Zoya Akhtar whose last directorial venture was Gully Boy is back to directing another original film for Netflix - Ghost Stories. The talented Janhvi Kapoor will be an integral part of the chapter in the omnibus that Zoya is directing.
Adding to its compelling slate of Indian originals, Netflix confirmed that Ghost Stories started filming in Mumbai today. This film-omnibus will see four of India’s coveted directors helm individual stories in the horror/supernatural genre. The stories- directed by Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, Anurag Kashyap- will be thematically connected to each other and culminate in a hair-raising end.
Sharing her excitement about making her internet debut with Netflix, Janhvi said, “I am thrilled to work with Zoya as a part of Ghost Stories. I have been a huge fan of her incredible body of work and it’s been a dream to work with her. I play a challenging character and can not wait to bring it to life with this film. I’m a massive Netflix fan which makes this project even more special to me.”
Produced by Ronnie Screwvala and RSVP, in association with Ashi Dua of Flying Unicorn Entertainment, Ghost Stories will launch exclusively on Netflix and will stream to 151 million members across 190 countries at the same time.
Talking about Janhvi's work life, the actress has just finished shooting for the first schedule of her horror- comedy RoohiAfza, along with Rajkummar Rao. She is currently in Georgia shooting for her upcoming film Kargil Girl. The actress shot for a scene while battling 7 degrees of biting cold in Georgia. Besides these, she has also been roped in for Karan Johar’s multi starrer film Takht and Dostana 2.
