Ace film-maker Vikram Bhatt, who is well known within the industry circles as a 'Horror Specialist', is set to take forward his hit Raaz franchise with its fourth edition Raaz 4. He will go behind the camera to direct the movie.
Bhatt, who directed the original and the third instalment of the franchise, says the cast is yet to be decided.
At the promo launch of Happy Journey, when asked if he is directing Raaz 4, Vikram said, "Yes, I am. We are still working on the script and the cast is also not decided yet."
While the first edition of Raaz featured Dino Morea, the second and the third sequels had Emraan Hashmi in the lead role. In terms of female leads, Bipasah Basu featured in the original and the third part, while Kangana Ranaut joined the cast of Raaz 2.
As far as horror themes are concerned, Vikram has been a trendsetter, with films like Raaz, Raaz 3D, 1920, and Haunted 3D to his credit.
When asked about the combination of horror and sex in the latest horrex flick Ragini MMS 2, Vikram said: "Horror and sex have always gone together as a genre. It has always been, even Raaz was that."
However, more than the lead actress Sunny Leone, Vikram attributes the success of the film to director Bhushan Patel and producer Ekta Kapoor for the success of the film.
"I would like to give the credit to the director and the producer here. But of course, Sunny Leone is a part of it, her sexuality does help... didn't help Jackpot though," he quipped.
Bhatt is currently busy with the making of Creature 3D, said to be a monster science fiction film.
