Well known Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi has always showcased his determination as a brilliant star. He is also identified for picking exciting movies. The super star has recently been signed for well known personalities Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak's next project.
The star has been signed for the Hindi remake of Prithviraj starrer horror movie Ezra.
Being produced under the banner of Panorama Studios, this is the second instance when Panorama Studios is remaking a Malayalam movie, and their initial one was Drishyam. Ezra is being helmed by ace personality Jay Krishnan who has helmed the original Malayalam movie in addition.
The movie will get filed in the cities of Mumbai and Mauritius. The female lead for the movie has not been announced thus far.
A happy Emraan said, "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.”
Film maker Abhishek Pathak added up that the flick was a success tale in Malayalam and an excellent tale is always universal and therefore, they got convinced for the same.
He added. “The film 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 Bacha Hai Ji and the untitled Amitji-Emraan film which is under-production."
Jay Krishnan who will be the director of the Hindi remake said, "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."
