Vikram Bhatt has just returned from UK having completed his film, ‘Ghost,’ which is inspired by a newspaper article about how a British court allowed a matter involving spirits to be tried.
Bhatt said in an interview, “The article caught my eye because it threw up an interesting question: How does one prove the presence of spirits in a court of law? I know it’s hard for most people to believe in the supernatural world, but I know from first-hand experience that the realm exists and for me it is a reality.”
“The concept itself is novel. Karan Khanna, a politician of Indian origin in the UK, is accused of killing his wife. He tells his lawyer that a spirit committed the murder and should be tried. Where have you seen that before?” he added.
The film will introduce a new pair, TV actress Sanaya Irani as defence lawyer Simran Singh, and Shivam Bhargav as Karan Khanna, reports the Mumbai Mirror. “Sanaya has an emotional quotient that works well in a complex role while Shivam’s shyness adds a layer to the to the victimised Karan,” explains Bhatt.
The movie releases later in Feburary. Stick with BizAsiaLive.com for more updates.
