The four of India’s coveted film directors will individually helm stories in the horror/supernatural genre for Netflix again.
Netflix themselves confirmed that Ghost Stories will begin production in August. The four stories will thematically connect to each other and will for sure give you goosebumps.
Filmmaker Karan Johar’s last venture – Lust Stories on the web was much talked about. Starring Vicky Kaushal and Kiara Advani, the story that explored lust did wonder for the actors’ careers. Now, Karan has got Avinash Tiwary and Mrunal Thakur on board for his Netflix’s upcoming anthology Ghost Stories.
Avinash, who received rave reviews from the critics and the audience alike, for his acting debut in Laila Majnu, and Mrunal, who was seen in acclaimed films like Love Sonia, Super 30 and Batla House, will play the leads in the short film that revolves around the horror and supernatural genre.
Both the actors are much known for their work in their previous movies. They are also much appreciated by the critics and they received positive comments.
Karan Johar, who is the definition of promoting emerging talent, will be directing a horror flick for the first time. Both Avinash and Mrunal have proved their talent in their debut films and are looking forward to working with the director.
Ronnie Screwvala and RSVP in association with Ashi Dua of Flying Unicorn Entertainment are the producers of Ghost Stories. This will be the third collaboration between Netflix and RSVP.
Ghost Stories will release exclusively on Netflix. It will stream to 151 million members across 190 countries at the same time.
