Fatima Sana Shaikh had said, “I really liked the director and I enjoyed watching his film Phobia. I don’t do a film according to the genre that it is. I just go by my instinct with the script. Personally jo mujhe excite karta hai, main wohi karti hoon.”
The film will go on floors by the end of this year. Makers told that Bhoot Police will be a franchise. It will be the first horror comedy to be released in 3D.
Arjun Kapoor’s entry in the star cast of Bhoot Police again started the talks of nepotism on social media. People ranted and criticised the actor on Twitter stating “the ugly output of nepotism”. Saif Ali Khan and Arjun Kapoor’s casting have been questioned.

Third class actor @arjunk26 is getting film after film just because he's a son of a famous producer. This isn't nepotism but favoritism in Bollywood jaha outsiders ko zyade chance tak nahi diye jaate hain. Any gully kooche ka ladka can act and look better than Arjun. #BhootPolice https://t.co/zqxKoSSh81
