Delhi: Aftab Shivdasani, who plays a poet in the horror flick ‘1920-Evil Returns’, will be mouthing poetry penned by none other than the film’s producer Vikram Bhatt, who is quite the closet poet.
While the producer-director had toyed with the idea of publishing a book on his poems, he was very keen on using excerpts in the film, especially since the lead plays the character of a poet.
Originally penned in English, the lines have been translated by writer Sanjay Masoom in Hindi to fit into the film’s context.
Says a source “Vikram Bhatt has donned the hat of a writer for several films and writing has been a huge passion of his. He even has a collection of poems he has penned, accounts of his personal experience. A few excerpts from them have been used in the film since they perfectly fit the situations in the movie.”
Talking about how the sequel will be entirely different from the first film of the franchise says producer Vikram Bhatt, “We have seen that when we make sequels, the story should be different, actors should be different. Nothing should be similar except the name. Since we make such films here, we have continued with that trend. ‘1920: Evil Returns’ has nothing to do with the first part and it`s a totally unique film.”
‘1920-Evil Returns’ hits the theatres on November 2,2012.
