Ever since Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Stree did well at the Box office last year, Bollywood happened to be exploring the genre of horror comedy in 3D. Saif Ali Khan, Fatina Sana Shaikh and Ali Fazal are all set to hunt ghost together in their upcoming film, Bhoot Police.
On Thursday morning, the makers of the film unveiled the first look of the film together with announcing the cast. Saif Ali Khan, who’s an amazing actor and has always amazed us by his interesting choice of roles, will be seen opposite the Dangal star Fatima Sana Shaikh and Alia Fazal in director Pavan Kirpalani's upcoming horror comedy film Bhoot Police.
Actress Fatima Sana Shaikh expressing her happiness, shared the picture on her Instagram handle. "Ghost hunting is a hilariously spooky business! Presenting the cast of #BhootPolice #PavanKirpalani #SaifAliKhan”, Fatima captioned the picture.
In the picture, Saif and Ali can be seen standing dressed in black t-shirt, while Fatima is seen sitting pretty in a grey off-shoulder sweater.
Opening up about the movie, the Dangal star stated, “I’m so pleased about ‘Bhooth Police’. The subject is brilliant; a story that really works and is surprising till then end. Clutter breaking even in its genre. Pavan is an occult expert and this cast is just right. Oh ya! And 3D!!! That’s a new one and I’m super excited. Pavan is really well versed with world horror as well as Indian folklore. So I’m excited working with him as it’s a favourite area of mine also. And working with someone new like Fatima who is very good at her work is also very exciting. Ali and I will be really good together I feel."
Bhoot Police marks the first collaboration of the trio, Saif Ali Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Ali Fazal. The film is helmed by Pavan Kirpalani and it is scheduled to go on floors from August 2019. Reportedly, the film was earlier titled 'Tantrik', and makers wanted Abhishek Bachchan to title the cast. However, due to some reasons, Saif was roped in for the film.
Saif Ali Khan is currently busy with Taanaji: The Unsung Hero, in which he will be seen playing a role of an antagonist. The film also stars Ajay Devgn.
