Cute is the new spook in RGV’s Bhoot Returns

Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma had a task on hand when he sought to turn a cute little girl look scary on the poster of his forthcoming film Bhoot Returns.

The poster shows the little girl with optical illusion applied to it. Asked why he opted for such a poster, Varma said, ‘I have created this kind of poster for two reasons. One is, of course, it draws your attention to the 3D aspect. Second is the fact that there is a very cute looking girl and you are supposed to be scared of her. That’s why I went for this poster.’

Bhoot Returns is a sequel to Varma’s 2003-film Bhoot and features Manisha Koirala and southern actor J.D. Chakravarthy in the lead.

Varma believes that fear is a constant thing and, hence, most horror films carry the same elements.

‘My belief is that horror film should never have anything very different because fear is so basic, you are always scared of the same things, you are not scared of new things,’ said Varma.

‘You are always scared to look behind the door or under the bed. No matter how many times you see it, you are still scared because there is a subconscious in all of us,’ he added.

‘I feel there is something in the house,’ he said.

Bhoot Returns is slated for 12 October release.
