It is going to be all about fear and lots of laughter! This might sound like a paradox, but Illuminati Films and Eros International have decided to push the envelope for Indian cinema with their next film - Go Goa Gone starring Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwary and Puja Gupta.
The zombie comedy, directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, is all set to release on May 10th, 2013. Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan plays a Russian mafia lord in his next flick, Go Goa Gone. And to look the part, Saif sports blonde hair and several tattoos in the upcoming zombie comedy.
“I loved Boris the first time I discovered him. He is tough and cool, but also very funny. I was very excited to play Boris the zombie hunter and even happier to produce this film,” said the 42-year-old actor.
Go Goa Gone is an unusual mixture of hilarious comedy, camaraderie, slick action and zombies. Raj says, "A zombie film in Hindi was unheard of until then." DK adds, "But we were sure that this is the film we would like to make after Shor In The City."
Saif, who has acted and produced the film, play Boris who is a Russian Mafia Lord. "I loved Boris 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," says Saif.
Dinesh Vijan, co-founder of Illuminati Films explains, "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! Hopefully it'll be a genre defining film for us."
"We have always liked being associated with cinema that's a keeper. Go Goa Gone will be that one film you will find hard to forget and would want to go back and watch. It is always about taking the next step in the movie business and we are glad we are a part of this project," says Sunil Lulla, Managing Director of Eros International Media Ltd.
After successfully making romantic comedies, the makers are ready to introduce a new genre of zom-com. Watch out for the trailer, which will be unveiled soon.
