Thrills and chills at 'Ek Thi Daayan' press meetDiscarding the staid press conference routine, Balaji Wednesday put up an electrifying act by Emraan Hashmi and his 'daayans' in an elaborate setting at Filmcity, featuring 'daayan' dolls hanging from tree tops and girls dressed as 'daayans' standing at the entrance handing out 'misfortune cookies' to the guests.
The forthcoming supernatural thriller, inspired by a short story by Mukul Sharma (Konkona Sen Sharma's father), offers an interesting mix of suspense, drama and spine chilling moments. The Kannan Iyer directed "Ek Thi Daayan" stars Huma Qureshi, Kalki Koechlin and Konkona in the female leads. Emraan plays the male lead in the film.
Accordingly, 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. And guests were in for a shock, when they found themselves with 'daayans'.
The act was opened by Emraan who performed a series of illusion stunts and eerie acts, before being joined by his leading ladies - Huma, Kalki and Konkona, any of whom could be the 'daayan' in the film.
The unusual event to launch the film worked well. In fact, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who made a surprise visit to the press meet, was completely floored and termed it the best he had seen in a while.
Later 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," Emraan told reporters.
