Helming the project is debutante director Bhanu, and it is jointly produced by Hiroo Yash Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Shashank Khaitan, and Karan.
The makers of the film released the first spine-chilling look poster of the film where the 'Manmarziyan' actor is looking extremely spooky. The 31-year-old is seen peeping out of a broken window of a ship with a face full of bruises. Covering the face of the actor was a fearsome hand with long nails which will leave you in terror.
Vicky shared the first look poster on his Twitter and wrote, "nothing haunts you more than reality. Presenting #Bhoot Part One - The Haunted Ship, directed by Bhanu Pratap Singh. In cinemas 15th November 2019."

Other details related to the film are still under wraps.
