View Saregama & Vishesh Films Celebrates - Picture GalleryFilmmakers Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt haven't yet equalled the success of their 'Raaz' in any other subsequent production. So, in this season of sequels, what better move than to follow up their most successful production till date?

Though not too many people associated with the 1992 mega hit starring Bipasha Basu and Dino Morea seem interested in doing a sequel, Mahesh is optimistic about 'Raaz 2' and has zeroed in on Mohit Suri as director.

He says he needs neither the old director nor the cast.

'It's Mohit, who directed my productions 'Zehar', 'Kalyug' and 'Woh Lamhe', who thought of the idea for the sequel. He'll be directing 'Raaz 2'. Once he finishes with our current project 'Awaarapan' in Jodhpur, he'll sink his teeth into the 'Raaz' sequel.

'As for the original star cast, why are you presuming that Mohit would want the same players? He has a very strong concept in mind for the sequel. It doesn't require the earlier cast.'

'Raaz 2' will be made with a new cast.

Said Mahesh: 'We're committed to make movies with newcomers.'

The Bhatts have given the film industry talented technicians and actors like Anuarg Basu, Mohit Suri, Emraan Hashmi and Kangana Ranaut.

'We cannot take any credit for their performance,' said Mahesh with uncharacteristic modesty.

'We're privileged to give these youngsters a platform. We're not in this business only to provide a cast for our films. We want to introduce as much talent to the industry as we can. 'Raaz 2' will continue that tradition.'

Director of the original 'Raaz' Vikram Bhatt sings another tune: 'I really don't know... Right now I'm readying 'Red' for release and editing my other film 'Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi'.'

What Vikram leaves unstated is that some years ago he decided to part ways with the Bhatts, and is unlikely to return to the fold.

Download Raaz WallpapersBipasha, who played the disgruntled wife who rescues her husband from the ghost of his psychotic mistress, is also unexcited about a sequel.

'This is the first time I'm hearing about it,' she told IANS.

That leaves the film with the film's leading man Dino Morea who's all for another 'Raaz'.

'Bhatt saab has been talking about a sequel to 'Raaz'. I don't mind doing it, as long as the story is carried forward logically and interestingly. After all sequels are doing stupendously well. And it was one of the biggest hits in recent times.'
