MUMBAI: Raaz – The Mystery Continues director Mohit Suri is a relieved man. The trailer of his horror movie, which is being co-produced by Vishesh Films and Sony BMG has been received well by the audiences.
The trailer was screened with Fashion and Golmaal Returns. Suri says, "Obviously all of us were anxious to about the first look of RTMC. However, when we saw it for the first time ourselves in the preview theatre, we knew we had cracked it."
RTMC is slated to hit theatres on 23 January, 2009 and stars Emraan Hashmi, Kangana Ranaut and Adhyayan Suman.
Suri adds, "All of us had an idea of what the trailer would do and to achieve it the look and feel of the trailer that was discussed and worked over a lot. I think this is the longest time to crack the first trailer in the history of Vishesh, which is close to 40 films old."
"Both Mr. Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt were exhilarated by the trailer, and were confident it would do wonders, but the response has been over-whelming and surpassed all our expectations. Ours and SONY BMG phones haven’t stopped ringing once people saw the trailer. The film trade guys and the distributors have been calling us non-stop," he says.
Suri is currently working on the film’s post production. "The response to the trailer made me really happy for a moment and now the realization of people’s giant expectations from the movie has just set in… so here I am, making sure the film scares them as much as the trailer did."
