Vikram Bhatt: DANGEROUS ISHQ wasn't designed just for Karisma

Contrary to popular misconception, DANGEROUS ISHQ wasn't originally designed as a 'comeback vehicle' of Karisma Kapoor. The film's script was written well in advance without keeping any particular actress in mind. Later it was pretty much a 'luck by chance' moment for both Vikram Bhatt and the actress that the two ended up collaborating with each other.


"I think everything is just about timing," says Vikram, "Karisma was at that stage in her life where she had decided to do a film. She was willing to give Bollywood a shot and looking for the right script. This was the time when I and my team were sitting with the casting director and Karisma's name popped up. Yes, we were a little doubtful if she would do it but then the consensus was that she would be fabulous in doing a film like DANGEROUS ISHQ. We thought that what would be wrong in asking and who knows, she may just choose to do it. Once we met, everything fell in place and rest, as they say, is history."

He adds though that now that the film is ready, it has turned out to be a dream outing for the Kapoor lady.

"The very strength of DANGEROUS ISHQ is its kick-ass idea," declares Vikram who knows a thing or two about narrating thrillers, as evidenced in his track record over the years, "The part that she gets to play in the film is a dream role for any actor. Karisma too understood that when DANGEROUS ISHQ was narrated to her. Let's give it to her; she comes with good enough experience to gauge a film's strength at the script level itself. Once she agreed in principle, we developed the film a little bit more and were ready to roll."

With Jimmy Shergill and Rajneesh Duggal in the lead roles along with Divya Dutta and Ruslaan Mumtaz, DANGEROUS ISHQ with music by Himesh Reshammiya is a co-production of Dar Motion Pictures, BVG Films and Reliance Entertainment and releases all over on 11th May.
