Ahead of the release of the film, talking about the similarities between him and his character Srikant, Pratik said, “I don’t see many similarities between Pratik and Srikant. Srikant is a Maharashtrian person. The one similarity between the two is that even Srikant is a stage person. He is a standup comedian. Pratik also started with stage. Rest everything is different. Both come from two different worlds. Srikant’s reactions on love, on the world is completely different from that of Pratik”.
Since the film also deals with the topic of life after death, sharing his take on the same, the actor said, “I don’t know about life after death, but I do believe in the concept of energies. I do realize that I, Pratik Gandhi is an energy which can neither be created nor destroyed”.
`Atithi Bhooto Bhava` is a story of Srikant Shirodkar [Pratik Gandhi], a witty stand-up comedian who takes his relationships for granted including with his beautiful live-in girlfriend Netra Bannerjee [played by Sharmin Segal]. Things take a turn when a Ghost named Makhan Singh [played by Jackie Shroff] enters their lives and asks Srikant to fulfil a promise made by him. Confused Srikant then realises that he has been reborn and that he was Makhan Singh’s – Darji (Grandfather) in 1975. The movie explores the journey of two love stories in different time zones and how Makhan Singh helps and guides Srikant in his relationship with Netra.
