Although it is a known fact that Ranbir Kapoor will be seen making a special appearance in the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Bhootnath Returns, it is now revealed that the actor will be seen playing himself. Bhushan Kumar, who is co-producing the film with Abhay Chopra, confirmed the news and stated, “Ranbir has already shot for his cameo in the film and yes, it is true that he will be seen playing himself, as actor Ranbir Kapoor in the film.” The actor had recently shot his portions with Bachchan, with the latter even tweeting a photograph taken on the sets.
A source close to the film added that Kapoor makes his entry at an important point and his character is somewhat crucial to the flow of the film. Kumar also confirmed that Shah Rukh Khan, who played the role of Aditya Sharma (child Aman’s father in Bhootnath), will be seen reprising his role in the sequel. “Shah Rukh too has a cameo in the film and his character will be a continuation to the one that he played in Bhootnath (2008). He will shoot for his portions in March,” added Kumar.
Bhoothnath Returns is scheduled to release on April 11 and stars Bachchan, Boman Irani and Marathi actress Usha Jadhav in the lead.
