Jeethu Joseph’s Hindi debut begins filming
The horror mystery thriller, starring Emraan Hashmi and Rishi Kapoor, will be filmed in a single schedule
Drishyam-fame filmmaker Jeethu Joseph has begun work on his Bollywood debut. The director took to Facebook to announce the news.
"Kickstarted my first Bollywood film starring Emraan Hashmi and Rishi Kapoor. Thanks a lot to all my audiences who gave me all the support and had me in your prayers. Hoping to have your prayers and support for my new venture as well," he said.
The project, which is a horror mystery thriller, was first announced by AZURE Entertainment and Viacom18 Motion Pictures in February.
The two main protagonists are played by Rishi Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi. The latter recently said in an interview that the film will be "a riveting, nail-biting treat for fans of the genre and with Jeethu at the helm of things, I'm confident the film will be a game-changer."
Jeethu will be busy with the shoot of this film before he moves on to his next Malayalam film which was announced recently with Kalidas Jayaram as the main lead. The filming will reportedly go on from May to July in a single schedule.
The director's last film Aadhi was one of the biggest grossers of this year. The filmmaker and crew recently celebrated the film's 100-days run.
