Director Suparn Verma is very impressed with Nawazuddin Siddiqui's performance in his film "Aatma (2013)" and asserts that the actor's presence will be felt in each and every scene of the horror thriller.

"I wanted someone who is a good actor first and secondly, he should not have the baggage of a set image. In Nawazuddin, I found more than these two qualities. He is such an actor that even if he is not in the frame, he is omnipresent," Verma said here Wednesday in an interview.

"In 'Aatma (2013)', from the first frame to the last frame, whether Nawaz is there or not, it doesn't matter -- you will feel him around yourself 24 hours," he added.

Nawazuddin has teamed up with Bipasha Basu, who plays his wife in "Aatma (2013)", which hits theatres March 22.

Nowadays, filmmakers are experimenting by making horror drams in 3D format. Director Vikram Bhatt made horror-thrillers like "Haunted", "Raaz 3", and "Dangerous Ishq" in 3D. Besides these, Ram Gopal Varma's "Bhoot Returns" was also in 3D.

But Verma, who earlier directed "Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena" and "Acid Factory", feels the format disconnects the audience from the film.

"My producer Kumar (Kumar Mangat">Kumar Mangat Pathak) offered to shoot the film in 3D, but I didn't because it's a very emotional story. So when you wear 3D glasses, there is some disconnect where you know that you are watching a film... You can't get into the film," he explained

"But I wanted people to identify and relate with the characters. And 3D glasses would have been a barrier. That's why I didn't shoot the film in 3D," he added.
