Vikram Bhatt, who is celebrating 10 million-plus views of the trailer of his upcoming movie 1921, has made the horror genre respectable, says filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt who has worked with him closely over the years.
"Just when the self-proclaimed pundits of our trade had written the obituary of the horror genre comes a tale of love and horror from the director of Raaz (2002) who made horror not only profitable but also respectable," Mahesh Bhatt tweeted on Sunday.
His post came following Vikram Bhatt's message: "Gratitude to all, to those that contributed to this dream film, but most of all to everyone out there for their love and support! Humbled! 1921 trailer hits 10 million."
Set to be released on 12 January 2018, a decade after 1920, the film stars Zareen Khan and Karan Kundra in the lead roles.
Earlier, too, Vikram Bhatt had thanked Mahesh Bhatt for his constant support. "Through thick and thin, sick and sin! Boss, thank you for being there, holding my hand through the long lonely nights in the cold of Yorkshire while I shot the film," he wrote in an earlier tweet.
