After Sunny Leone, Aditi signs Bhushan's film

Bhushan Patel is amazed at the response fans have given to Ragini MMS 2. "My first directorial 1920-The Evil Returns was a hit, this one is an even bigger hit," he says.

But he's not resting on his laurels. He's been signed by Kumar Mangat to direct another horror film. "But this one won't be a horrot (horror+ hot) flick like the Ragini Part 2 but more on the lines of my first film which was a classic period horror romance. It's a love triangle with a twist."

Bhushan wards off the inevitable query about repeating Sunny Leone, pointing out that while she was a perfect fit for Ragini MMS 2, she would be miscast in this one. "We've approached Aditi Rao Hydari and we're hoping for the nod," he says. The rest of the cast is yet to be finalised.

While his first film was shot in Sweden and the next one in a bungalow in Dahanu, this one will start in Mumbai and in South India. "Ghost stories are usually associated with hill stations, I want to shoot this on the backwaters of Kerela. I hope to roll by the first week of May," he reveals.

Meanwhile there's been talk that the second half of Ragini MMS 2 was reshot with Antony D'Silva. Bhushan laughs off the rumours saying, "If that was true would my name have figured in the film's posters or credits? Tony is a friend of producer Ekta Kapoor so he dropped by on the sets. But he wasn't reshooting the film. Ekta liked the first half but she had some creative inputs for the second half. We incorporated the changes du-ring the ongoing schedule."

So why was the film delayed? Bhushan admits they weren't ready with the film in October and in December they didn't want to come up against big films like R....Rajkumar.

"Besides 2013 hadn't been a lucky year for Ekta so we decided to move to 2014. It was Ekta's call and I didn't mind. At the end of the day what's important is that we have a hit."
