Amitabh Bachchan in a still from Bhoothnath

Filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari, who will direct the sequel to the 2008 release “Bhoothnath”, says they will start shooting once they get dates from Amitabh Bachchan, who played a ghost in the original.

The “Chillar Party” fame director Tiwari said: “We will start shooting once we get Amitabh Bachchan’s date. He is busy with his other commitments. So once we get Big B’s dates, we will start rolling. The film is in its early stage.”

Directed by Vivek Sharma, “Bhoothnath” featured boasts of Juhi Chawla, Shah Rukh Khan and child artist Aman Siddiqui.

When quizzed if he will take the story forward, the director says, “It will be an altogether  fresh story. We are not taking ahead the previous story,” he said and added that “we are contemplating with other titles as well. We are yet deciding the star cast.”
