RAAZ 3 is the third feature I worked on India, and was also Vikram Bhatt’s third foray into 3D, having first completed Haunted in 2011 and Dangerous Ishq in late 2012. A co-production between Fox Star Studios and Vishesh Films, it starred Bipasha Basu, Emraan Hashmi, and Esha Gupta, with Basu cast as a spiteful actress jealous of her rival’s success, and the boyfriend caught in between.

The film is the third installment in the Raaz series, being a sequel to Raaz – The Mystery Continues, which itself was a sequel to Raaz which starred Bipasha Basu and Dino Morea. Bipasha Basu who was a part of the first film of the Raaz series, has made a comeback to the series after opting out of the second film. It was one of the films in a series of quasi-sequels released under the Bhatt Banner including Raaz – The Mystery Continues, Murder 2, Jannat 2, Jism 2, 1920: Evil Returns, Murder 3 andAashiqui 2, each of which had nothing to do with their respective prequels, but somehow fell into the same genre following a similar story.
The film released on 7 September 2012 with paid previews on 6 September 2012 to mixed reception while Basu’s role was highly praised by critics. The film garnered overwhelming box office collections and was declared a “Super Hit” at the box office. It emerged as a major commercial success in India and is the highest grossing film in the Raaz trilogy as well as the highest grossing horror film ever. The film is also the first 3D super hit of India and the second highest grossing film of Vishesh Films.It was also called a 3D Blockbuster in the Indian media. The film is also currently the highest grossing film of Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta, beating Murder 2 and Jannat 2, respectively.
