Vikram Bhatt’s next to have Bipasha!
Here’s some news that should bring some respite to Bipasha Basu who was hospitalized on Wednesday. Post-Raaz 3 director Vikram Bhatt has been frantically scripting a film for Bipasha, a sure sign that she is currently perceived as the female Salman Khan at the box office.
After the success of Raaz 3 Vikram Bhatt is writing another horror-thriller for Bipasha in the central role. This project would be launched as soon the scripting is done. In fact Vikram who was supposed to next direct the true-life medical thriller entitled The Ankur Arora Murder Case has handed over the directorial reins of that project to Suhail Tatari who is currently shooting the thriller with K K Menon, Tisca Chopra and Arjun Mathur in the lead.
Vikram has plunged himself headlong into what his team describes as “a thriller with balls and b**bs.”
The problem is how to take Bipasha’s image of the demoniacal diva beyond Raaz 3?
Says a source close to both Bipasha and Vikram Bhatt, “Vikram already has a germ of an idea which he will develop on his holiday with his daughter in London and Scotland next week. It will be an out-and-out grey role and will give Bipasha an even more shocking image than Raaz 3. But no, it isn’t Raaz 4.”
Confirming on Thursday that Vikram Bhatt is indeed writing a film for her Bipasha said, “To be called a ‘Tigress’ is an amazing compliment. I am out of the hospital. I am much better now. I was suffering from viral fever, exhaustion and had a blackout. Hopefully I’ll be fully recovered soon.”
Confirming his plans for Bipasha, Vikram Bhatt said, “I think I owe to myself and to her to do another film with Bipasha right away. It’s amazing how hard she worked on the film and look at the end-results. Like they say, no pain no gain. Both of us have gone through our share of turmoil.”
Vikram is a little baffled at the critical response to Raaz 3, “Horror is still regarded as somewhat chee-chee by the elite class. Never mind. Only I know how difficult it is to put together a massy film. Friends who read my blog and columns every week wonder how I could make such a lowbrow film. But believe me, it’s far tougher to address yourself to the masses then to the intelligentsia. I am not the least apologetic about my partiality to horror specially now when Raaz 3 is my producer Vishesh Films, my leading man Emraan Hashmi, my ‘Tigress’ heroine Bipasha and my biggest hit. We have a lot to be thankful.
