Katrina Kaif’s supernatural comedy film “Phone Bhoot” has almost run out of its fuel at the box office. It was out in cinemas over a month ago. The film received mixed reviews from the critics and didn’t find many takers at BO.
Kat was back on the big screens after almost a year, she delivered a superhit film in 2021 in the form of Sooryavanshi which was released amid the pandemic times. However, the film emerged hit because of the face value of Akshay Kumar and the hit director Rohit Shetty.
On the other, besides Katrina Kaif, Phone Bhoot neither has a hit director nor has an actor with a face value who has a pull among the masses. Both Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ishan Khatter are budding actors and still trying to establish stardom.
