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 you."
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.
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.
