The story of ‘Ek Thi Dayaan’ is based on  Konkona Sen Sharma’s father Mukul Sharma‘s book

Konkona’s upcoming film ‘Ek Thi Daayan’ is based on a subject she has been aware of. Not much is about the plot of the supernatural thriller except that it involves something to do with witchcraft. Very few people are aware of the fact that the story of the film is based on Konkona’s father Mukul Sharma‘s book. Mukul is a columnist of Times Of India and based his book on observations he made in Bengal. It is said that witch craft is very rampant in Bengal and Sharma became very aware of the cult in Bengal and observed witches and their craft.

Since Konkana Sen also grew up in Kolkata where witch craft is practiced on a large scale, she could grasp the nuances and intricacies of her role and this knowledge and awareness really helped her perform well. Director Kannan Iyer was confident that she would absorb the concept very fast and being the excellent actress she is has performed the role to the hilt.
