Ekta Kapoor mein kuch to hai

SHE'S WORKING very hard. The mixing of Ekta Kapoor's production "Kuch To Hai" which opens this Friday is on full swing.

"I don't have to time to eat, sleep or breathe properly," she sighs before rushing off to the studio.

"We had to rush to the deadline to beat the World Cup. I guess deadlines are part of my kundali. But I'm really proud of what we've achieved in "Kuch To Hai". It's turned into a really scary movie, just as I had hoped it would be."

Budgeted at Rs. 14 crores, the film boasts of many firsts: it's the first campus horror tale in mainstream Hindi.

Many more such films are on the way. For the first time, two unconnected directors (not like Abbas-Mustan) Anurag Basu, who directed 30 per cent of the film, and Anil Vishkarma, who completed the rest, are being jointly credited in the titles. And by the way, Jeetendra plays his own son's father.

Now Ekta wants to make another horror movie, this time with Aftab Shivdasani in the lead.

There's also an idea in Ekta Kapoor's hyper head to remake the Brad Pitt hit "Sleepers" with five youngsters from Bollywood. She is keen to sign Priyanshu Chatterjee for one of the roles. "He's really hot," she enthuses.

Any plans of another film with brother Tusshar? "Yes, to be directed by Abbas-Mustan. And if after "Kuch To Hai" he gives me date problems I'll go personally and drag him out of the house. And it's okay if he complains to his mom. She's my co-producer," chuckles Ekta.
