Emraan Hashmi starrer ‘Ek Thi Daayan’, which also casts three beautiful actresses Huma Qureshi, Konkona Sen Sharma, Kalki Koechlin has been doing really well on the box office. The lead actor of the film, Emraan Hashmi says that the performance of the three actresses in the movie overshadows his own.
Ek Thi Daayan, a co production of Vishal Bharadwaj and Ekta Kapoor is a story about a magician and a witch with Emraan Hashmi as the magician in the movie.
“I will be very happy if all the three women get their due in the film. They are better than me. I will be more than happy,” said Emraan.
On being asked if he’s been competing with the three stunning actresses in the film and fears his performance would go unnoticed because of them, Emraan said, “You never compete with the people in your crew, you have your own team”
“Competition is only with those people, whose film is releasing alongside on Friday and never with one’s own team” added the actor.
Ek Thi Daayan, directed by Kannan Iyer, released on Friday and has been appreciated by the audience and Emraan seems to be happy about it.
“There have been many screenings (of Ek Thi Daayan) since the last two days. And as an actor, we lose the objectivity a little as our love is attached with the film. But when we get the same response from others, it’s exciting.” Emraan said. “So we are very excited. People are saying that this (Ek Thi Daayan) is the best horror film of our country. So, I am really excited to see their reaction towards the weekend.” he added.
Though Ek Thi Daayan has done quite good in the Indian scene, it got a dull opening in the international markets. Although there weren’t any big competitors, the movie has got an average response at the overseas box office in it’s first weekend.
