‘I am very excited because I am coming after a long time as I had a baby. Now my baby is a little older and I have come back with quite an interesting film,’ said the actress who gave birth to her son in 2011. ‘This is the first time I am doing horror and I am collaborating with some great people like Vishal, Ekta, Huma (Qureshi), so I am very excited about it,’ she said.
‘There is so much collaboration with such great talent together... like who wouldn’t want to work with Vishal? I really want to work with Balaji (Ekta’s Balaji Motion Pictures) as well. Besides, my father has written a short story 20 years ago on which the film is based upon,’ added the actress whose last full-fledged role was in Mirch.
