Bips comes aboard on the Bhatt camp again with ‘Raaz 3’
Mumbai: Bipasha Basu’s claim to fame was her two films that came from the Bhatt camp in the beginning of her career- ‘Jism’ and ‘Raaz’.
But reportedly the Bong bombshell had angered Mukesh Bhatt after refusing the lead role in ‘Murder 2’ which was later given to Jacqueline Fernandes.
Apparently the reason behind her not being able to take up the offer was date issues, she even refused to squeeze out dates for an item number.
However the differences have been sorted now. And their team is all set to make a comeback with ‘Raaz 3’.
Bipasha signed for the lead role in Raaz 3. The film will be directed by Raaz director Vikram Bhatt and will be made in 4D.
Mukesh Bhatt said to a daily, "It is a homecoming for both Bipasha and Vikram. Yes, we did have issues earlier but, in a family, there are always different point of views that arise till the members realise that amendments need to be made."
"This is where they started and this film brought recognition to both Vikram and Bipasha," he added.
When Mukesh was asked who made the first move, he said, "Being in the same business, we keep bumping into each other. Bipasha expressed a desire to work with us again and she loved the Raaz 3 script. It is a very challenging and powerful role for her."
Vikram, who will be directing the said, "Bipasha is a very important part of the team that created Raaz as a brand.I am happy to be working with her again and hope to create the same magic with the already heady pair of Emi (Emraan Hashmi) and Jackie (Jacqueline Fernandes)."
Bips confirmed to a tabloid, "I have a long and fruitful relationship with Vishesh films. I am very fond of both Maheshji and Mukeshji.
They have given me two of my best films of which, Raaz, my second movie, was a golden jubilee hit. It was only a matter of time before we worked together."
Talking about the film, she said, "My role in Raaz 3 seems to be a very challenging one and the director is not only very good at his craft, but has also been a friend for a long time." "The thought of working with my own people gives me a high. It is a terrific combination," she added.
