Kaif plays a ghost in the film and is on a rattle against Jackie Shroff aka ‘Atma Ram’ who forcefully cages the departed souls. Chaturvedi and Khattar seem to be the desi version of ghostbusters, meet Kaif who has a business plan for the two, and the trio is all set to defeat Shroff and help the caged souls attain ‘moksh’. While the trailer takes you through a fun roller coaster ride it has few references from other Bollywood movies such as Koi Mil Gaya (2003) and Ek Tha Tiger (2012) which seem to be hilarious.
Directed by Gurmmeet Singh and written by Ravi Shankaran and Jasvinder Singh Bath, Phone Bhoot is a horror comedy produced by Excel Entertainment, headed by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar. The film is slated to be released on November 4, 2022.
