Post the success of Shraddha Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao's horror-comedy, Stree, the genre became extremely popular with Bollywood filmmakers. This even explains the one too many announcements that we came across in the last couple of months. While horror comedy as a genre was unexplored, the success of Golmaal Again and Stree paved way for its exploration and we are glad for filmmakers are now willing to delve deeper into this territory. There are as many as five horror-comedies currently in the making and their success will determine if we'll further have an influx of these. From Adipurush with Prabhas to Bhoot Police with Arjun Kapoor - A Look at Saif Ali Khan's Upcoming Releases.
From Saif Ali Khan's Bhoot Police to Akshay Kumar's Laxmmi Bomb, Bollywood is currently prepping for the release of multiple horror comedies and we have even curated a list to help you with all the names. Have a look...
Akshay Kumar's Laxmmi Bomb
Akshay's Laxmmi Bomb is a remake of Tamil movie Kanchana and stars Kiara Advani in a lead role. The film is currently slated for an OTT release on Disney+ Hotstar but its release date is still unknown.

Janhvi Kapoor's Roohi-Afzana
After Stree, Rajkummar Rao stars in yet another horror-comedy, Roohi-Afzana with Janhvi Kapoor. The movie is produced by Dinesh Vijan who earlier backed Stree with Shraddha Kapoor. In fact, he aims to make a horror universe with Stree and Roohi-Afzana having a connection.
Saif Ali Khan's Bhoot Police
Saif's Bhoot Police will see him as a ghosthunter along with Arjun Kapoor. The film was earlier announced with Fatima Sana Shaik, Saif and Ali Fazal in the lead. Bhoot Police: Jacqueline Fernandez and Yami Gautam Join Saif Ali Khan and Arjun Kapoor in this Horror Comedy.
Go Goa Gone 2
The sequel to Raj & DK's 2013 release may not have Saif Ali Khan reprising his role of Boris. While an official announcement on its star cast is yet to be made, let's hope the makers are able to rope in the Nawab of Pataudi. Fingers crossed.
