Mahesh Bhatt had problems over ‘Raaz: The Mystery…’ trailerNovember 8th, 2008 - 7:22 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Nov 8 (IANS) The first trailer of Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s next project “Raaz: The Mystery Continues” is doing the rounds, but the producer is said to have had creative differences while finalising it with director Mohit Suri.Mohit said: “It wasn’t a fight, though there was a lot of argument over it. Being creative people we do have very strong points of view on how it should be. Like (Mahesh) Bhatt saab wanted a trailer with dialogues whereas I thought we should just focus on strong visuals and musical score.”
“Raaz: The Mystery Continues”, is scheduled to release Jan 23 next year and stars Emraan Hashmi, Adhyayan Suman and Kangana Ranaut.
After much brouhaha over the trailer, the filmmakers are happy with the final outcome and the response they have received for it.
“We were all anxious about the first look of the film. However, when we saw it for the first time ourselves in the preview theatre, we knew we had cracked it,” said Mohit.
The director, who is busy with the post-production stage of the film, says: “The realisation of people’s expectations from the movie has just set in so I am making sure the film scares them as much as the trailer did.”
Though the film shares the title with the Bipasha Basu-starrer, “Raaz”, which was also produced by Bhatt’s Vishesh Films, the producers claim that the film is not a sequel.
Apparently, it took Mohit almost six months just to convince his uncles Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt to let him direct “Raaz: The Mystery Continues” despite the fact that he has directed films like “Kalyug”, “Zeher”, “Woh Lamhe” and “Awaarapan”.
“Looking at the success that ‘Raaz’ achieved, their hesitation was quite obvious, something which I was expecting,” said Mohit.
