Aditya is an Engineer on a cruise line, and lives a wealthy lifestyle along with his wife, Anjali, and a school-going son, Aman. They decide to re-locate to Goa and rent a bungalow, 'Nath Villa', that was built in 1964. They are made aware that the bungalow is haunted, but they disregard this. While Aditya returns to work, Aman is enrolled in St. Francis High School, and Anjali hires a drunken thief, Anthony, as a helper to clean the house. Shortly thereafter Aman starts getting in trouble in school, and is reprimanded by Principal J.J. Irani. To make matters worse, he also starts making up stories of a new friend 'Bhoothnath'. Anjali disregards this, but during a stage performance, a local resident tells her that Aman is mimicking the former owner of Nath Villa. Anjali will soon find out that indeed the bungalow is haunted by it's former owner - Kailash Nath - who has taken a morbid liking to Aman, and will not permit them to vacate the house under any circumstance. Can young Aman find the cause of Kailash Nath's discontentment and set his soul free once and for all?

Factual Mistake
The shadow of the camera dolly is visible over Banku's backside, when he's looking up in the stars for Bhoothnath.
The name of the child "Banku" is picked from an incomplete script "Banku Babur Bandhu" written by Satyajit Ray.

The original thought of this movie was conceived by Director Vivek Sharma and his close friend Amrita Basu, who were discussing art of living, spirituality and life in general.

After writing the movie concept Director Vivek Sharma contacted his close friend Juhi Chawla who was excited with the idea and approved of being part of the movie.

Interestingly B.R Chopra wanted to make a film called 'Ek Aur Masiha' with Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Juhi Chawla in the late 90's but the film was never made. However, the whole cast eventually signed for this film.

Adesh Srivastav, Anu Malik, and A.R Rahman were approached to compose the film's score.

'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Little Champs' music contestants Tanmay Chaturvedi, Aamir Haafiz, and Mussarat Abbas have all sung a song in this film.

Vivek Sharma approached Shah Rukh Khan initially, who was keen on producing the film too, when the director informed him that BR Chopra will be producing it Shah Rukh Khan gladly signed on to be part of the script due to his association with Vivek Sharma.
