The makers of Phone Bhoot are creating a special cave set to shoot scenes for the upcoming Bollywood film.

The highly-anticipated horror comedy stars Katrina Kaif, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ishaan Khatter.

If all goes to plan, the trio will begin shooting in the new set from Saturday, March 6, 2021.

The Phone Bhoot team have completed the first schedule of the movie in Udaipur.

Now, the makers of the film are planning to shoot the second schedule in Mumbai.

According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the cave set will be in Goregaon’s Film City for the upcoming schedule.

A source said:

“A huge set of a cave is being created at Film City.

“While a few indoor scenes are on the cards, a major chunk of the proceedings will be filmed at this site.

“Gurmeet Singh (director) has charted out a 20-day schedule and procured the combination dates of his three leads.

“If all goes as planned, Katrina, Ishaan and Siddhant will report to the set tomorrow.”

Phone Bhoot is Katrina Kaif’s first collaboration with Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ishan Khatter.

Chaturvedi and Khatter have expressed their excitement about collaborating with the Bollywood beauty.

Ishaan Khatter has previously stated that he has been waiting to work with Katrina Kaif for a long time.

Shortly after Phone Bhoot’s initial announcement, Khatter said:

“Katrina is a senior in terms of her work and experience, and I look up to her.

“I have been waiting for years to work with her. She is the quintessential glamorous diva.”

“The photoshoot we did together was a riot, and I imagine we will be bringing our different energies to the set when we start shooting.”

Katrina Kaif has also shared the news of her role in the Bollywood film on her Instagram handle.

Her post came on Monday, July 20, 2020.

The caption read:

“The one stop shop for all bhoot related problems, #PhoneBhoot ringing in cinemas in 2021.”

Katrina Kaif, Siddhanth Chaturvedi and Ishaan Khatter’s horror-comedy Phone Bhoot has been highly anticipated since its announcement in 2020.

Phone Bhoot is being directed by Gurmeet Singh and produced by Excel Entertainment’s Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani.

The unusual genre paired with the cleverly combined cast is leaving fans eager to watch the trio come together for the first time on the big screen.

Phone Bhoot is due for release sometime in 2021.
