Emraan Hashmi, the actor who is known for his romance and thriller film, has been roped in for Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak‘s next. This film – the Hindi remake of Prithviraj starrer horror film Ezra – will be produced by Panorama Studios.
This horror film starring Emraan Hashmi will be shot in Mumbai and Mauritius. The casting of 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. 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 Krishnan at the helm of things all I can say is be prepared for one hell of a spooky ride.”
Producer Abhishek Pathak adds:
“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 working with Emraan for our third collaboration after Dil Toh Bacha Hai Ji and the untitled Amitji-Emraan film which is under-production.”
Jay Krishnan who is all set to direct the Hindi remake states:
“When Kumarji and Abhishek watched Ezra they were convinced that it needs to be retold to a wider audience and in a bigger canvas. The 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.”
