You have written your real life experience in this film.
When I was singer in the bar and went to abroad for a performance. There was this dancer who was also indulged in prostitution due to her needs. Our person came to her and said there is a client who wants to see her and wants to spend night with her.
Her age was hardly 20, she went and when she came back she was black and blue. I asked her what happened then she told about the incident that the person who took her had booms, belts and chains in his basement. He beats women before he sleeps with them. Surprisingly that guy was from Bombay. So it's a nightmare for women who indulges in prostitution but get trapped in dangerous situation like this. While writing the story this incident was there in my head then the Nithari things come up.
You incorporated the incident in the film.
Yes it is there in the film. It is not exactly the Jacqueline who is going through such torture but there are other victims who get tortured in the film.
How you avoided the prostitute trap as you were surrounded by them?
No I didnít indulge in such activities because in Muslim countries they don't force you. They leave it up to you. If you want to indulge they will not object but if you donít want then they will not push you. The Indian embassy is very strong there.
You have taken inspiration from Nithari case.
Nithari case happened recently 2-3 years ago so I have mixed both cases. The school girl, the prostitute who one night went to client thinking of normal client but actually he is not the man he is completely insane he beats them rape them and then kill them.
Right now you are working with any other project...
I have written Raaz 2 and now I'm writing Raaz 3.
Does Mahesh Bhatt interfere in the creative process?
Mahesh Bhatt does not interfere in the creative process. Once I am done I take it to him for the feedback. Mahesh sir ideology is that if I make changes there wonít be any new thing then what the use of bringing writers from outside is.
How difficult is to write the sequel of super hits of Murder and Raaz?
The journer is totally different. It's not the sequel itís totally different from murder1. You can see in the promos that it does not have any shades of murder1 as the content is different.
How far is your writing?
Well I was writing for Doordarshan. It was the times when satellite channels come up and when I went for apply as a writer they asked me whether I have written for xyz channel. And they didn't give me job for this reason for 4-5 years. So to support family I turned bar singer. I wasnít someone from bar I went there worked so that I can get money to struggle for my dreams. I was the writer then turned bar girl and then again writer.
When you were so good in singing then why didn't you tried to be a singer?
I could but my writing was doing so well.
Are you willing to write outside Bhatt champ?
Yaa I would like to. I mean I'm getting offers but the people who asked me to meet actually just wanted to see me that who is this bar dancer who is writing stories for "Bhatts". They really didn't want me to write so stopped meeting such people.
So Raaz 3 is your next project?
Yes I m writing for Vikram's Raaz 3 which is in 3D. it's is about a girl who experiences paranormal activities and then Emraan come to her rescue and the thing which was troubling her is the big Raaz in the film. In Raaz Jacqueline is finalized and there is another girl which needs to be bold. I personally will say that Mallika or Bipasha should do it.
Which else stories you has written which is yet to release?
'Informerí which will be directed by Kunal Deshmukh. Earlier Sanjay Dutt was approached but now Randeep Huda will do the part.
Are you completely outsider to this industry?
My sister was actress from 60's named Fareeda Khan she did few films and got married to the director Balwit Sadana who shot her. So I am not completely an outsider.
