Horror is in, as once again Vikram Bhatt, who is easily the most successful man behind the horror genre after 1920 and RAAZ 3 turning into a superhit, is all set to now unleash ‘1920 - EVIL RETURNS’. The lead actors of this film Aftab Shivdasani and Tia Bajpai along with their director Bhushan Patel addressed the media at Movie Time Theatres, Noida.
Tia Bajpai had made her debut with a 3D horror flick ‘Haunted’ under Vikram Bhatt’s banner. While Aftab Shivdasani, Vikram's favourite for years, has just completed his 15 years in bollywood and is once again back on the big screen with this film. Interestingly the film is directed by debutant Bhushan Patel.
“1920: Evil Returns has nothing to do with the first part and it’s a totally unique film,” said the lead actor Aftab Shivdasani at the the press conference of the film at Movie time Theatres, Noida. Asked if he would call the film his comeback, Aftab said, “I don’t know. I mean, I guess I was just waiting for the right opportunity and I got it. So, if it’s a comeback, it’s a comeback, if it’s not a comeback, it’s not a comeback. It doesn’t matter to me as long as it is a good film.”
