Says a source, “Vikram Bhatt happened to drop in on the sets of Horror Story and met with everyone – A few minutes later director Ayush Raina asked for his opinion on a scene and the next thing you know Vikram was directing a segment – Though he had his reservations initially and prefers giving his directors creative freedom ,Ayush insisted on having him direct the scene”.

Anmol Kapoor speaks his heart out talking about his upcoming venture Patiala Dreamz

Canada based Heart specialist Anmol Kapoor who having produced documentaries, feature films is producing Patiala Dreamz, a Punjabi Film with the international touch.

Patiala Dreamz which is a Bollywood test as Anmol Kapoor claims is a project he has given his heart & soul too. With a thought that the best way to educate communities globally would be the most sought after Entertainment Industry.

The Canada based heart specialist Anmol Kapoor brilliantly explains, “I am making a movie the audiences would love to watch, a typical socio-drama film. You go buy a ticket & the proceeds go to, an organization treating the cancer patients.”

Anmol Kapoor who intends to educate the South Asian communities India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh & he is of the opinion that a community helps community.

Patiala Dreamz is not just a typecast Punjabi film, having renowned Punjabi actors, the movie is backed by Bollywood artistes & singers & a Bollywood production house is involved. Anmol Kapoor with the larger picture of his movie Patiala Dreamz mentions, “Patiala Dreamz will be dubbed in many languages, I’m not looking towards marketing only in the South Asian nations but also Russia where I got my medical degree from, Germany, Holland & USA.”

Talking on the marketing front Doctor cum Producer further adds, “Punjabis are omnipresent & moreover I have a tie up with many media associations in Canada who are our active partners in supporting & promoting the film keeping the core message intact of helping our community.”

We say thumps up to this producer who is a social worker in the true sense. He answers our modest question as to why the proceeds entirely be given to the NGOs, he explains, “In Canada the Govt. take care of all the medical treatment anyway & I don’t plan to buy aPorche or a Ferrari. Here I have taken Bollywood as a social project. I have put my heart & soul & I am working towards the finished project to be the best & entertaining though.”

Talking about Patiala Dreamz he summarizes, “This movie is not a regional but a part of Bollywood. It is entertaining, holds the grip & emphasized on the connection between the east & west.”

Quiet a multi- tasker we say! Anmol Kapoor deserves all the support for this brilliant idea.

Satish Reddy and Haroon Rashid wants to interact with ghost

Ghost is the scariest part of everyone life but a very few people show their courage and would love to interact with ghost and they are none other than the makers of Super Natural movie Producer Satish Reddy and Director Haroon Rashid. “Super Natural” Worlds First one take Bollywood Horror movie is going to pay tribute to the 100 years of cinema and was shot in just 2 hours and 20 minute-long and was completed in one take without a single cut with a crew of 17 people. The movie is also listed in Limca Book of Records and it is also attempting for Guinness World Record.

Ghost cannot be seen or touch it but it can be felt around us. Ghost stories—tales of spirits who return from the dead to haunt the places they left behind—have figured prominently in the folklore and the makers show their curiosity to interact with ghost.

Satish Reddy, “Ghost is a very interesting topic for me and there is too much curiosity in me to study more about a ghost. I would love to interact with a ghost and I’ll make a questionnaire first.”

Ghost stories are related to famous people and events using a mixture of experts and dramatic reconstructions of both the supernatural events and the history underlying them. “It’s a very tough job for every director to make believe their audience on ghost. We try to make them feel real. Only a best director know who peoples gets scary it just be possible by having a Chit Chat with ghost”, Haroon Rashid Said.
