nothing derogatory. The people in Mumbai and elsewhere have a

round the world. We did a lot of experiments on looks over Skype to
get the look right," the duo said.
"But at the same time we did not intend to go too gory just to
shock or scare people. We wanted to get the right zombie effect,
they look original and authentic," they added. The makers roped in

with make-up guys here to make the zombie's look authentic.
The makers did zombie workshops as they felt the actors need to
be trained in their body language, etc. Releasing on May 10, the
film is produced by Saif. The director duo are not thinking much
about Box Office collection, but hope the audience will like the
