Kirpalani said in a statement, “This is a story I've been living with for a very long time. Couldn't have found better collaborators than Saif, Ali, Fatima and most importantly Fox Star to bring this to life. This is going to be a fun, spooky ride!”
Rucha Pathak, Chief Creative Officer, Fox Star Studios, commented on the big announcement in a statement saying, “We are excited to delve into a new world of technology and story-telling with Bhoot Police.

The Bhoot Police trio will collaborate with each other for the first time. Having worked within the horror and thriller genres in films such as Phobia, Ragini MMS and Darr @ the Mall, Kirpalani may bring something new to the table with the Bhoot Police. The release has not been revealed by the makers yet.
