Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar’s Film Bhoot- Does It Have a RGV Connection?
Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar’s upcoming horror film Bhoot might have this connection
Bollywood had always a dearth of good horror films. But Karan Johar has pulled a casting coup of sorts by signing Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar for a horror-thriller Bhoot. The film will be based on a haunted ship in Mumbai and will be directed by debutante Bhanu Pratap Singh.
After some earthy and mind-blowing performances by both Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar, they will be seen in Bhoot and the posters look deadly alright! This is for the first time that Dharma productions is venturing into an out and out horror film. From what we know, this is a three-part franchise and the first part will be released on 15th November. Vicky Kaushal and Karan Johar both, took to their twitter accounts to share the first poster of the film. In the poster Vicky Kaushal can be seen trying to hit someone with an ax and is certainly scary enough to give you the chills.

With the announcement of this film, people wondered if it has anything to do with the other Bhoot franchise, started by filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma. However, RGV is not at all associated with this project and this is a complete Dharma film.
What people also don’t know that is this is the second film that Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar have signed together, even though the first film has technically not gone on floors, yet. Yes, we are talking about Takht. After, the Kalank debacle we hear that Karan Johar is busy making changes to the script and the film may have been postponed.
Takht also stars Ranveer Singh, Jahnvi Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Anil Kapoor and is based on the life of Aurangzeb and Dara Shikoh. The movie is set in the Mughal era and was looking for a summer 2020 release. However, it seems like the lead stars are busy with their other commitments and Takht won’t release before the latter half of 2020.
