Ishaan earlier shared his love for the horror comedy genre. Speaking to IANS, he said “As an audience I love the horror comedy genre because the plot gets twisted every now and then, which makes the film an interesting watch. If I look at it from a performer’s point of view, so many shades of emotion are rolled into one character. Also, I have to say that our film ‘Phone Bhoot’ is directed by Gurmeet Singh.”
“It is interesting that Gurmeet is one of the directors of web series ‘Mirzapur’, and his show released on the same day as our show ‘A Suitable Boy’. People loved ‘Mirzapur’ and also ‘A Suitable Boy’. So obviously the next thing that should have happened is we are working together! This is so cool!” he had added.
