Ek Thi Daayan actress Konkona Sen Sharma was almost going to miss out on the film. Sources reveal that co-producers, Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj, apparently clashed over her casting in the film. Vishal was keen to have Konkona on board, but Ekta was not ready.
Ekta was quoted saying that she did protest and that she thought Konkona would be arty, but when she saw the rushes, she found the actress, spectacular. The film, also starring Emraan Hashmi, Huma Qureshi and Kalki Koechlin, is directed by Kannan Iyer.
