Earlier this year, Vashu Bhagnani distributed Mona Darling, a film horror/thriller that starred Anshuman Jha, Divya Menon and Suzanna Mukherjee. A little birdie chirped in our ears that the guy behind films like ‘Coolie No. 1’, ‘Hero No. 1’ ,and ‘F.A.L.T.U’ has been bitten by the horror bug – he’s making a horror film now. Some other birdies have told us that he is in fact ‘shooting for the film’ now.
Vashu is no stranger to the realms of ‘hatke’ films. He made a sci-fi film starring his son, Jackky Bhagnani, ‘Kal Kisne Dekha’ way back in 2009. Sci-fi films have yet to take off in India. Apart from the Rakesh Roshan directed ‘Krissh’ series, not many have made their mark. So, anyone trying their hands at sci-fi in Bollywood is a remarkable individual.
Though this is just a rumor that we’ve heard, we are super excited whenever a mainstream name decides to take the plunge into the colorful side of films, the horror, the sci-fi and the occult. We would love to find out whether Vashi is directing and whether Jackky is starring in the film. Well, what can we say, watch this space for any updates that other birdies will be kind enough to chirp in our ears.
If you’d like to know what kind of films spark Vashu’s interest, watch this trailer of the previous horror film that he distributed, Mona Darling:
