There’s strong buzz that Vishal Furia, the celebrated director of ‘Lapachhapi’ will make a short film. Sources say that he has had a couple of meetings with a leading production house. Sources confirm that the last meeting took place sometime last week.
If all goes well, they will soon collaborate on a short film. Sources tell us that the production house exclusively makes films that have horror and supernatural concepts. This makes us wonder whether their collaboration could be a horror short film.
Also, there’s no word whether it will be a short film in Marathi or in Hindi. Vishal has worked for more than 10 years in the Hindi television industry. Vishal also directed the pilot episode of the Zee TV series, ‘Fear Files’, which is again a horror based show. Interestingly, ‘Fear Files’ also went the online way on Netflix’s ‘Fear Files – Har Mod Pe Darr’. So, there’s always the possibility that Vishal will direct something for Netflix’s version of Fear Files.
Meanwhile, Vishal’s directorial debut ‘Lapachhapi’ is going great guns at the box office. Critics as well as audiences have embraced it, with some critics calling it the best horror film in Marathi as well as Hindi cinema.
