Actors Katrina Kaif, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ishaan Khatter are set to team up for the first time in Phone Bhoot. Touted to be a horror-comedy, the upcoming project will be bankrolled by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment. The makers made the announcement on Monday by sharing a clip featuring the three actors.
“Darna allowed hai, as long as you’re laughing along the way. #PhoneBhoot, ringing in cinemas near you in 2021,” the production house wrote on social media. Farhan Akhtar also tweeted, “The one stop shop for all bhoot related problems, #PhoneBhoot ringing in your nearest cinema in 2021”
