Director Bhanu Pratap Singh is making his debut as a filmmaker with Bhoot: The Haunted Ship. However, in his interview with indianexpress.com, Bhanu said that he doesn’t fear comparisons with other movies in the same genre.
“I am confident enough to say it is on par with Hollywood films. We are trying to do something different this time, thanks to my producers who backed me. In India, we make all sorts of movies, be it romantic, or even biopics but not many horror films are made. Some scripts are written, but producers do not back it because they think it would not work at the box office. I won’t say make a lot of them, but at least one or two horror films from big production houses will encourage others to support such films because there is an audience for it,” Bhanu said.
