Sara Loren talks about camaraderie with Bhatts

Pakistani actress Sara Loren, who is a part of "Murder 3", regards her companionship with the Bhatt camp as a blessing.

"I feel more comfortable (with Bhatt's). Doing a simple film and being a part of a camp is different. I have a different comfort level with them. They are very sensitive. They deal with you as an actor and as a person. These things encourage a newcomer a lot," said.

The film, releasing Friday, also features Randeep Hooda and Aditi Rao Hydari. It is co-produced by Vishesh Films and Fox Star Studios, and directed by Mukesh Bhatt's son Vishesh.

Sara's debut Bollywood film "Kajraare" was directed by Pooja Bhatt.
