The very prominent actress Konkona Sen Sharma enacts as one of the lead heroine in Vishal Bhardwaj's upcoming film 'Ek Thi Daayan', which is based on evil practices conducted by witches. Well many would not know that the film is actually based on her father Mukul Sharma's book. It's been said that Witch Craft is very rampant in Bengal, and Mukul Sharma being a writer had himself and personally observed witches and their practices very closely, which shows that he is very much aware of the cult in Bengal.
As Konkona Sen Sharma was grown up in Kolkatta itself, where witch craft is being carried out on a large scale, she understood the nuances and intricacies of her character far better than anyone else, and thus this had actually helped her to perform well in the film.
Directed by Kannan Iyer, the film also stars Emraan Hashmi and Huma Qureshi in lead roles.
