"When Milind Gadagkar came up with the idea of Phoonk-2, the opening sequence itself made me jump in my seat. The moment I read the entire script, I was convinced that he should direct the film as I was amazed at the clarity he had in detailing the story," Varma posted on his blog www.rgvzoomin.com Dec 4.
"I also decided to make the film in three languages. In Hindi it is going to be called Phoonk -2. In Tamil Bommai-2 because Phoonk has been dubbed in Tamil as Bommai and in Telugu it is going to be called Aavaham meaning The Possession," he added.
The 47-year-old also gave away the plot of the movie.
"If the entire Phoonk story was about how this evil woman who practices black magic was bent upon torturing and killing a little girl in order to make her father suffer and how the father manages to get a tantrik who kills the evil woman, Phoonk-2 starts off with the spirit of the evil woman coming back from the dead and brutally murdering the tantrik," he wrote.
The movie will star Kannada actor Sudeep along with Amruta Khanvilkar and child actress Ahsaas Channa.
