Emraan Hashmi has been known for his romantic songs in films. The actor has a fantastic track record for the hit love songs in his career and keeping his image in mind, filmmaker and composer Vishal Bhardwaj has agreed to choreograph a song for Emraan in his forthcoming production Ek Thi Daayan. The film is being directed by debutant Kannan Iyer.

Vishal Bhardwaj is a kind of producer who never interferes with his directors however new they are. But in the case of Ek Thi Daayan which is a super-natural thriller, the filmmaker-composer is all set to debut as a choreographer for a sensuous song in the film with Emraan Hashmi and Huma Qureshi. The song composed by Bhardwaj himself has lyrics by Gulzar.

Debutant director Kannan Iyer seems only too happy to step aside for his producer-composer, “This is one of Vishal Bhardwaj’s most sensuous compositions ever. And being as involved as he is with his music, he wanted to choreograph the song himself. After all, he understands the nuances of this song better than anyone else.”

Vishal Bhardwaj is currently busy wrapping up his Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola however he has promised to wield the mega phone for the song in Ek Thi Daayan for the next couple of days. As for Emraan, this would be his next film after two back to back super hits Raaz 3 and Jannat 2. “Emraan is happy with the decision; he does not want to let go of the momentum,” says a source close to the unit.

Ek Thi Daayan co-produced by Balaji and Vishal Bhardwaj Productions is slated for April 18 release.

With the kind of news that the upcoming film Ek Thi Daayan has been making, courtesy, the constant inflow of four legged visitors and likes, one really wonders what will happen to the film when it actually releases!

The latest update is that a pack of monkeys recently visited the sets of the film and needless to say that, they created a lot of ruckus on the sets delaying the shoot for some time. Since it’s a sync sound film, the shoot had to be stalled until all noise ceased. Speaking about the incident, Tanuj Garg, (CEO-Balaji Motion Pictures) said that, “We had to call in extra security to control them and get them out. But in a few minutes they came back again. There was some delay but we couldn’t help the situation.”

News has it that the monkeys were cleared out of the sets but they came back again after some time. The film is being co-produced by Vishal Bhardwaj and Ekta Kapoor, and stars Emraan Hashmi, Konkona Sen Sharma and Kalki Koechlin in the lead roles.
