Having done several horror movies in his career, filmmaker Vikram Bhatt is all set to return to the work with 1921, featuring Zareen Khan.
The movie will be set in a school of music in North London and will depict the Hate Story 3 star as a music student.
Bhatt says to PTI “As of now we have finalized only Zareen, she is playing the female lead. We are looking for one male actor for the other role. I liked her in ‘Hate Story 3’ and I genuinely believe she is the most undervalued actress we have,”
He said “1920 films are set in a period time zone and they require a certain body type for actors. The body type, body language should be such that they look right in any era. Zareen, that way, is timeless. She is perfect for the role,”
The director of Love Games wrote the recently released 1920 London, the third part of the 1920 franchise and will kick start his own banner – Loneranger Productions – with 1921.
Bhatt said 1921 will show a strong romantic premise which was lost in the last two instalments of 1920.
He further said , “It (the film) is like 1920 2.0. There is nothing wrong with the 1920 franchise, but I thought why not better it. In the last two parts, there was less romance as compared to the first one. 1921 will have strong romance and love story,”
The director had also done 1920 and wrote 1920 Evil Returns and 1920 London, which was Sharman Joshi starrer movie.
The filmmaker, who has worked in horror series like Raaz and has been connected with films like Haunted 3D, Shaapit and Creature 3D, says his new movie will focus more on grabbing your heart along with great scariness.
“The film will have great scares and great love. Horror is the easiest thing to create but what I want to give the audience is a strong story. I want to grab your heart with this film and not just frighten,” he added
The film will go on floors this November and will hit the theaters in 2017.
