Vikram Bhatt's next 3D thriller Dangerous Ishq just got a lot more dangerous. Apparently, Karisma Kapoor is all set to make comeback in Bhatt's film. Bhatt is known to have a way with leading ladies - he convinced Sushmita Sen to turn actress after she was crowned Miss Universe. And now Vikram has apparently convinced Karisma Kapoor to make a comeback with his slick 3D thriller Dangerous Ishq.
Karisma whose last screen appearance was in Suneel Darshan's Mere Jeevan Saathi in 2006 (where she played an obsessive woman stalking Akshay Kumar) has been in search of the right role to return to cinema with. She even said yes to Onir's offer to do a role in I Am. But the deal fell through for monetary reasons. Onir had to change the character of the female victim of child abuse to a male.
Vikram Bhatt was determined to get Karisma…at any price. He could afford it after Haunted which has become the highest-grossing horror film in India of all times.
Laughs Bhatt, "Yes, Haunted had made a huge profit I cannot deny that. And yes I can afford to pay my stars well. It's a powerful role for a 30-plus actress who is stunning and talented."
Apparently, the producers want to announce Karisma's comeback in their film in a big way.
Says a source close to the project, "Vikram has met Karisma several times. She loves the script of Dangerous Ishq. It has an author-backed role for her with many shades. Just the kind of character she has been looking for. She has made up her mind to do the film.
