Bhumi Pednekar will soon be seen opposite Vicky Kaushal in Dharma Productions' horror project Bhoot Part One — The Haunted Ship. The first instalment of the franchise will be directed by Bhanu Pratap Singh. Singh has earlier worked with Shashank Khaitan on Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014) as an assistant. The makers had released a poster of the film on 10 June.

Speaking about stepping into the horror genre and working with Kaushal, Pednekar said in a statement, "Vicky is one of the most talented actors of today and it’s lovely working with him. It’s a genre that both of us haven’t explored before but I was quite thrilled to experiment with. As an actor, I love to experiment, love to take risks."
