Not many know but the Bhatts had intended to make 'Khamoshiyaan' a part of the Raaz franchise. Mahesh Bhatt reveals that Khamoshiyaan that stars TV's heartthrob Gurmeet Choudhary, Ali Fazal and Sapna Pabbi was originally supposed to be titled 'Raaz 4'. The reason, the film is closer to the Raaz franchise - in story-telling and breath-taking songs that the franchise movies always have had. However, the Bhatts, later chose to let 'Khamoshiyaan' have an identity of its own.
Mahesh Bhatt confirms saying, â€œYes, it is true. We deliberated for a long time but later we decided that 'Khamoshiyaan' should stand on its own feet. It's a tremendous film with incredible music. We have released two songs so far from the film and both songs have become super-hits. This goes to show the power of the album and the positive appeal that the cast and the content of the film is receiving from audiences and fans. We are extremely thrilled with the response so far and we are gearing up for the release of 'Khamoshiyaan' on Jan 30.â€
Meanwhile, 'Khamoshiyaan' trailer has crossed the 2 million view count, making it one of the most successful trailers on social media for non-star cast films. 'Khamoshiyaan' made history by recording the fastest ever million views for a non-star cast film! The response to the trailer has been simply phenomenal. Mahesh adds, â€œI'm really delighted to see this response. It only shows that content is the king. This is simply outstanding for a film like 'Khamoshiyaan'. We are making stars out of our actors and all things suggest that we are in the right direction.â€
