Bali is the next Marathi horror movie that Vishal Furia directs. Furia changed the face of Marathi horror with the horror film Lapachhapi. The film introduced many a new audience to Marathi horror and revived that genre. Now, Furia has announced his next horror film, Bali (The Victim). Currently, the film’s cast includes Swwapnil Joshi. The horror movie releases sometime in 2020. With the announcement hitting the Internet during the Halloween week, its anyone’s guess that the film will hit the theaters around the same time too next year.

Vishal’s Lapachhapi had an interesting journey. The film ran to packed houses for more than 11 weeks. It also won a Filmfare Award and nominations in nine Filmfare categories. Lapachhapi won 25 other international awards. This is the first time Swwapnil Joshi will be part of an out and out horror film. He has earlier been part of some mystery thrillers. Swwapnil is popular for his romantic drama roles as well. So, Swwapnil becomes the next mainstream actor to get into the horror space.
There’s a lot of buzz going on in the horror industry at the moment, with mainstream actors turning towards the genre and mainstream franchises going the horror way. Recently, even Housefull 4, a film that’s an out and out comedy had a reincarnation theme. Jhanvi Kapoor has signed up a horror-comedy, Roohi Afza and Netflix will soon host Zoya Akhtar’s new anthology, Ghost Stories, after Lust Stories.
Here’s wishing everyone involved the best of luck!
