India's first zombie film coming soon
Zombie films are a huge trend globally and now, India will have its first film on the subject — 'Rise Of The Zombie'. Luke Kenny (from 'Rock On'!!) and Kirti Kulhari (from 'Shaitan') play pivotal roles in the movie along with Ashwin Mushran and Benjamin Gilani. The movie has been co-directed by Luke and Devaki Singh.
Luke, who has also co-produced the film and composed three songs in the album, says he wanted to explore the zombie genre. "It's a four-decade-old pop culture phenomenon. Every country, be it Cuba, South Africa or Germany, has had its own zombie film. So, we thought India should have one, too." About his role in the movie, he adds, "I play a wildlife photographer whose priority is his work; he compromises on everything, including his personal relationships. The story is basically about him going to the jungle after a fallout with his girlfriend and what follows afterwards."
At an event recently, the official trailer was unveiled followed by the launch of the soundtrack, along with a Zombie dance performance. Musicians Suraj Jaggan, Caralisa Monterio, Aditi Singh Sharma, Anuraag and Arfaaz, Luke and Boomerang (a music band from Northeast) also performed live at the launch.
Rise Of The Zombie, produced by BSI Entertainment, Kenny Films and Luminosity Pictures, releases February 22.
