Witchcraft, black magic, the supernatural- Kanan Iyer's new film 'Ek Thi Daayan' tries to explore all these issues.
Starring Emraan Hashmi, Konkona Sen Sharma, Huma Quereshi and Kalki Koechlin, the film promises to be a supernatural thriller.
Directed by Kanan Iyer, the film has been produced by Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj.
Kalki Koechlin plays Lisa Dutt, a music teacher in the film.
The film was earlier titled 'Daayan' but it was later changed to 'Ek Thi Daayan'.
Emraan Hashmi plays a magician in the film and Quereshi plays his girlfriend.
According to the makers the film is psychological supernatural thriller and not really a horror film.
Apparently, the film is inspired from a short story written by Konkona's father which is a folk tale. Kannan Iyer picked up the idea and weaved the story around it.
Emraan Hashmi who has been part of supernatural films in the past will be seen working with Huma and Konkona for the first time. Hashmi and Koechlin worked previously in 'Shanghai'.
After a long hiatus, Konkona Sen Sharma will be seen on the big screen. The actress had taken a break after marriage and had a son.
