Actress Vishakha Singh of Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya fame, has essayed the role of a ghost in upcoming Tamil horror film Bayam Oru Payanam, which was recently wrapped up in Chennai.
"Our search for a heroine who plays the ghost was very long until we decided upon Vishakha Singh. Her transformation into the given role in no time speaks volume about her professionalism," the film's director Manisharma told IANS.
The film also features Bharath, Meenakshi Dixit, Urvashi and Singam Puli in important roles.
Talking about her dedication, he said: "While we were shooting in Munnar for a lengthy schedule of 20 days and long nights, she braved the leaches and snakes. Her tireless effort amidst the tough, unfriendly conditions proves the fact that she is hungry for performance-oriented roles."
He added that Vishakha cared the least for looks.
According to the director, the film is a true-blue horror outing.
"We were aware of the fact that too many horror movies were already released while some are on floors. In 'Bayam Oru Payanam', we have no combination of humour or sentiment. When we call it a horror film, it stays as a horror film," he added.
Emphasizing on YR Prasad's music, which will play a crucial role in the story, Manisharma said that the film and its music will haunt audiences.
