Mahesh Bhatt gave Bipasha Basu a memorable breakthrough in Bollywood ten years back. Now Bipasha will do the latest version of ‘Raaz’ series. Bhatt says that Bipasha will be donning a new avatar in the latest edition of Raaz.
Though Bipasha started her Bollywood career with ‘Ajnabee’ but got a much needed fame only after Raaz. Bhatt visited the sets of newest Raaz and is happy the way Vikram is shaping up the movie under his direction.
Talking to a tabloid Bhatt reveals, “Bipasha is going to reinvent herself with `Raaz 3`. She will reprise her acting skills and will dazzle the screen. We are happy that she is back with us and don`t want to miss the opportunity to bring the best out of her. She did a fabulous job in `Raaz`, which gave her the due recognition in the industry.”
Mahesh Bhatt has given up direction after Sanjay Dutt’s ‘Kartoos’ in 1999 and has no plans to behind the cameras. He has churned out many meaningful films like ‘Arth’, ‘Saaransh’ and ‘Zakhm’.
Bhatt was in Delhi for a book launch `Doosra Rukh’ a book by Aruna Mukim. He says, “I am bored of making films. I have given my 12 years to the industry and always felt that you are not a human being if you don`t have a story to tell. After all these years, I am concentrating on making stars out of normal actors and churning out good stories from new filmmakers.”
Bhatt has recently launched Sunny Leone, the adult star, in the B town and is giving new look to Kunal Khemu in his forthcoming movie ‘Blood Money’. He says, “There are some faces in the industry which needs to be nurtured. They have immense talent but they are not getting right scripts. Sunny Leone and Kunal Khemu are such actors. Sunny is working hard for the film and I have complete faith on her that she will come out as a surprise package.”
Mahesh Bhatt turned a producer in 1987 and founded ‘Vishesh Films’ along with his brother Mukesh Bhatt. The banner is known for making movies that have boldness intact to them.
Mahesh who is awaiting his films like ‘Hate Story’, ‘Dangerous Ishq’ and ‘Jannat 2’ releases feels that new genres are welcomed in the film industry. He says, “Erotic component in the films has increased for past few years. The world wide web has changed the way of our society and paved a way to the bold content in films too.”
He is also planning a sequel to ‘Aashiqui’ a hit of 1990. His movies are based on his personal life, and this one is no exception. “There is a partial reference of my life in this film but director Vishal Mahadkar is writing a new script,” he signs off.
