The curtains may have come down on 1920 but producer Vikram Bhatt is all set to refurnish the franchise with a 2.0 version which is not a follow-up of the earlier films.
A Mumbai Mirror report quoted Vikram as saying, "The idea behind 1920 was to bring horror into a period drama redolent with the romance of the times. But with Part 2 and Part 3 the direction changed and the series became more about horror. 1921, while more terrifying, will also be more emotional."
The makers have roped in 'Hate Story 3' actress Zareen Khan to play the leading lady. The actress revealed to a tabloid that she has been getting a lot of offers but she's been picky-choosy, waiting for Aksar's sequel to take off. When Vikram offered her 1921, she was quick to grab it even though horror films terrify her. "I have been a fan of his films and it was too good an opportunity to pass over. Maybe it will cure me of the phobia. It's a kind of a challenge," says the actress who had texted Bhatt congratulating him on Love Games and saying she'd love to work with him. "He told me he had something in mind and would meet me after the film's release. When he narrated 1921, I was blown over and couldn't say no."
Reportedly '1921' revolves around students of music and is set in a university town. The film will be shot in Vienna or Yorkshire, or even somewhere in Italy or Scotland. It hit the shooting floors in November.
