‘Ek Thi Daayan’ gets U/A certificate
New Delhi: Ekta Kapoor’s supernatural thriller ‘EK Thi Daayan’ – which has been making headlines for its issues with the National Commission for Women - is apparently the first horror movie to get a U/A rating from the Central Board of Film Certification.
While rumours were rife that the multi-starrer would likely be limited to an adult audience, the Censor Board`s decision has established the fact that the thriller-horror genre is popular with youngsters as well.
Directed by Kannan Iyer, ‘Ek Thi Daayan’ – which stars Emraan Hashmi, Konkona Sen Sharma, Kalki Koechlin and Huma Qureshi – narrates the story of a magician whose life falls apart because of his persistent hallucinations. He is put through regression hypnosis to put an end to his troubles but a frightening story of a daayan, who destroyed his family from his childhood, returns to haunt him.
“While we have the advantage of the film being children-friendly, it also has all the commercial masala that the audience expects from an Emraan Hashmi film. Young couples, who want to cuddle up during the spooks and scares, have found their film to do so,” a leading daily quoted Ekta as saying.
Produced by Alt Entertainment and Vishal Bhardwaj Pictures, ‘Ek Thi Daayan’ is all set to hit theatres on April 19.
