It seems fans will have to wait a little longer to be scared by Hide & Seek. The release of the edge of your seat thriller has been pushed forward a month and is now set to get your heart pumping with its twists, turns and chills on March 12th.
Produced by Apoorva Lakhia and directed by newcomer and former Apoorva assistant Shawn Arranha, the story of the film starts with six young friends playing Hide & Seek on Christmas Eve, but something terrible happens. 12 years later, they have to play once again and this time it is for their lives! Hide & Seek has a young cast full of up-and-coming fabulous actors including: Amruta Patki, Mrinalini Sharma, Ayaz Khan, Samir Kocchar, Arjan Bawja and Purab Kohli.
About why they decided to push the release date forward, Apoorva told BollySpice, “After much thought we and MoserBaer decided to push the film forward as we got a very good response from guest screenings. We feel that people should get a chance to watch the film as Shawn has made a very good film. We decided to delay the release as we did not feel we could compete with all the big films coming out and the rush of releases in the coming 3 weeks, both in publicity and theatre space. 12th of March is good date as we are a word of mouth film.”
Commenting on the delay, the director Shawn Arranha said, “If you have a good product, be patient, give the film it’s due and the film will get what it deserves.”
We know we can’t wait to find out what went wrong that fateful night, but we will have to wait until March 12th to see who wins the game!
