Well, here's the scoop of Ram Gopal Varma's latest directorial venture Darling. As against the title, this isn't a romantic film (you can expect that in his other film Nishabd). On the contrary this is a ghost story. Not the typical scary types though but on a much lighter note.
In this film Fardeen is paired opposite two women who sound the same but spell different (Esha Deol and Isha Koppikar). Esha Deol and Fardeen Khan are in love until Esha suddenly passes away. Fardeen hooks up with Isha Koppikar and they get married. Now the fun begins when the ghost of Esha Deol who is still in love with Fardeen and has not yet crossed over into the other world comes into their lives and enters Isha's body.
This is Fardeen Khan's second encounter with a ghost. The first time was also in Ram Gopal Varma's Bhoot. However that film was more serious while this film is an out an out comedy.
