Bhaag Johnny: Vikram Bhatt turns actor, will play a genie

Director Vikram Bhatt says he lacks the acting acumen and it was because of his grey hair that he got to play a genie in Bhaag Johnny. "I think my white hair got me the role. I think acting is boring because you have to sit for a long time."

Known for directing-producing thriller and horror films, Vikram will be facing the camera for the first time in his career. He will be seen as a genie in Bhaag Johnny, a thriller.

"I think my white hair got me the role. I think acting is boring because you have to sit for a long time. And being a director I am used to running around and being busy on sets. I lack the actor software," Vikram told .

The filmmaker was not keen on acting in the film, but director Shivam Nair managed to convince him to play the interesting character.

"It is a spiritual thriller...it is about a genie who gives the hero a boon who can live two lives. In one he can murder and in other he cannot murder. I am the person who gives him the boon," Vikram said.

Vikram is also co-producing the film with T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar. The film stars Kunal Khemu in the lead.
