New Delhi, Jan 17 (Agencies): Despite Shaapit’s box office debacle, Vikram Bhatt is returning to his favourite genre and is planning to release his next horror venture 'Haunted' in 3D.

Claimed to be India's first stereoscopic 3D, the film will release on April 15 and stars new faces – Mithun Chakraborty's son Mahakshay Chakraborty and Tia Bajpai.

The movie is shot in 3D like James Cameron's 'Avatar' and Bhatt roped in technicians and supports from Canada.

3DCC's custom 3D camera systems were used exclusively during the production. Reportedly, the technical crew of 'Haunted' comprises of Brent Robinson (Stereographer), Christan Jeams and Cassidey, Micheal Reuben Flax.

The story has been penned by Bhatt himself and revolves around certain happenings in a house with a secret past and a haunted present. It uses the element of time travel; the story is set in the present but travels to the distant past.

Bhatt claims that the film is his "most expensive and ambitious project till date".
