Mumbai, July 26 : Bollywood director Ram Gopal Verma in Mumbai talks about his upcoming film 'Phoonk' that revolves around supernatural theme.
Azam Khan and Praveen Nischol are producing the film.
Verma's film has a whole new set of star cast, which include Sudeep, Amruta Khanivilkar, Shrey Bawa, Kenny Desai and Lillete Dubey.
Some of best works of Verma include Rangeela, Satya, Bhoot, Company, Sarkar, Shiva, and Sarkar Raj. Not all of his movies were a success. Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag, based on the Bollywood classic Sholay, was one of the biggest failures of 2008.
Film 'Phoonk' deals with original and high interest topic of black magic and fear, which Verma has explored in his unique way.
Speaking on what this film is about, Verma said, "The film explores the psychological state of a man who does not believe in black magic and it is not so much about the black magic as about that psychological state."
Verma further said, "I have put an ordinary family in extraordinary situation, the audiences should identify themselves with 'this family'. This family can be their family (Audience's family), their neighbours family. I wanted the family to be as natural as possible. There are no commercial items in this film, it is about black magic it is about fear."
The film 'Phoonk' is slated for an August 22 release.
