Varma making 'BHHOOoo' to scare his rivalsJun 17, 2011 Subhash K. Jha
Mumbai, June 16 (IANS) Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma is reportedly making "BHHOOoo" to counter producer Nitin Manmohan's plans to make "Bhoot 2" with Vikram Bhatt.
"Yes 'BHHOOoo' will be 'Bhoot 2'. Let's see who can stop me from making it. The title 'Bhooo' comes from that commonly uttered sound by us when we want to scare the daylights out of our enemies. That's what I want to do to my enemies who are now doing a sequel to my film on the sly," said Varma.
"When that sound Bhooo we utter as kids is used in an adult-horror film context, it completely changes in its intention and intensity," said the director who kept mum when asked about the cast of "BHHOOoo".
But sources said that it will star Mahie Gill. Raj Kumar Yadav, who played the lead in "Ragini MMS" and "Shaitan", has impressed the director enough to be cast in "BHHOOoo" as the leading man.
Released in 2003, Varma's "Bhoot", which starred Ajay Devgn, Urmila Matondkar and Rekha, was a hit movie.
"BHHOOoo" will carry forward the story from "Bhoot" with the same characters.
"Let Nitin Manmohan use the title. Ramu will carry the story and characters forward in 'BHHOOoo'. That will be 'Bhoot 2'," said a source.
