Bipasha Basu is showing interest in working with the Bhatts once again. Recently, while returning from IIFA, the actress met producer Mukesh Bhatt and expressed a desire to work with him for the sequel to Raaz.
Mukesh Bhatt was more than happy to know of her interest as she had played the lead in the first installment, when he met Bipasha at the international airport.
An eyewitness says, "It was a great moment for both of them. Mukeshji is extremely fond of Bipasha and she is like a family member to the Bhatts.
During this brief meeting, Bipasha told Mukesh Bhatt that she wanted to work with him again, specifically in the Raaz sequel."
Raaz ki baat
The grapevine has it that Bipasha is trying to reconcile her friendship with former boyfriend Dino Morea, who might also be working in the sequel.
"Earlier, Bipasha was not keen on working with Dino because she was dating John Abraham. Now that she is single again, she can meet anyone she wants.
In fact, Dino and Bipasha were seen together at the IIFA awards in Yorkshire. They make a nice couple on screen. If they decide to work together again, it will be a bonus for the Bhatts," says the source.
New career move
Meanwhile, Bhatt is seriously pondering making a sequel to Raaz. "The Bhatts want a star like like Bipasha for the sequel, but they weren't sure she would be anymore interested in the film. however, when she spoke to Mukesh Bhatt about the sequel, they were over the moon," says our source.
Mukesh Bhatt has already appointed a set of writers to develop the sequel, and as soon as the script is finalised they will formally approach Bipasha.
But Mukesh admits, "Yes, Bipasha has expressed a desire to work in the sequel to Raaz on our way back from IIFA, but we are working out the details at the moment. She is a protegee of Vishesh Films and we would love to work with her again."
Bhatt, however, denies Dino's presence in the sequel. "We have already finalised Emraan Hashmi as the male lead."
