I have been analysing and studying Sadhana Ji’s performance from Woh Kaun Thi?, Glenn Close from Fatal Attraction, Janet Leigh from Psycho and Jodie Foster from The Silence Of The Lambs”.

Further on she shares that the above-mentioned actors did a great job and their characters still thrill her. Sunny says, “They are such terrific actors. Their performances will send chills down our spines. They are my reference points and I hope that the audience gets spooked by my performance”. The movie will see Sunny portraying a different role from her previous roles. The movie will release in the Tamil, Hindi, Telugu and Malayalam languages. It will be presented by Ikigai Motion Pictures and bankrolled by Ansari P.
