In the flip-flop of affairs that saw Bipasha Basu's fallout with Bhatts during MURDER 2, the news is that the actress has now once again found herself in their good books for RAAZ 3. All ugliness post her refusal to do a dance number for MURDER 2 is pretty much the story of the past as Bipasha can now be heard going gaga over her reunion with the Bhatts.
''Bollywood has been witness to the fact that so many actors have come and gone but only old warhorses like Yash Chopra, Nadiadwalas, Bhatt brothers and perhaps one or two more have survived for decades. Bipasha would agree as well that her reunion with Bhatts is important because though she has been doing consistently well as an actress, box office success has eluded her with PLAYERS, DUM MAARO DUM & AAKROSH not quite doing well. However with JODI BREAKERS promising to bring in a much needed respite for her, all eyes would now be on RAAZ 3 that is expected to be a huge money spinner,'' says a source.

Talking about the prospects of RAAZ 3, a trade expert adds, ''Everyone associated with the film is going through a great professional run. Emraan Hashmi is at the top of his game, Bhatts are cherishing the success MURDER 2 and even have JANNAT 2 in the pipeline. With Sunny Leone coming on board, they are expecting another blockbuster in JISM 2. On the other hand, Vikram Bhatt too is in great form with HAUNTED doing really well despite relative newcomers. Bipasha is in a win-win state and RAAZ 3 should do a whole lot of good to her.''
No wonder, Bipasha is ecstatic about the reunion and though her last outing each with Vikram Bhatt (AETBAAR) and Bhatt brothers (GUNAAH) are two of her least remembered films, she is hoping for a huge reversal of sorts once the team comes together again for RAAZ 3.
''Of course, I am so looking forward to the film's shooting which is beginning next week,' says Bipasha, 'In RAAZ 3, I am enacting one of the most challenging roles of my career. I am sure the baby steps that I took with Bhatts a decade back during RAAZ would help me do well.''
