We know Vikram Bhatt loves to give breaks to newbies. No wonder then that the filmmaker chose to give his childhood friend and cinematographer Bhushan Patel his big break by letting him direct his first ever Bollywood film

 A source close to both of them points out, “Vikram and Bhushan have been childhood friends. Vikram has always admired his friend’s cinematography skills. He thought this would be the perfect project to helm.” The film is the sequel of Vikram’s 2008 film 1920.

The source adds, “The film has been shot at beautiful locales. Bhushan has coupled great visual effects with never seen before-horror, and it seems like the perfect project for a debutant director.” Bhushan says, “In fact, Vikram gave me my first break as a cinematographer and I have also assisted his father. He has always been a dear friend and a mentor to me.”
