“Of course I am terribly excited, and also very enthusiastic to share screen space with Siddhant (Chaturvedi) who is a friend of mine,” Ishaan told IANS, adding that the script “was something that really convinced me to do it”.
“Phone Bhoot” is a horror comedy co-starring Katrina Kaif and Sidhant Chaturvedi, and Ishaan describes it as a laugh riot.
“It is a laugh riot. Horror comedies have been done before but this is an exceptionally funny film. It’s very meta in its humor, it’s a film that doesn’t go from gag to gag. It has a funny and interesting story but it’s also just hysterical throughout,” he claimed.
“For me, this is my first in the comedy genre and I am very excited because it is so different from everything I have done before.”
Ishaan says the film will help him explore himself. “It will push me into a totally different space as an actor, I was looking for something like this. I have done a lot of work that has been intense. This will be a new fun direction to explore,” he said.
