IT’S OFFICIAL… Emraan Hashmi to star in #Hindi remake of #Malayalam supernatural thriller #Ezra… Directed by Jay Krishnan [he directed the original]… Will be shot in #Mumbai and #Mauritius… Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak, Krishan Kumar and Abhishek Pathak.

“Horror is a genre with immense potential. A well-made horror film will always draw audiences in huge numbers to cinema halls,” Emraan said in a statement.

“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 at the helm of things all I can say is be prepared for one hell of a spooky ride.”

Famous for thrilling scenes with Raaz: The Mystery Continues, Raaz 3: The Third Dimension and Ek Thi Daayan, Emraan was last seen in 2016 film Raaz Reboot. The actor was recently seen in social message driven films Baadshaho and Why Cheat India.

Producer Abhishek said: 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 work with Emraan for our third collaboration after ‘Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji’ and the untitled Amitji-Emraan film which is under-production.”

Krishnan says the movie will come with a “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,” he said.
