Mumbai, July 21 (IANS) Filmmaker Mukesh Bhatt says that his next film "Raaz - The Mystery Continues" is not a sequel to 2005 hit starring Bipasha Basu and Dino Morea but is inspired by Hollywood suspense-horror "The Omen".
"The film can be termed as a supernatural thriller on the lines of Hollywood's 1976 movie 'The Omen' starring Gregory Peck and Lee Remick. But the story is not exactly the same," Bhatt told IANS.
Vishesh Films is co-producing the film with Sony BMG, with whom they recently collaborated on four projects. The film, which is already on the floors, is a part of a Rs.1 billion deal.
"For a change, we are not the producers of this film. Sony BMG has forayed into film production in India now," added Bhatt.
Directed by Mohit Suri of "Kalyug" fame, the film starring Emraan Hashmi and Kangana Ranaut will be ready for release by the end of this year.
