Maverick film-maker Ram Gopal Varma returns to the horror format with Phoonk 2, the sequel to the successful Phoonk, which opens tomorrow. In fact, the this Friday also marks the release of Ahmed Khan and his wife Shaira's film production debut Paathshaala, which features Nana Patekar, Shahid Kapoor and Ayesha Takia Azmi in key roles.
While there's no similarity between Paathshaala and Phoonk 2, since the two films belong to different genres, RGV is confident that Phoonk 2 would not get overpowered by the stars in the other film (Paathshaala). Like always, RGV makes a witty remark, "The crow is my hero and the doll, the heroine." If you jog your memory, RGV had used the pic of a crow in the promotional campaign of Phoonk. In Phoonk 2, Phoonk row as also a doll... a sinister doll, in fact.
Says Sudeep, the lead man of Phoonk and Phoonk 2, "It's not right to compare the two films, but I genuinely feel that Phoonk 2 is far more scary than the first part." Meanwhile, there's talk in the industry circles that RGV plans to continue with the Phoonk series.
Reportedly, Phoonk 3 will be made in 3D. RGV, is it true?
