If ‘horror’ is your genre, you would be delighted to know that Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap are all set to come together for Netflix’s ‘Ghost Stories’.
Each filmmaker will spin a story that will weave the end. The production of Ghost Stories is set to begin in August.
Karan, who is extremely enthusiastic about the project said, “I have always been mortified to watch the horror genre and have always stayed very far away from any ghost story! So to direct one is not only hugely challenging but also exceptionally exciting.”
He further added, “Personally it’s an uncharted terrain and I couldn’t have chosen a better platform and a more eclectic collective to exhibit my fear of ghosts and ghost stories! This one’s going to be a nightmare for this dream team.”
Dibakar Bannerjee said, “Horror as a genre has incredible room to experiment and explore. Ghost Stories is my attempt to do that, and it’s great to have a partner in Netflix with whom I have the freedom to tell the story as envisioned. Ultimately we are entertainers, and there’s nothing like a spine-chilling story scaring the devil out of us while we’re safely tucked in our sofa munching fries hugging a warm body.”
Ghost Stories is the third collaboration between Netflix and RSVP. Produced by Ronnie Screwvala and RSVP, in association with Ashi Dua of Flying Unicorn Entertainment, Ghost Stories will release exclusively on Netflix and will stream to 151 million members across 190 countries at the same time.
