Bollywood actor Kunal Khemu is very excited about his upcoming movie ‘Go Goa Gone’. The actor said that the zombie comedy was ‘once in a lifetime opportunity’.
“Each day on the sets was new. There was a lot of foreign crew involved in action and prosthetic make up. It was scary seeing the make up being done but it was fun as well. The film has been a joyride and once in a lifetime experience,” said Kunal Khemu to PTI.
The movie directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, stars Kunal Khemu, Vir Das and Anand Tiwari in lead roles. The movie tells a story of three friends who go from Mumbai to Goa in search of fun and adventure.
The actor, who has been part of the project from day one, revealed that earlier he and the directors were keen on making an action comedy but later replaced action with zombies.
“‘Go Goa Gone’ is the most interesting journey that I set out on with the directors Raj and DK. About three years ago we started writing an action comedy together. Then one day we thought how would it be if we removed the criminals in this film and replaced it with zombies? We started working on that and broke down the original script,” said Kunal.
Kunal Khemu admitted that he was worried about finding someone to produce the project but is glad that Saif Ali Khan is going to produce ‘Go Goa Gone’.
“We didn't know how to pitch it to people. Many don't know what zombies are. We didn't know if anyone would be interested in making a film like that. Luckily the right producers have come on board,” he said.
"My directors approached Saif. He had seen our earlier film 99 and liked it. They met him to discuss the project and Saif showed interest. He has a special appearance in the film, it is a very interesting role," he concluded.
