It was a Thrilling experience for everyone at ‘Ek Thi Daayan’ press meet, check out this photo if you wish to know how.
It was almost a magic show at the press meet of Ek Thi Daayan, the press conference was setup with the movie theme. Dark shadows, lizards and daayan (witch), dolls hanging from trees. and the conference started at midnight followed by Emran Hashmi’s Performance.
The set at filmcity also included girls dressed as ‘daayans’ standing at the entrance handing out ‘misfortune cookies’ to the guests. Also the bus that carried the media from the entrance of the Film City, which itself in the middle of a jungle, to the studio floor was titled ‘Bus To Hell’.
Inspired by Mukul Sharma’s short story is an interesting drama, which is directed by Kannan Iyer featuring Huma Qureshi, Kalki Koechlin and Konkona as lead ladies and Emraan as the male lead.
The event to launch the film worked very well. to add to this, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap made a surprise visit to the press meet, and after that Mr Iyer, creative producer Abhishek Chaubey, producers Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj, and the entire star cast of the film interacted with the media.
We are showing two sides of a daayan in our film. One side is very beautiful and the other is extremely scary. I can’t give too much details about the film. To know more, you will have to see the film.
Mr Iyer said,
I feel a thriller on ‘daayan’ has not been made at all.
We wanted natural actresses with flexibility. All three of the actress is so versatile that you will constantly wonder is she a daayan or not. All three of them suited their characters.
Mr Bhardwaj said,
Among these three girls only one of them is a daayan and I can’t say who the daayan is right now. For that you will have to see the film.
Konkana Sen said,
I have a fascination for these kinds of films anyway. I really wanted to be a part of dark film.
And she has got the chance to work in her fathers story.
