Karisma Kapoor's comeback film 'Dangerous Ishhq 3D' releasing on 11 May

NEW DELHI: ‘Dangerous Ishhq‘, the comeback film of ‘Biwi no. 1‘ Karisma Kapoor, is to be released globally on 11 May in both 2D and 3D.

Director Vikram Bhatt told that a total of 700 prints will be released in 2D and around 330 in 3D.

The mystery thriller which is based on past life regression has been produced by Reliance Entertainment, DAR Motion Pictures (A Division of DAR Media) and BVG Films (A Division of ASA).

It is the second film in India to be shot in stereoscopic 3D using state of the art technology and a leading international technical crew after the success of Haunted- 3D in 2011 which was also directed by Vikram Bhatt.

Others in the cast are Jimmy Shergill, Rajneesh Duggal, Divya Dutta, Sameer Kochar, Gracy Singh, and Ruslaan Mumtaz.

Addressing a press meet here earlier, Bhatt said he also been influenced by the book Many Lives, Many Masters by Dr Brian Weiss.

He said the film was drawn from the experiences of his own life. "I had a tryst with emptiness that took me on to the path of spirituality and the search for answers. I studied psychic meditation and then slowly the art of regression into past lives. I know that all this sounds like a lot of nonsense to the people who won‘t believe but to someone like me who has been through the fire of that experience there is no turning back."

Asked about the casting of Karishma, he said he had approached her a long time earlier – before his film ‘Haunted‘ – but she had consented just last year.

Karishma said the story had fascinated her and it had been a challenge to play many roles and speak five different dialects in one film.

She indicated that this was not a one-film foray on her return to Bollywood and she was considering other offers.

Duggal who had also appeared in a main role in ‘1920‘ by Vikram Bhatt said he had felt nervous initially about acting with Karishma, but she put him at ease.

Dangerous Ishhq 3D is the story of Sanjana (Karisma Kapoor) - a super model - and Aditya (Rajneesh Duggall), the son of a big industrialist, who vanishes under mysterious conditions. The film is Sanjana‘s tryst with destiny - her journey into the past to save her future.

The film has music by Himesh Reshammiya, lyrics by Sameer and Shabbir Ahmed, written by Amin Hajee and dialogues by Girish Dhamija. The director of photography Pravin Bhatt captures over 500 years of Indian history in 3D and Abbas Ali Moughal heralds the action.
