Excel Entertainment, which has been founded by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, has graced the audience with several mega-hit films that obtain commercial and critical success. Off lately, they have also been conquering original content on Online Digital platforms with some shows and films.
Adding to their line up, Excel has just announced their upcoming film ‘Phone Booth’ which is a horror-comedy starring Katrina Kaif, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ishaan Khatter in the forefront! The trio will be coming together for a film that promises to be a hilarious entertainer.
Excel took to social media and shared,
“ Darna allowed hai, as long as you’re laughing along the way. #PhoneBhoot, ringing in cinemas near you in 2021.
@gurmmeetsingh @katrinakaif @siddhantchaturvedi @ishaankhatter @ravi.shankaran @jasvinderbath @ritesh_sid @faroutakhtar”
‘Phone Bhoot’ is Excel’s major film announcement after the 2019 super hit Gully Boy and their upcoming boxing film Toofaan. It is an important point to be noted that the photo that Excel shared of Katrina, Siddhant and Ishaan was shot before the lockdown was imposed.
After sharing the first look of the trio, the makers have now shared not one but two BTS videos from the shoot that took place before lockdown.
Sharing the first video on their social media, Excel Entertainment shared,
“These three are a party on their own. Stay tuned for triple the trouble in 2021 #BehindTheScenes
Adding to the shenanigans that took place on the shoot, Excel shared another video with the caption,
“‘Shooting’ Behind The Scenes. Quite literally! #PhoneBhoot #BehindTheScenes #ShotBeforeLockdown”
The upcoming supernatural comedy is produced by Excel Entertainment’s Ritesh Sidhwani & Farhan Akhtar, directed by Gurmeet Singh, and written by Ravi Shankaran and Jasvinder Singh Bath. The team will begin shoot later this year and the film is scheduled for a 2021 release.
