Vikram Bhatt, who is back with yet another horror mystery, 1921, released on 12th January 2018, wanted to shoot at locations that reflected the era of 1921 with ancient architecture. One of the locations that attracted Vikram’s attention was England’s Wentworth Woodhouse in South Yorkshire. The entire cast and crew was instructed to stay together while shooting after a ghost-like figure was spotted on the sets, with the sighting caught on camera by Vikram himself.
“There was no one in the frame except Karan Kundrr and Zareen Khan but when we played the scene on the monitor, we saw someone in the background. A closer look revealed that it was a ghost,” the director shared. Vikram Bhatt believes that love lives on in the spirit world and quantum physics will bridge the divide between science and the supernatural and says it’s all about belief. He also says that with the film he wants not just to scare but also make the audience empathise with the characters. “1921 is a film that goes beyond the genre.”
The film features debutante Karan Kundrra and Zareen Khan and was shot mostly in Britain. The trailer shows the story of Ayush played by Karan Kundrra who goes to London to study music. There he encounters paranormal activity and reaches out to a psychic medium named Rose, played by Zareen Khan. As she takes up his case, the two grow closer and develop romantic feelings. However, this only raises the stakes as the malevolent spirits are hell-bent on destroying their lives.
1921, is released in cinemas on 12th January 2018,
