Mohit Suri: No horror film before has been as commercial as RAAZ-TMC

RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES is busy minting money and while it has already crossed the business of films like PHOONK and 1920, the surprise successes of 2008, it is also all set to surpass the collections of its predecessor RAAZ. In an industry where horror flicks are yet to make a name for themselves when it comes to commercial viability, the team of RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES boasts of A-Grade names, all of which lends a certain credibility to the project.
''It's a pity that somewhere down the line, horror hasn't been treated as full on commercial genre'', says Mohit Suri who has worked hard towards moving ahead of the trend, ''RAAZ was low budget while no other horror film in recent times has boasted of a recognizable name. On the other hand we made RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES as commercial as possible. We had an A-List cast comprising of Emraan Hashmi and Kangna Ranaut and also ensured that the songs boasted of chartbuster appeal.''
Agreeing that no one before had experimented with horror genre in such lavish manner, Mohit says, ''I think my idea was to make an honest film, a good film. It happened to be a supernatural film is a different thing altogether. Bhatts were looking at making RAAZ a brand and I happened to work on the subject. Tomorrow it could be another director but the brand name of RAAZ will continue to be Vishesh Films identity. Whenever someone would attempt a horror film, the first name that would come to their mind will be RAAZ''
