Vikram Bhatt's 2002 thriller Raaz was a big commercial success and Bipasha Basu has received lots of accolades for her performance in the film. She even got her first Best Actress nomination at the Filmfare for the movie. But the actress could not make it its sequel Raaz - The Mystery Continues, released in 2009.
Now, Bipasha Basu is returning to the Raaz franchise almost after a decade. The B-Town star tweeted, "A big shout out to a dear friend thevikrambhatt! Do welcome him to twitterverse! Looking forward to Raaz 3." However, Vikram Bhatt is also returning to Vishesh Films for Raaz 3.
