One of the many films released in the months of August and September which went on to do well at the box office, 1920 stands out since it introduced two newcomers Rajneesh Duggal and Adah Sharma. The film completes 50 days at the box office today and in the process has brought Vikram Bhatt back in the limelight after around a dozen odd back to back flops.
"It is good to have a success to my name", says Vikram Bhatt, "I have realized over a period of time that audience expects my films to have a fear factor. Most of my successful films have carried this flavour."
A period horror film, first of its kinds for Bollywood, 1920 has earned around 11 crores at the box office, hence doing better than some of the other successful films of Vikram Bhatt as well. The film is now ending its theatrical run and should find it's way on the DVDs soon.
"Meanwhile I am neck deep busy into my next project SHAPIT. It is again set in horror genre. The film would act as a launch pad for Aditya Narayan though I am yet to finalize on a girl", says Bhatt.
As per sources, Vikram is looking for a girl who is young with an innocent appeal to her. Though Bhatt's first priority remains to be a newcomer, he doesn't mind taking a girl who has done a film or two in Bollywood, though without being overtly exposed to the audience.
"My main criteria is innocence", adds Vikram, "The role demands that you feel protective towards the girl."
