We caught up with the producer, the lead stars of the film and the TV series at the 'first look' launch party of the film.
Konkona Sen Sharma who stars in the film, was queried on which medium she feels is stronger. To this, Konkona replied, "TV and films are two different mediums. I don't think it's really fair to compare. Television has its own pros and cons. Films have their own issues. But I think both are very powerful medium. That's the most important thing today."
Meanwhile, small-screen's favourite bahu Sakshi Tanwar, is hoping for a hit. "I feel it is a unique and a beautiful concept to bring together leading ladies of television and make a show with them. Stories from different states will be presented and the different concepts of the film will be shown in the show. I have a feeling that it will work," said Sakshi.
The lead stars of the film - Emraan Hashmi, Kalki Koechlin, Huma Qureshi, Konkona Sen Sharma - are set to do a cameo in this eight-part TV drama. Director Vishal Bhardwaj and Ekta have also been roped in.
Ek Thi Daayan releases on April 18.
