatima Sana Shaikh will be next seen in an Anurag Basu's untitled venture, which has a stellar cast of Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanya Malhotra and Pankaj Tripathi. The film is set to hit the screens on September 6 and will clash with Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan's Good News at the box office. Are you excited for Bhoot Police? Tweet to us @Bollywood_Life
