If the 'scary beginning' for Ek Thi Daayan has been in the news ever since its promo hit the screens, there is more. Emraan Hashmi, whose 'desi' mass appeal has been fetching him superb box office success rate lately, is now seeing an international collaboration as well, a la Shahrukh Khan
"As has already been hinted in the background theme of the forthcoming Emraan Hashmi-starrer, sound plays a very important role in getting the chills and thrills. Unlike a routine horror affair where it is all noise and fury that fills the narrative, the music of Ek Thi Daayan scores in its calmness. In fact this is the first time that the music of his film is being processed internationally. Otherwise the only one whose films have crossed Indian boundaries is Shahrukh Khan whose Ra.One and Om Shanti Om were musically processed in Prague," claims a source.
Even though there are good facilities in Mumbai for getting the required effects, co-producers Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj were of the view that an international treatment to the music would make it a further quality affair. Not to mention the fact that musically, an Emraan Hashmi-Vishal Bhardwaj combination is already being looked at as pretty huge in its own right!
"Emraan's previous horror flick, Raaz 3 , was a massive hit, and with Ek Thi Daayan the stakes have only risen. It isn't going to be just another film for everyone associated with it," the source adds, "While the theme sound of the film carries an international feel to it and would remind the audience of many a Hollywood classic, Vishal is also making sure that songs carry a world class mood to them. This is the reason why he is traveling with Clinton Cerejo to London on Sunday to mix the soundtrack".
