Jeethu Joseph's next is yet to be titled suspense-thriller an official remake of the 2012 Spanish film 'The Body'. While reports confirmed that Emraan Hashmi will play the lead. After 'Raman Raghav' and 'Kaalakaandi', Sobhita will play the lead in this upcoming thriller. The film's shoot begins in Mumbai today and will take off to Mauritius next week for a start-to-finish schedule. The film is expected to wrap up by July end.
"We will be filming both indoors and outdoors but my portions have a little more to do with staying inside. It’s a gripping film which unravels over one night, narrated through several flashbacks," says the co-producer of the film Mr. Sunir Khetrapal.
"I'm yet to meet Emraan but I've seen his work and he comes across as a sincere actor. I'm looking forward to working with him," says Sobhita. Mentioning Jeethu's finest work so far which is the award-winning Malayalam thriller, 'Drishyam', Sobhita calls him a "talented filmmaker who has a way of keeping his audience hooked to the story”. “The Body is not so much about fear as about mind games and word play. It keeps you guessing throughout. There is a lot of talent crossover from the south, which is great. I am a geek off-screen and it will be enriching to work with people from different cultures," she signed off.
