Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt was all praises for Vikram Bhatt as the trailer of the latter’s upcoming movie 1921 has received 10 million-plus views. Mahesh stated that Vikram has made the horror genre respectable.
"Just when the self-proclaimed pundits of our trade had written the obituary of the horror genre, comes a tale of love and horror from the director of 'Raaz' who made horror not only profitable but also 'respectable'," Mahesh Bhatt tweeted on Sunday.
His post came following Vikram's message: "Gratitude to all, to those that contributed to this dream film, but most all to everyone out there for their love and support! Humbled! '1921' trailer hits 10 million."
Releasing on January 12 -- a decade after "1920" -- the film stars Zarine Khan and Karan Kundra in the lead roles.
Earlier also, Vikram had thanked Mahesh for his constant support.
"Through thick and thin, sick and sin!! Boss, thank you for being there, holding my hand through the long lonely nights in the cold of Yorkshire while I shot the film," he wrote in an earlier tweet.
Vikram is known for horror movies like "Raaz", "1920", "Haunted - 3D", "Raaz 3D" and "Raaz Reboot".
