Durgavati is presented by Bollywood star Akshay Kumar and filmmaker Bhushan Kumar. The film is the Hindi remake of Telugu horror Bhaagamathie, which featured Baahubali star Anushka Shetty.
It follows a woman imprisoned in a haunted house while being interrogated in a corruption case.
Talking about the film, Bhumi had earlier said, ''Durgavati' is going to take me in horror space. It is the most challenging and special film for me as it is for the first time the responsibility will be on my shoulders. 'Durgavati' is something I'm most pressured and excited about. Akshay sir is a genius, I respect him.''
Produced by T-Series and Vikram Malhotra of Abundantia Entertainment, the film went on floors in late January 2020.
Meanwhile, Bhumi has another horror film in her kitty titled Bhoot - Part One: The Haunted Ship. The film also stars Vicky Kaushal. The film is directed by Bhanu Pratap Singh and jointly produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar, Apoorva Mehta and Shashank Khaitan.
