Vikram Bhatt, who has been attempting to spook us with a spate of horror films, has found a new way to mess with our heads. It is heard that when the filmmaker didn't think that his actress was doing a very good job in his film SHAAPIT, he decided to play the witch himself. It boggles the mind to imagine him emitting evil high-pitched laughs in flowing feminine robes. What makes it more surreal is that he also performs a creepy dance.
The buzz is that Vikram was canning shots for SHAAPIT, which marks the debut of newcomer Shweta Agrawal where she was required to dance in a weird manner in a 300-year-old prison. Though she did a lot of retakes, but she still couldn't get it right. That apparently angered Vikram so much that he decided to do the role himself. Much to the surprise of the unit members, the filmmaker donned the garb of a witch and shot for it successfully.
Just for the poor acting skills of the debutant, or who would ever contract a chance to get bewitched with Vikram's undiscovered talents...
