Jacqueline Fernandez and Yami Gautam are joining Saif Ali Khan and Arjun Kapoor in Pawan Kripalani’s Bhoot Police (2021). Soon after it was announced that Kapoor was replacing Ali Fazal in the film, it now seems that Fernandez and Gautam have replaced Fatima Sana Shaikh in the film.
Kirpalani, who made his directorial debut with Ragini MMS (2011), told the Hindustan Times newspaper he was eager to work with the two actresses. “This will be my first collaboration with the entire cast,” he shared. “We need someone to add the craziness to this fun-filled entertainer and both of them will definitely add this magic to the script.”
The director also addressed the casting changes in the film, stating, “The script has gone through several changes after Rameshji [Taurani] and Akshai [Puri] got on board. Saif, Arjun, Jacqueline and Yami perfectly complement each other in the film.”
The film about ghost hunters is an adventure comedy that will be filmed later in Dharamshala, Dalhousie, and Palampur. “We are consulting experts to plan the safety measures for the team. We aim to wrap 80 per cent of the film during the outdoor schedules. The remaining portions will be shot at a set in Mumbai,” producer Ramesh Taurani said.
Fernandez returns again with Salman Khan for Sajid Nadiadwala's Kick 2 (2021), while Gautam will next be seen in Netflix's Ginny Weds Sunny (2020) with Vikrant Massey.
