Emraan Hashmi is back on screen with another horror film,Ek Thi Daayan which releases today. And accompanying him this time are not one or two but three beautiful ladies – Huma Qureshi,Kalki Koechlin and Konkona Sen Sharma.
The movie,which deals with witchcraft and the world of occult,has been directed by Kannan Iyer.
Ek Thi Daayan has been produced jointly by Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj.
There are reports that if the movie does well at the box office the makers would like to make a sequel.
Emraan plays the role of a magician in the film and Huma plays his love interest.
Producer Ekta Kapoor has also earlier said that she is not promoting superstition through the film.
Film’s other lead actress Kalki Koechlin,who has found success in both offbeat and mainstream films,says doing commercial cinema does not fall in her comfort zone. She has worked in offbeat films like Shaitan,That Girl In Yellow Boots and others and has also been a part of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara with Zoya Akhtar.
As Kalki has not been a part of many commercial films,she finds it difficult to act in such movies.
Let’s see how does this commercial movie fare at the box office.
