Social networking sites have proved to be a boon for Bollywood. But that is exactly what’s worrying Emraan Hashmi. The actor, who is currently shooting for Raaz 3, has requested his filmmaker-uncle Mahesh Bhatt to stay away from the sets of the production, while the film’s climax scene is being shot.
“He tweets quite regularly. Since the climax is integral to our film, we want to keep it exclusive. If he’s around, he might post a random tweet, which can unintentionally be a spoiler. Although he is very particular, you never know about some unintended detail going out,” says Emraan, who personally explained the situation to Bhatt.
“Even if he does come, I’ve requested him to not tweet. And when I told him, he took it in the right spirit. We are just being cautious.” On other days, the veteran filmmaker has been visiting the sets regularly.
Emraan, meanwhile, is having fun shooting for the sequel. Admitting that horror is his favourite genre, he says, “Raaz 3 has a new format of 3D, which is new to me. I have always been a big fan of graphic animation. We haven’t fixed a date to shoot the climax scene yet as the crew from Hollywood is working on the film right now. We didn’t want too many schedules and inconvenience everyone involved.” The Vikram Bhatt-film is being shot in a start-to-finish schedule. It also stars Bipasha Basu and Esha Gupta.
