Saif steals a march over Abhay’s zombie film

It looks like an advantage for Saif in the battle of the zombies at the box-office. While Navdeep Singh had planned his Abhay Deol-Genelia D’Souza-Kushal Punjabi starrer Rock The Shaadi as the first zombie film in Hindi, Genelia D’Souza’s wedding plans have pushed the film forward leaving the fright field clear for the competitor to romp to finish-line first.

Apparently, after hearing of the postponement of the long schedule of Rock The Shaadi from January to the end of the March, co-directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK rushed for another long spell of shooting for their zombie film Go Goa Gone in Goa, thereby bringing the film’s entire shooting to near-completion.

Kunal Khemu who plays the lead in Go Goa Gone confirms the unit has just returned from shooting in Goa, and that they’ve nearly completed the film.

Says Kunal, “We’ve just about ten days of shooting left. I don’t know about the progress on the other film. But we’re almost done and will be releasing soon.”

On him being cast for the film, Kunal protests shyly, “My doing this had nothing to do with Saif or Soha. I’ve worked with the co-directors Raj and Krishna before in 99 and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Coincidentally that film had Soha opposite me. But we met much before 99, during a film called Dhoondte Reh Jaoge.”

As for Rock The Shaadi, the release date will now be decided after the next postponed schedule in March-end. Kushal Punjabi who plays one of the leads says, “We wanted to be the first zombie film. And we’re still trying. But yes, our schedule has been postponed. And I am starting another film in January which I had earlier said no to because of the long Shaadi schedule.”

Rock The Shaadi co-producer Sid Jain feels the competition from the other zombie films would have no impact on their film. “Historically in Hollywood, among new genre films, subsequent films have benefited, due to more audience acceptability. Both, our film and Go Goa Gone have great directors, so the audience will want more, once they see the films. I personally think, the third zombie film featuring Luke Kenny will reap the best bounty.”
