'It's all about loving your family', could well have been a phrase coined by Karan Johar. However for Bhatts, the mantra seems to be 'It's all about within your family'. Keeping their fundas clear that their movie making business stays on within the household, they are continuing the trend of grooming people closest to them. While the preferred ones are definitely those who share family ties, the latest entrant is their 'ghar ka baccha' Vishesh, on whom their company's name has been coined.
Informs our source, "Just like Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra, even Mukesh Bhatt has directors working exclusively for him once they get launched by the production house. Mohit Suri is their most successful find, Kunal Deshmukh has shown his talent in JANNAT and now their latest find Vishal Mahadkar too has been signed up for more films after BLOOD MONEY. With Vikram Bhatt bringing his experience and returning to the camp with RAAZ 3, the production house has only strengthened. Now add Vishesh to the list." CHECK OUT: BLOOD MONEY rescheduled to release on 30th March
With the arrival of Vishesh, the competition is only expected to get tougher within the Bhatt fold since there most of the aforementioned in-house directors are already making their presence felt. Meanwhile Vishesh's film goes on floors later this year and as is the tradition at the production house, this too would be an out and out dramatic affair.
Confirms Mukesh Bhatt, "Yes, Vishesh is currently writing a script and would start his film by end of this year. However his grooming had started a decade ago itself when he assisted Vikram on RAAZ. Post that he went to New York University to learn filmmaking and has now come back after finishing that course. He is charged up and raring to go now."
We wonder how Mohit, Kunal and Vishal are thinking about this in-house challenge though!
