"Vikram is my saviour. 'Haunted - 3D' became successful and gave me a new position in the industry. I have had a great time working for the film and it is a great memory," Mahaakshay, son of veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty, in a statement.
The 2011 film, "Haunted - 3D" was declared a hit at the box office. Bhatt is now working on a sequel of the film.
"'Haunted 2' should go on floors by the end of the year. But, it won't have Mahaakshay. Instead, the sequel will have new actors," said Bhatt.
