    Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Bhoot Returns’ has received an 'A' certificate for its trailer from the Censor Board. Bhoot Returns is a sequel to the 2004 horror film ‘Bhoot’, which had Urmila Matondkar and Ajay Devgn in lead roles. This installment also marks the comeback of Manisha Koirala in Bollywood.

    According to the director, fear works best when it happens where you least expect it and to people with whom everyone can identify. 'Bhoot' dealt with a simple everyday couple who get subjected to a ghost in a haunted apartment. Carrying that tradition forward, ‘Bhoot Returns’ will be about a family trapped in a terrifyingly supernatural situation.The film features a little girl playing with a partly visible spirit in the living room in the wee hours and the scene is being captured on a webcam. Also, Varma has made use of optical illusion to lend a frightening effect to the little girl's image on the movie poster.
