We had previously heard that director Vishal Bhardwaj and Queen of Indian television, Ekta Kapoor will be teaming up together for the first time for a film. This news was confirmed as Ekta Kapoor was quoted saying, “Yes, Vishal and I are planning a drama with a breakthrough genre. It will be replete with thrills, chartbusting music and supernatural elements.”
Both directors are set to make a supernatural musical called ‘Dayaan’. Abhishek Chaubey, of Ishqiya fame will be the creative producer of the film.
The more interesting fact here is that Emraan Hashmi, who is famously associated with the Bhatt-camp, will be playing the male lead in the movie as Vishal’s new hero. But, it seems the female lead has not yet been finalized. Emraan will be romancing not one but, three ladies in the film. Both Vishal and Ekta are said to be looking for some young but established actors to cast as female lead as the roles are very vital and performance oriented. Ekta Kapoor said, “Three young and happening girls will be cast opposite Emraan.” Initially, it was heard that Rani Mukherji was being considered for a role. A source confirmed this news but added that,” Rani would have looked a bit old opposite Emraan.”
The project is expected to go on the floors this November.
