Directed by Kannan Iyer, "Ek Thi Daayan" released Friday.

The film has been lapped up by the audience and Emraan is 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.
