Even before Vivek Sharma's Bhoothnath releases, the buzz about its sequel is already doing rounds. On Javed Akhtar's recommendation, he planned to make a sequel to Bhoothnath. And now, Vivek is engrossed in the scripting process of Bhoothnath 2 (tentative title), which will star Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.
Excited about the fact that he will work again with Big B, Vivek informs, "Javed saab suggested me to add one scene at the climax, which would give a hint for its sequel." He goes on to add, "The sequel will have a very international look with lot of magic, animation, and real action. The film will be made on the lines of international films like The Matrix, Lord Of The Rings, Harry Porter etc."
When asked about the rumors of the change in the climax scene of the film, he clears, "There is no change in the climax and as far as the ending of the film is concerned, let the audiences come and discover if it's cheerful or sad."
Talking about the promotional strategy for Bhoothnath, he says, "We are coming up with innovative strategies starting with the unveiling of Big B's look in the film on March 15." Bhoothnath, which also stars Juhi Chawla, Priyanshu Chatterjee and SRK in a special appearance, is slated to release on May 9. The film is produced by Ravi Chopra.
