Phoonk was scary. Phoonk 2 promises to be
scarier. That's what its lead man Sudeep (last seen in RGV's
Rann) and Phoonk 2 director Milind Gadagkar feel.
"While Phoonk was more of a supernatural thriller, with
black magic as the backdrop, Phoonk 2 is a horror film
with a ghost ruining the peace of the family that shifts to a new
town," director Milind Gadagkar states.
Milind, who had penned Phoonk, was entrusted the
responsibility of directing its sequel the moment Ram Gopal Varma
heard the storyline. "I have not assisted anyone, but being the
writer of Phoonk and attending its shoot gave me an
insight," he divulges. Sudeep adds, "A lot of people felt that
Phoonk didn't give them the jitters. It wasn't scary
enough. But Milind's written material as also the way he has
executed the subject will scare the living daylights out of
So is there a possibility of Phoonk 3? "If Phoonk
2 works, yes. Everything boils down to how the audience
accepts the second part. If they are receptive, the third part will
follow," Sudeep states.
