Actor Manisha Koirala, who was last seen in the National Award-winning film, I Am, will essay a prominent role in Ram Gopal Varma’s sequel to his 2003 horror film, Bhoot. The sequel is said to be called — BHHOOoo.!
“Manisha has said yes for the movie. It will be a sequel to Bhoot. Manisha is playing one role in the movie, but it is a very prominent role,” says Varma.
While Bhoot narrated the story of a couple in a haunted apartment, Varma says the sequel is about a six-year-old child.
“The sequel to Bhoot has a different storyline. The film basically revolves around a six-year-old girl. (But) I can’t talk much about the film now,” says Varma.
The shooting of the film has already started with a young girl named Allayna. Southern actor Madhushalini is also a part of the cast, but the lead male actor for the film is yet to be finalised. The sequel will be shot using 3D technology. It is slated to be released by August end.
The original Bhoot featured actors Ajay Devgn and Urmila Matondkar.
In recent interviews, Koirala said that she is reading scripts and has been in the industry long enough to not pick up the wrong project.
