Vikram Bhatt known for the love of horror & thriller stories has given the Indian audiences films like RAAZ, 1920, HAUNTED has now ventured into web series.


Last month the director-producer and screen writer released a web series Maaya which is inspired from erotic novel ‘Fifty Shades of Grey' trilogy on his own web channel ‘VB on The Web'. Post the release of this series Vikram is all set to enthrall the audience with two more web series titled ‘Gehraiyaan' and ‘Spotlight'.

Talking about ‘Spotlight', Vikram said, “In my career of 35 years I have seen lot of glamour. So ‘Spotlight' is a story of a small town girl who comes to Mumbai basically in search of her father and how that turns into a story of revenge and ambition when her father refuses to accept her presence. And since the father is a big star so the girl decides to be a star bigger than her father.”

His other show ‘Gehraiyaan' has super-natural elements in it as Vikram reveals, “It is a story of a surgeon who had a terrible past and a nervous breakdown post which she is trying to come out of it. She moves to another place to start afresh but the spirits follows her there as well. It's a fight of a woman against her own fears and how she emerges victorious. This will be very different super natural experience.”

Vikram clarifies that he has written the series and is not directing any of these shows. Shidhanth Sachdev and Suhail Tatari will be helming these two shows.

Talking about his experience on working for this show the director says that the advantage of working for a new platform is that it is very encouraging and extremely supportive and unintrusive.

When asked if he is concerned about viewership of his shows being restricted as they will be released on new platform, Bhatt says, “My shows will be available on Vuclip's Viu which already has over million subscribers and a successful web series can easily find viewers irrespective of the medium on which its aired.”

On films front the director has started working on the refurbished version of 1921.
