Mumbai, Mar 1 : Actress Kalki Koechlin has been signed as the female lead of Vishal Bharadwaj's forthcoming film, ‘Daayan' opposite Emraan Hashmi.
Earlier, both Rani Mukherjee and Vidya Balan were offered the role, but they reportedly turned it down.
“My next film is ‘Daayan' of Vishal Bharadwaj. It is a supernatural mystery.
It is kind of a magical film. It is not a horror film. I can't talk much about it,” Kalki told reporters here, last evening on the sidelines of the launch of a new collection of handbags here.
Though ‘That Girl in Yellow Boots' star is working with Vishal for the first time, she is all praise for the filmmaker.
“Vishalji is amazing and talented person. He is not only a director, a music composer, writer..he can do everything.
It is fantastic to work with him. I am big fan of him and have liked all his films like ‘Maqbool', ‘Omkara', ‘Kaminey',” Kalki said.
