Ravi Chopra's Vivek Sharma directed BHOOTHNATH is about an emotional bond between a young boy Banku (Aman Siddiqui) and a ghost referred to as Bhoothnath (Amitabh Bachchan). Contrary to beliefs, BHOOTHNATH is more than just a story about a friendly 'bhoot'. It is about friendship and bonding of an unusual kind.

The slick promos of the film and popular music director Vishal-Shekhar's apt music is already striking a chord with the target audience, the kids, and will definitely boost the prospects of the film. The release date of 9th May has been carefully chosen by the makers, as the film will get the benefit of the long summer holidays.

As is known, the film also features (after a long time) the hit pair of Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla, who play a couple and parents to the mischievous 'Banku', who befriends the ghost.

Though Shah Rukh Khan only has a guest appearance in BHOOTHNATH, but keeping his superstar stature in mind, he will come at a very important juncture in the film. And that is just before BHOOTHNATH's salvation climax, in order to extract maximum mileage from King Khan's brief but very special appearance.

So during the summer vacations, the children can look forward to a very interesting film, one which will cater to their taste and liking in BHOOTHNATH.
