Mukesh Bhatt is all set to launch his son, Vishesh Bhatt as a director with Murder 3, and says the film is very important for the banner.
Talking to IANS, Mukesh said “Murder 3 will be directed by Vishesh. Next month is the 25th year of Vishesh Films and it marks the debut of Vishesh as a director. This film is as important for us as ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ was for Yashraj Films or Maine Pyar Kiya was for Rajshri. This is a very important film for us”
The ‘Murder’ series has been super successful at the box-office; the first film directed by Anurag Basu was released in 2004, the second came in 2011 and the third will have a new star-cast. Randeep Hooda has replaced Emraan Hashmi and Aditi Rao Hydari will play his love interest.
“Murder 3 will be a different film. Unlike Murder and Murder 2, Murder 3 will not be an erotic film but will have sensuality. Last two films focused much on single screens, Murder 3 will be an up market film for the multiplex as well” said Mukesh Bhatt.
Murder 3 will go on floors in July 2012 and 90% of the film will be shot in Cape Town, South Africa.
