The official announcement about ‘Phone Bhoot’ was made moments ago. Katrina Kaif, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ishaan Khatter are finalised as the lead actors of this horror comedy. The film will be directed by Gurmmeet Singh, who earlier worked in Mirzapur as one of the director.
The film will be produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under the banner of Excel Entertainment. The filming will start later this year maybe in November or December. The creators said, the film will be released in 2021. Here is a announcement video released by the team.

Katrina Kaif will be seen for the first time in such genre of movie. She previously worked in comedy movies but a horror comedy was missing in her filmography. Gurmmeet Singh who directed gems like Mirzapur also directed movies like Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene and What The Fish. Those other movies are not that much liked by the audience so this time Gurmmeet has a chance to present us something good.
Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ishaan Khatter are capable actors. Their presence in this film will surely enhance the look of it. Siddhant who you must remember from Gully Boy, worked in the comedy genre before and has a good approach in this kind of movies. Ishaan will also get a chance to show his comic skills.
