Saif Ali Khan and Arjun Kapoor’s horror-comedy, Bhoot Police, also featuring Yami Gautam and Jacqueline Fernandez, premiered last Friday on the Disney+ Hotstar. However, now according to Pinkvilla the producer Ramesh Taurani and his director, Pavan Kripalani is plotting to twirl Bhoot Police into a franchise with the two leads, Saif and Arjun resuming as ghost hunters.
According to Pinkvilla’s source, “The template of Bhoot Police allows the makers to spin it into a franchise. While the makers had kept an open ending to hint at the possibility of a sequel, we hear that the team has already started early conversations on Bhoot Police 2. The idea is to continue the franchise bringing horror and humor together and making the ghost hunter face new challenges in different terrains of India,”.
However, the pink villa source further said that the shrewd elements of two characters, covered with the elements of blind faith and exorcism, make it a thrilling factor for the team to make it into a franchise. Bhoot Police would come as the second series of Ramesh Taurani after Race. “It’s still some time for Bhoot Police 2 to take off. There is a high possibility of Race 4 happening before the horror-comedy, as the scripting of the action thriller is already going on in full swing,” pinkvilla source added.
Ramesh Taurani also verified the development saying, “Yes, we are planning a sequel to Bhoot Police. The audience is enjoying the first part and I am looking forward to taking it forward with the team.”
In Bhoot Police, Saif and Arjun played the role of Vibhooti and Chiraunji have ‘fought’ a group of ghosts. However, a new case compels them to reconsider their skills and notions. Saif’s upcoming films comprise the Om Raut directed Adipurush and the Vikram Vedha remake alongside Hrithik Roshan. Arjun Kapoor has also a fizzy lineup with Ek Villain Returns, Kutty, and the Ayyappanum Koshiyum remake in his kitty.
