The upcoming film is directed by Hardik Gajjar.
Atithi Bhooto Bhava is gearing up to hit the silver screen soon, with a message that screams how at times even death is not strong enough to stop love in its tracks. The makers recently unveiled the trailer of the upcoming film, which stars Jackie Shroff and Pratik Gandhi in lead roles.
The trailer introduces us to Srikant, a stand up comedian who takes most of his relationships with people for granted. This becomes a source of friction between him and his partner, Netra, as Srikant is unable to understand his partner’s needs. The young man’s life is turned upside down when he meets up with a ghost named Makhan Singh. The latter claims that Srikant was his grandfather in a previous life. The ghost enlists Srikant’s help in finding his lost love, and the duo set off on an adventure together.

Speaking about the film, Jackie said his character of Makhan Singh stood apart from the other roles he did in his career. Calling the experience exciting, he said that he believed that audiences would be captivated to see him in the role as well. “There are many instances and scenes that the audience will connect with. It’s a beautiful romantic movie! I am hoping that the audience enjoys it as much as we enjoyed making it”, said the veteran actor.
Calling the film ‘entertaining’ and ‘full of emotions’, Pratik said that what drew him to the script was the film’s different narrative. “In times when there are thrillers and murder mysteries, Atithi Bhooto Bhava is a light-hearted romantic musical film which will connect with the audiences and make them believe in love again”, he said.
In addition to Pratik and Jackie, the upcoming film also stars Sharmin Segal, Divinaa Thackur, Simran Sharmaand and Prabhjyot Singh in pivotal roles.
Atithi Bhooto Bhava will premiere on ZEE5 on September 23.
