Ghosts meet for Datta’s Bhooter Bhabishyat

The cast of Bhooter Bhabishyat comprising Swastika Mukherjee, Sreelekha Mitra, Monami Ghosh, Mumtaz Sorcar, Bibhu Bhattacharya and George Baker joined director Anik Datta and producer Joy Ganguly to talk about the film at The Wall on Saturday.

Bhooter Bhabishyat revolves around a bunch of ghosts who inhabit a dilapidated house which a promoter wants to raze and build a highrise. But the smart bhoots have some wacky plans up their sleeve!

“In my 10-year acting career, this is the first time I have played a bhoot in a film. I play a yesteryear actress who is a nyaka ghost. It was great fun!” laughed Swastika.

“I play a yuppie, bubbly bhoot. But none of us in the cast has seen the film yet,” said Mumtaz.

Sreelekha, who has a guest appearance in the film, feels Bhooter Bhabishyat would be a fun watch. “From the promos, it seems to be a laughathon.... I didn’t read the whole script because mine was a very small role,” she said.

“I have done an item number and it was hilarious. The film should be fun,” laughed Monami, looking pretty in a short skirt.

Debutant director Datta confided: “I was very nervous while shooting the film. But everyone has done very well.” Bhooter Bhabishyat is targeting an August-end release.
