The decision to revive Saif Ali Khan’s long-pending Horror Comedy film ‘Bhoot Police’ has now been taken and Arjun Kapoor has also been entered this film.
The year 2020 has been the best year of the last decade for Saif Ali Khan. His film ‘Tanhaji’ became a hit early this year. Jawani Jaaneman also did better than his previous films. And, now he is going to be a father again soon. This is said to be the best time for Saif since the film ‘Race 2’ hit in 2013.
Cinema experts also point out that Saif Ali Khan’s career may pick up new momentum now as he is also ready to do side roles or say character roles instead of lead hero. Saif Ali Khan was earlier featured in the lead roles alongside Ali Fazal & Fatima Sana Shaikh in ‘Bhoot Police’. Now a little change has been made in the story of this film and Arjun Kapoor will be appearing in the lead role with Ali Fazal. The first look of the film ‘Bhoot Police’ was released on social media by Ali Fazal in April last year.
Directed by Pawan Kripalani, ‘Bhoot Police’ is a horror comedy and is being produced by Akshay Puri along with Tips Music Company owner Ramesh Taurani. Saif Ali Khan himself had made public the details of postponement of the film last year. Since the success of the film ‘Stree’ in Hindi cinema, many producers have been working on direction of horror comedy movies. Katrina Kaif, Siddharth & Ishan’s film ‘Phone Booth’ is a similar film.
Due to increasing interest in horror comedy, South Indian director G Ashok is also remaking his film ‘Bhagmati’ in Hindi as ‘Durgavati’. He has also started discussions with writer director Raj Shandilya to make a horror comedy film. Bhoomi Pednekar plays the role of an IAS officer in the film ‘Durgavati’.
