Here is his tweet:
The movie has been directed by Gurmmeet Singh and written by Jasvinder Singh Bath and Ravi Shankaran. The project is being backed by Excel Entertainment which is headed by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar.
On the work front, Katrina’s last release was the 2021 Akshay Kumar starrer, ‘Sooryavanshi’. Besides ‘Phone Bhoot’ Katrina will also be seen in ‘Merry Christmas’ this year and she also has ‘Tiger 3’ with Salman Khan in her kitty. Her ‘Jee Le Zara’ which Farhan Akhtar’s comeback to directorial has reportedly been delayed. The movie was supposed to start shooting later this year but this has been pushed to sometime next year due to the fact that besides Katrina, the movie also stars Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt and all three stars are super busy and cannot give bulk combination dates for this project in 2022. Siddhant Chaturvedi, in the meanwhile, was last seen in ‘Gehraiyaan’ and he has ‘Kho Gaye Hum Kahan’ and ‘Yudhra’ in the pipeline. Ishaan Khatter was last seen in ‘Pippa’.
