Mohit Suri: RAAZ - TMC was always a Kangna film, just like RAAZ was Bipasha's

All those who have seen RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES have stated in unison that the film managed to make an impact not only because of the star presence of Emraan Hahsmi but also the histrionics that Kangna Ranaut demonstrated as a possessed woman.
''But this is hardly something complicated'', says Mohit Suri who has directed her for the second time after WOH LAMHE, ''Just like RAAZ which belonged to Bipasha Basu, the second in the series of the RAAZ brand had Kangna Ranaut as the central protagonist. This goes with the theme of the film. Of course, Emraan Hashmi was always in a full fledged appearance and though some were raising questions if he was present in RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES just to enhance the star value of the film, everyone can see now that he had a much bigger role to play in the film.''
Talking fondly about Kangna, Mohit says, ''There aren't many females around who are not just good looking but also boast of an intelligent mind. Over the last few years that she has spent in the industry, she has understood things well about herself. She has grown with each of her films while my films too have started looking better. We both are growing well together.''
''As for Emraan, he belongs to a new breed of actors altogether'', says Mohit about Emraan who was the senior most of the gang during the shooting of RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES, ''He is someone who would rather do a role than be a hero. That's what makes him interesting. He makes a conscious effort to look different from his earlier films. Look at AWARAPAN or KALYUG or now RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES; he has changed his personality completely for watch of his roles.''
He concludes on a lighter note, ''I guess he has complete faith in me. We thought of giving him a Johnny Depp kind of a look in the film and he was convinced that he could carry it off with aplomb.''
