"These are not facts. It's not a docu-drama. It should not be taken seriously," she told the IANS. She further said, "Everyone needs to read Ved Prakash's books. He always had fans. He never ventured into supernatural. I thought this would be a good platform for the book and the film."
On the other hand, Ek Thi Daayan's co-producer Vishal Bhardwaj said, "I don't believe in all this. I take all this as an entertainment. Let's have fun with this." Directed by Kannan Iyer, the film stars Emraan Hashmi, Konkona Sen Sharma, Huma Qureshi and Kalki Koechlin.
