Vikram Bhatt’s Next – Shaapith (The Curse)

After making Raaz and 1920, Vikram Bhatt is all set to roll his next project. Shaapith (The Curse) is his next venture which is again a horror film. Vikram wants to make the scariest film ever with all the special effects into it.
The filmmaker says,”Shaapith will make 1920 look like a children’s film. My new project is an adventure-laden horror film. There’s a search for something. It’s not gory, just plain scary.”Like Hollywood horror flicks Poltergeist, Evil Dead and The Exorcist, the filmmaker does not want to take recourse to the usual trappings to depict horror. “All the scary things unfold as part of the adventure.” He adds, “There have been films like The Raiders of the Lost Ark, Romancing The Stone, The Lord of the Rings the elements are all weaved as part of the plot.” He is aware that horror often spells comedy in B-Town. “But luckily, not for me. This time, I want to really scare.”
There are not much details available, but according to the sources the film Shaapith is set in contemporary times and then goes 300 years back. Shaapith features Sa Re Ga Ma Pa anchor Aditya Narayan (son of singer Udit Narayan), Shweta Agarwal (who featured in the Star soap Dekho Magar Pyar Se) and Shubh Joshi (a reality show winner). The film will be shot in Mumbai, Rahasthan and Scotland. Vikram Bhatt always wants to explore new talent and this time he again comes up fresh new faces.
