How used to were you listening to the ‘F’ se Phantom at the beginning of some really amazing movies? I’d say very. But unfortunately, the four founders- Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, Vikas Bahl & Madhu Mantena of Phantom films have decided to go their seperate ways and have dissolved the company. The production house has made many successful films like Queen, Masaan, Udta Punjab, and Raman Raghav 2.0.
In spite of the dissolution, the four founders of Phantom will continue to work with partners Reliance Entertainment exclusively.The directors now intend to exert their creativity independently and have timely collaborations with each other.
Phantom was a dream, a glorious one and all dreams come to an end . We did our best and we succeeded and we failed. But i know for sure we will come out of this stronger, wiser and will continue to pursue our dreams our own individual ways. We wish each other the best.

Vikramaditya Motwane also announced the development on Twitter and wrote: “Vikas, Madhu, Anurag and I have decided to dissolve our partnership in Phantom and go our separate ways. It’s been the craziest, greatest journey and the most wonderful partnership of my life. My three partners have been my family through thick and thin and I can’t thank them enough for their love and support for the past seven years. I wish them nothing but the best on their individual journeys from here on and hope our paths will cross again in better times.”

Producer Madhu Matena thanked partners Vikramaditya Motwane, Anurag Kashyap and Vikas Bahl for the association and tweeted that Phantom Films is the “best” thing that happened to him. “We had a glorious run for seven years and I guess sometimes even marriages end. I personally believe that Phantom is the best thing that happened to me in my producing career. I want to thank Anurag, Vikram and Vikas for being great partners, mentors and for holding my hand patiently through my dark times,” Madhu Matena tweeted.
