Vikram Bhatt's HAUNTED 3D which has earned the status of India's first stereoscopic 3D film is also the only film in India to be dubbed in Spanish.
HAUNTED 3D, starring Mithun Chakraborty's son Mahakshay Chakraborty and Tia Bajpai, reaches out to diverse audiences with its multilingual versions in - Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and English. Reportedly, it was the market research that led Bhatt to dub the horror flick in Spanish.
According to Vikram there is a huge market for horror films in the Spanish/Latin American belt and they want to tap them. Though initially the filmmaker decided to include Spanish subtitles but later discovered it was really tough to do subtitles in a 3D film. So the move was rather dubbed in Spanish.
To get the Spanish version started, Bhatt will be flying to Toronto next month to choose the dubbing artistes. He added, "I want the voices in Spanish to match with the original voices of my actors".
The dubbed Spanish version will release two months after the Hindi release.
