Bhushan Kumar of T-Series and Juno Chopra of the legendary BR Studios have one again joined hands to collaborate on the third installment of the Bhootnath franchise. Having revived the BR Studios banner last year with successful outings like Bareilly Ki Barfi and Ittefaq, Juno is keen on producing more films, and couldn’t think of a better choice than joining hands once again with Bhushan for another Bhootnath film.
While the first film in the franchise was a moderate commercial success, the second one didn’t perform as per expectations at the box-office. However, we suspect that the recent commercial success of horror comedies like Golmaal Again and Stree may have spurred the producers into deciding on a third part in the series. It remains to be seen if Amitabh Bachchan returns for the film, though it’s tough to imagine anyone else in the eponymous role other than him.
A call is also to be taken on the Director of the film. Vivek Sharma had helmed the first film while Nitesh Tiwari of Dangal fame had handled the reins for the second part. Apart from Bhootnath 3, T-Series and BR Studios will also be collaborating on two more projects, one of which will be directed by Mudassar Aziz of Happy Bhag Jayegi and its sequel fame.
