  • How RGV came up with 'Bhoot Returns'


    Tired of waiting for Nitin Manmohan to part with 'Bhoot 2' title, RGV chooses 'Bhoot Returns'

    With spate of recent sequels like Jism 2, Murder 2, Housefull 2, Ram Gopal Varma doesn’t want Bhoot to be termed as just another sequel. Since ‘Bhoot’ was a huge hit and still has a recall value, the director didn’t want to part with the title.  Thus he chose ‘Bhoot Returns’.

She is perfectly comfortable and graciously accepting of all this. “I’ve always been a drama queen and performer,” shares Alia, flashing those dimples, she further adds, “I’ve wanted to do this since I was two years old.”

    People automatically assume that it is easy for all star kids but when it comes to Alia, she totally shrugs off that thought, “I am working as hard as I can.” She says.  “There are people who don’t come from the film industry who give it a hundred per cent, so why should it be any different for me? I never wanted to star in my father’s productions because that would have been too easy. Even now, if I don’t say Read More »from “I’ve always been a drama queen"
