Mumbai: The Hungarian film “Liza The Fox-Fairy” will be remade in Hindi as “Aafat-e-Ishq”, starring Neha Sharma.
“‘Aafat-e-Ishq’ is a fresh, dark comedy with a hint of the supernatural that acts as a catalyst. I loved the Hungarian version and while I have tried to take as much influence from it, I am still looking to make it my own. I am extremely thrilled about this and I am looking forward to my fans’ reaction to see me in this character. The film has elements of fun, love, lust, and horror, which make it an intrigue upcoming watch,” Neha said.
The story of the film revolves around a woman’s quest for true love, who finds herself as a prime suspect following a series of deaths, even as an ancient curse looms large, threatening to destroy everything and everyone around.
The Zee5 original film, directed by Indrajit Nattoji, will also feature Ila Arun, Namit Das, Gautam Rode, and Pravessh Rana.
“Liza The Fox-Fairy” is a multi-awarded international Hungarian film which was a success at the box-office. It has won awards at numerous film festivals for Best Film, direction, actress, visual effects and soundtrack.
“This is an interesting concept — dark humour with a pinch of the supernatural — which will be exciting for the audience as well. We have an exciting cast too,” says Aparna Acharekar, Programming Head, Zee5 India.
