Saif Ali Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Ali Fazal starrer horror comedy Bhoot Police was announced in April this year. The film has been directed by Pavan Kripalani, who directed Phobia and Darr@ The Mall. This project was to start in August this year but it has been pushed ahead.
Fatima,who was interacting with media during a product launch ,was asked about her upcoming film Bhoot Police and she said, “Yes, I am doing this film but we have not started work on it. I am hoping to start work on it next year.”
The makers had planned to start the first schedule of the film in August but due to some reasons it did not start. Another reason is also said to be dates of actors could not match.
The film will see Fatima playing an enchanter. She has recently finished shooting for a short film with director Shashank Khaitan, which features Jaideep Ahlawat in it. She is also part of Anurag Basu’s untitled film, featuring her along with actors like Aditya Roy Kapur, Abhishek Bachchan, Sanya Malhotra, Rajkummar Rao and Pankaj Tripathi. She has been paired with Rajkummar in the film and it is slated to release in February next year.
After her big debut with Dangal, Fatima was part of Thugs of Hindostan , with Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif. She played Amitabh’s daughter in it. This big budget film released on Diwali last year but it didn’t do well at box office.
