Says Mahesh Bhatt, “It is the biggest body in international cinema. We had a three-film deal with the production house. We are sure to work on one more project with him in the future.” Bhatt also informs that once the third installment of Murder releases next year, he is supposed to work with James on two big projects which is likely to announce next year.

“These are not international projects, it will be made in Hindi but serve for global audience,” he says. Adds Vijay Singh, CEO of Fox Star Studios, “The association with the Bhatts goes a long way. We have done some stellar work together. James and our president Sanford Panitch, want to cement our long standing equation.”
