Emraan-Bipasha's 'Raaz 3' Isn't Missing It's Deadline

Would Raaz 3 manage to meet its deadlines? That's the rumour going around in certain segments of the industry circles, what with its theatrical trailer being launched just a little over a month before the film’s planned release on 7th September. It is being rumoured that since the Emraan Hashmi and Bipasha Basu starrer has been made in 3D, the makers have to work overtime to ensure a timely release.
"Unlike Joker which decided to drop the idea of releasing the film in 3D, Raaz 3 moved ahead with it's original plans. Vikram Bhatt has shot the film in 3D and now it only needs to be processed for the big screen. With only four weeks remaining now for the film's release, the countdown has begun", informs an insider.
This is pretty much a deja vu situation as one is reminded of RA. One which had struggled last Diwali when its 3D prints struggled to reach theatres till the last minute.
"Well, RA. One and for that matter even Don 2 was a different story as they were converted from 2D to 3D. Also, the decision to also have a 3D version was taken at a later stage whereas Raaz 3 was always planned this way", says a source close to Vikram.
Vikram Bhatt denies though that there are any changes in plans.
"No way", Vikram shoots back, "The film is not getting delayed by a day. We have already started promoting the film and the songs are out as well."
With Barfi!, Heroine, English Vinglish and OMG Oh My God! all set to arrive in subsequent weeks, the makers of Raaz 3 are all the more conscious of ensuring that it releases as per the original schedule.
