Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt refuted the rumours of Sidharth Malhotra being part of ‘Raaz’ and ‘Murder’ instalment. The filmmaker spoke without mincing words, that his nephew Emraan Hashmi will continue to be a part of hit franchises like ‘Raaz’ and ‘Murder’.
As per sources, actor Sidharth Malhotra, who will be seen in Bhatt’s upcoming film ‘Ek Villain’ was claimed by a report that, he had signed a multiple-film deal with the banner (Vishesh Films).
Bhatt said only Emraan will take forward the franchises, “Going by the numbers, it is impossible for us to separate the ‘Murder’ and ‘Raaz’ franchises from Emraan. He is an integral and inseparable part of the brand.”
Bhatt further added that, “We have burnt our fingers thoroughly with ‘Murder 3’, a venture Emraan did not spearhead, and we do not plan to repeat that. Whoever is spreading these rumours (of Sidharth doing the franchise) has vested interests and is way out of line. I hope this puts the malice to rest…we will not make (the next) ‘Murder’ or ‘Raaz’ without Emraan.”
Emraan and the Bhatt’s have not only blood relation but a successful working relation too.
