Balaji Motion Pictures is on a roll. With a string of preceding hits and a robust slate of forthcoming movies, the studio has just added another feather to its cap. It has managed to snap hot-shot director Mohit Suri out of the Bhatts' camp.
With the success of ZEHER, WOH LAMHE, RAAZ 2, AWARAPAN, and more recently, MURDER 2, Mohit has been in incredible demand from producers and actors alike. The director who has never done a film for any producer other than the Bhatts, is said to have given his nod to a film with Balaji. He will, of course, continue to direct for the Bhatts' Vishesh Films, his next project being the keenly awaited musical, AASHIQUI 2, being co-produced by T-Series.

CEO of Balaji Motion Pictures Tanuj Garg stated, "Yes, we're in talks with Mohit. He's among the most accomplished young directors today. We will work on the casting once the script is complete."
