Actress Vedika after Paradesi and Kaaviya Thalaivan, is making her Bollywood debut. She plays the lead role opposite Emraan Hashmi.

Jeetu Joseph, who directed Kamal Haasan in Papanaasam, is wielding the megaphone for the Bollywood venture.

The film is a remake of the Spanish thriller The Body. While Rishi Kapoor essays a crucial role, Sobhita Dhulipala of Kaalaakandi fame is playing a key character.

Jeetu Joseph reveals that Vedika was chosen for the role after several auditions and a nation-wide hunt for the perfect cast.

"Vedika’s character is of a young college-going girl who has this innocence about her. She fits it to a T. I am confident that audience would lap up the fresh pair Emraan and Vedika."
