Netflix stated that the production of Ghost Stories would start in August. This omnibus will see four coveted Indian film directors in the horror / supernatural genre helming individual stories. Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Anurag Kashyap has directed the story. The story will be linked thematically and will culminate in the hair-raising ending.
Ghost Stories will be released on Netflix and will stream simultaneously to 151 million Netflix members across 190 nations. Ghost Stories is the third collaboration between RSVP films and Netflix.
Karan Johar said he has been mortified to watch the horror genre and always stayed very far away from the ghost story. So, it is not only challenging but also exciting to start such a horror genre for him. He further said” Personally, it is 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”.
According to Zoya Akhtar “It is really a pleasure to work with Netflix, for any filmmaker whose story is sacrosanct.” As a writer/director, I flourish on bending genres and inverting tropes, and I'm so excited to try a ghost story”.
Dibakar Bannerjee told that Ghost Story is his first attempt and he is grateful to work with Netflix. He is also very excited to work with such a story.
