Did you check the possible transfer speeds?
BT is not really known to be a file transfer protocol....

should i use a wifi module? can the wifi module make the arduino a host and allow multiple phones to connect to it?

WiFi is definately the better option for file transfers.
Just try it with your phone and transfer a huge pic via BT to another phone.
Clock the time it takes and with the filesize you can see the max transfer rates possible.
Not 100% sure how to connect multiple devices through WiFi as so far I had no use for this, so I never read up on the required modules and code.
