The report quotes a source stating, “The team felt another spirit would add to the narrative. So, it will be Rooh Baba versus the two ghosts played by Madhuri and Vidya. By bringing the two leading ladies together for the first time on screen, the makers have played a trump card.”
It added that the film is expected to go on floors in March. The same report hints that Kartik’s ex-girlfriend Sara Ali Khan may replace Kiara Advani opposite him in the threequel. However, it added, “The discussions are at a nascent stage. Nothing is confirmed yet.”
