Vikram Bhatt speaks about the trend of biopics in Bollywood
Biopics are surely something many filmmakers are trying their hands on. It has become a new trend in Bollywood. Every year we get to see at least two to three biopics on the big screen. Recently, while talking to a news agency, director Vikram Bhatt spoke about this trend of biopics in Bollywood.
The filmmaker said, “Of late, we have become an industry that churns out only biopics. From the unknown guys to the known, everyone’s story is up for grabs.” Well, Vikram Bhatt himself is yet to direct a biopic.
Talking about his movies, the director’s last release ‘Raaz Reboot’ failed to make a mark at the box office and even received negative reviews from the critics. He is currently busy with the shooting of ‘1921’ which stars Zareen Khan and Karan Kundrra in the lead roles. The movie is being shot in the UK, and it is slated to release on January 12, 2018. Vikram Bhatt is known for his horror movies, and that’s why we are eagerly waiting for ‘1921’. (Also Read: When Vikram Bhatt wanted to commit suicide post failed affair with Sushmita Sen)
Apart from movies, Vikram Bhatt is also quite active on digital platform. His recent web series titled ‘Hadh’ was released a few days ago. Talking about it, he said, “‘Hadh’ is the story of power and greed and to what limit people can go to achieve it. I believe almost everyone on this planet has a selling price. Some sell cheap and the rest hold back…. ‘Hadh’ is Shakespearean in its construction. A dying king and three young aspirants for the throne, so to speak. Lies, betrayal, and murder is on the menu.”
