It has been reported that producer Ramesh Taurani and director, Pavan Kripalani are already planning to spin Bhoot Police into a franchise with the two leads, Saif and Arjun, returning as ghost hunters.

While the makers had kept an open ending to hint at the possibility of a sequel, we hear that the team has already started early conversations on Bhoot Police 2. The idea is to continue the franchise bringing horror and humor together and making the ghost hunter face new challenges in different terrains of India,” reported a source close to the development.
The source further added that the shrewd elements of two characters, backed with the elements of blind faith and exorcism, makes it an exciting preposition for the team to spin it into a franchise. Bhoot Police might mark second franchise of Ramesh Taurani after Race. “It’s still some time for Bhoot Police 2 to take off. In-fact, there is a high possibility of Race 4 happening before the horror comedy, as the scripting of the action thriller is already going on in full swing,” the source was quoted saying.
Ramesh Taurani, has also confirmed the development saying, “Yes, we are definitely planning a sequel to Bhoot Police. The audience is enjoying the first part and I am looking forward to take it forward with the team.”
