Zareen starts preparing for Vikram Bhatt’s film

Mumbai: Actress Zareen Khan, who is set to explore the horror genre for the first time with filmmaker Vikram Bhatts “1921”, has been preparing for her role by watching some horror series and films every night.

“I have never done a horror genre so, it’s very challenging for me. But I am really looking forward to this one,” Zareen said in a statement.

The actress’ role in the film has not been disclosed yet.

Zareen, who was last seen on the big screen in director Vishay Pandya’s “Hate Story 3”, would also be attending a few workshops before she starts shooting.

The film will revolve around students of music and will be set in a university town. It will go on the floors in May and will be extensively shot in London.

“1921” will be Bhatt’s fifth movie after “Raaz”, “1920”, “Haunted” and “Hate Story” under his banner in collaboration with Reliance Entertainment.

Zareen will also be seen in “Aksar 2”, a sequel to the 2006 film “Aksar”. Ananth Mahadevan, who helmed the 2006 thriller “Aksar”, which starred Emraan Hashmi, Udita Goswami and Dino Morea, will be directing the sequel too.
