New Delhi: Vikram Bhatt is returning to his favourite genre despite the debacle of `Shaapit` but the director is planning to release his new horror `Haunted` in 3D.

Claimed to be India`s first stereoscopic 3D, the film will release on April 15 and stars new faces – Mithun Chakraborty`s son Mahakshay Chakraborty and Tia Bajpai.

The movie is shot in 3D like James Cameron`s `Avatar` and Bhatt roped in technicians and supports from Canada. 3DCC`s custom 3D camera systems were used exclusively during the production. The technical crew of `Haunted` comprises of
Brent Robinson (Stereographer), Christan Jeams and Cassidey, Micheal Reuben Flax, a release said.

The story has been penned by Bhatt himself and revolves around certain happenings in a house with a secret past and a haunted present. It uses the element of time travel; the story is set in the present but travels to the distant past.

Bhatt claims that the film is his "most expensive and ambitious project till date".
