As Lust Stories reaches international heights, Netflix announces the release date of another anthology film by the director quartet- Anurag Kashyap, Dibakar Banerjee, Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar. Yes, Ghost Stories has a premiere date, and it’s the New Years!
Thematically connected to each other, Ghost Stories, as the name suggests, will have four individual stories helmed by these coveted directors with horror/supernatural at its core. Featuring Mrunal Thakur, Janhvi Kapoor, Sobhita Dhuliapala, and Gulshan Devaiah, Avinash Tewari, Kusha Kapila, Surekha Sikri, Sukant Goel, and Vijay Verma in vital roles. Produced by Ronnie Screwvala and RSVP, in association with Ashi Dua of Flying Unicorn Entertainment, Ghost Stories will be available for streaming on Netflix on 1st January 2020.
Here’s what the directors had to say about the movie:
Zoya Akhtar said: “Working with Netflix is a delight for any filmmaker whose story is sacrosanct. As a writer/ director, I thrive on bending genres and inverting tropes and I am so looking forward to attempting that with a ghost story.”
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.”
Karan Johar added: “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! Personally, it’s 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!”
Anurag Kashyap said, “I am really looking forward to challenging myself to make something that I have never attempted before. Also, I have never prepared so much for anything before.”
