Mumbai, April 17: After almost three years, Emraan Hashmi has signed horror film “Ezra”, which is the Hindi remake of a Malayalam horror film. The actor says the movie will push boundaries, and promises “one hell of a spooky ride”.

Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak’s Hindi remake of the Prithviraj-starrer horror film is being produced by Panorama Studios. It will be helmed by Jay Krishnan, who has directed the original Malayalam film as well.

The film will be shot in Mumbai and Mauritius. The casting for the female lead is underway.

“Horror is a genre with immense potential. A well-made horror film will always draw audiences in huge numbers to cinema halls,” Emraan said in a statement.

“With ‘Ezra’, we hope to push the boundaries further and give the audience an experience that they will never forget. I’m happy to be associating with Kumarji and Abhishek on this film and with Jay at the helm of things all I can say is be prepared for one hell of a spooky ride.”

Known for spreading shrills and thrills with “Raaz: The Mystery Continues”, “Raaz 3: The Third Dimension” and “Ek Thi Daayan”, Emraan was last seen in 2016 film “Raaz Reboot”. Lately, he was seen in social message-driven films “Baadshaho” and “Why Cheat India”.

Producer Abhishek said: “‘Ezra’ was a success story in Malayalam and a good story is always universal and hence we were convinced that it has the potential to appeal to the pan-India audience as it has a perfect blend of horror, story and emotion. With this remake, we look forward to work with Emraan for our third collaboration after ‘Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji’ and the untitled Amitji-Emraan film which is under-production.”

Krishnan says the film will come with a “fresh approach to the horror genre showcased in Ezra was well received down south and the film was a blockbuster”.

“I hope to push the envelope further with the backing of Panorama studios and the presence of an actor like Emraan Hashmi,” he said.

Mumbai: Tuesday marks a month that Sushant Singh Rajput passed away. On this day, Sanjana Sanghi, lead actress of Sushant’s last film ‘Dil Bechara’, penned an emotional note in the late actor’s memory.

‘Whoever said time helps heal all wounds, was lying. Some feel like they are being ripped open, again and again, and bleeding. Of moments that now will forever remain memories, of laughs together that were but will never again be, questions that will remain unanswered, of disbelief that only keeps growing.’

‘But these wounds also contain a film, a gift that everyone is yet to see, wounds that contain dreams, plans and desires for our country’s children, their education and their future that will be fulfilled, wounds that contain a passion for an endless creative zest for every artist there is, wounds that contain the hope for a world that promises to uphold honesty, integrity, kindness and embraces individuality – rid of all toxicity.’
‘I vow that I will do everything to make sure each of these dreams are fulfilled, like you always wanted me to. Except, you had promised we would do it all together. #SushantSinghRajput #ThinkingOfYou,’ shared Sanjana on her verified Instagram account story.

Casting director Mukesh Chhabra who makes his debut as director with ‘Dil Bechara’, also remembered Sushant Tuesday.

‘Ek mahina ho Gaya hai aj…ab toh kabhi phone bhi nahi ayega tera (it has been a month since you left… I know you will never ever call me again),’ shared Chhabra on his verified Instagram account.

The filmmaker also shared some photographs of the late actor from the sets of the film.

Directed by Mukesh Chhabra, ‘Dil Bechara’ is the official remake of the 2014 Hollywood romantic drama ‘The Fault in our Stars’, based on John Green’s popular novel of the same name.

‘Dil Bechara’ will be the last release of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who passed away in Mumbai June 14. The film is slated to release on an OTT platform July 24.
