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’.

After the success, ‘Bhoot 2’ as a title was registered by producer Nitin Manmohan’s company because at that time Nitin Manmohan and RGV were working together. Owing to their parting, producer Nitin Manmohan a year back announced Bhoot 2 with Vikram Bhatt as the director.

 But when Vikram got to know that the announcement was made without RGV’s consent, he backed out. As the title Bhoot 2 was registered with Nitin Manmohan, the new producers of the sequel Alumbra Entertainment and Eros International repeatedly requested Nitin Manmohan to part with the title citing the original creator was RGV. “The producers repeated requested Nitin Manmohan to give the copyright of the title but Desai delayed the process,” says a source close to the producers. RGV decided to end this chase for the title and changed the title of his film from ‘Bhoot 2’ to ‘Bhoot Returns’.

RGV has released a set of videos that has candid raw footage captured on CCTV camera of paranormal events. The five videos were released at 06.06.06 pm. The whole concept of showcasing five videos released at a time believed to be demonic was a rather innovative and strategic way of promotion. 

The film stars actress Manisha Koirala and JD Chakravarthy and Eros International will release the film worldwide on 12th October. Bhoot Returns is RGV’s first 3D film. The film will also release in Tamil and Telugu.
