MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan is all set to play a zombie hunter in his next film Illuminati Films and Eros International’s ‘Go Goa Gone’. His completely different look in the film is now revealed.
The film which is touted to be a horror as well as a laughter ride, has us in confusion about its genre. It’s difficult to imagine the audience laughing one moment and screaming in terror in the other, but that’s what the makers of ‘Go Goa Gone’ promise!
Director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K who last created ‘Shor in the City’ are back together for this film.
Says Nidimoru “A zombie film in Hindi was unheard of until now.” Krishna DK chips in his bit, “But we were sure that this is the film we would like to make after ‘Shor In The City’.”
Saif Ali Khan, who is not only acting in the film but is also producing it says “I loved Boris (Saif’s character – a Russian Mafia Lord) from the first time I discovered him. He is tough and cool, but also very funny. He has a good heart and is brave. The dynamics between him and the boys is hysterical. I was very excited to play Boris the zombie hunter and even happier to produce this film.”
Saif Ali Khan sports a completely different avatar for the film with golden blonde hair, tattoos all over his arm. Armed with two guns the actor has gone all out rugged.
“There hasn’t been a character like Boris or a concept like this on Indian screens. This is exactly what got us excited to make this film. The zombies will keep you on the edge of your seat and the humour will make you fall of it – making it a zombie comedy… a ‘Zom-Com’!” said producer Dinesh Vijan of Illuminati Films.
‘Go, Goa Gone’ also features Kunal Khemu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwary and Puja Gupta. It is all set to release on May 10, 2013.
