Producer Ekta Kapoor, who is all set for her
upcoming film Ek Thi Daayan, says she is not
trying to promote superstition through her movie. Ek Thi
Daayan is a supernatural thriller which stars Emraan Hashmi,
Konkana Sen Sharma, Kalki Koechlin and Huma Qureshi in the lead
"Through this film we are not promoting superstition. We are not
taking the supernatural element seriously in the film. We have done
it in a fun and entertaining way," Ekta told reporters here at a
promotional event. Producer Vishal Bharadwaj said, "I don't believe
in supernatural power. We are taking it in entertaining way. We
have done it all in fun way."
Bharadwaj feels writers are backbone of the film and more and
more writers are needed in the industry. "We have fewer writers in
industry today as they eventually become directors. We need more
and more writers. Writers are not respected. We need good writers,"
he said. The film, produced jointly by Kapoor and Bharadwaj,
releases on April 18.
