Looking forward to the release of 'Raaz 3', filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt says the movie dares to touch the fear of falling down from heights of success.
"Every artist is haunted by the fear which follows him. When he reaches stardom, he gets scared of losing it all. He wants to always be at that height. We are all prisoners of fame. 'Raaz 3' dares to touch this fear which entertainers live with," he said.
Set to release on September 7, the movie is the third instalment in 'Raaz' series after 'Raaz - The mystery continues' (2009) and 'Raaz' (2002, with Bipasha playing the role of an actress whose career is on a downfall.
Calling the film a dangerous cocktail, producer Mahesh Bhatt, said, "The film may not seem realist, but has been sourced out from the heart. The first trailer of Vikram Bhatt's directorial venture 'Raaz 3' was held here late last night in a spooky ambience as the cast of the film, Emraan Hashmi recited a dialogue and Bipasha Basu made an entry tearing the poster.
This romantic-horror film marks the comeback of Bipasha with Bhatt camp and 'Raaz' series. The dusky beauty will be seen portraying emotions of revenge and jealousy in the third part of the film.
"We all go through struggle but we choose not to show it. But it is important to address it at times and connect. This is why I agreed to do this character," Bipasha said.
"Initially on the sets of the film, I was lost because the scenes were so intense. I did not know how to reach the character. I haven't allowed myself to feel this way ever. But I had to let it go and finally I did," she added.
Bipasha, who got her first hit film with 'Raaz', said she is happy to be working with the production house again. The blue-eyed boy of Bhatt camp, Emraan Hashmi, expressed hope that the film will do well at the box office.
"I want all my films to do well. This film should have a bigger opening than 'Jannat 2' as well," Emraan said.
Meanwhile, even as Adhyayan Suman did two Bhatt movies - 'Raaz- The Mystery Continues' and 'Jashnn', his father Shekhar Suman recently said that he felt the biggest mistake his son committed was to start with Bhatt camp.
To this, producer Mukesh Bhatt, "Only a spastic like Shekhar Suman can say something like that. His son has only one successful film which is 'Raaz 2'."
While, Mahesh Bhatt chose to play safe, saying, "I don't think we should use this platform to hurl abuses at each other. We should not create conflicts. He (Shekhar) is my colleague, I have respect for him."
"If he chooses to disrespect me that is his privilege, but as an elder, I will not allow anyone to disrespect Shekhar or Adyayan. They are a part of this journey and if they have bitterness with us, we will sort it out," Mahesh added. PTI
