Vikram Bhatt is not in the best of mood over the response to
Ankahee at the box-office. In fact, a section of the industry is
blaming the non-happening star cast of the film for the cold
response. While Aftab's solo leads haven't worked in rapid
succession [Suno Sasurjee, Muskaan, Shukriya, Koi Aap Sa]
and Amisha and Esha no longer in the running, Ankahee was
bound to go unnoticed, the soothsayers feel.
"Either the film works or it doesn't. Why blame the actors for
it?" Vikram defends his choice of actors. Does he think a more
bankable cast would've worked wonders? "See, no one forced me to
sign these actors. It was my choice completely. And all three have
delivered their best, so how can I hold them responsible if the
film hasn't worked? Something has gone wrong somewhere, but it's
not the casting," he adds.
Notwithstanding the cold response to Ankahee, there's
no dearth of film offers for Vikram. Reportedly, he is in talks
with T-Series for a film project that is expected to be a musical.
"We are still talking," he states.
