The teaser that was recently released does show us glimpses of the castle with indeed has an eerie feel to it.

On his experience directing a horror film at a location said to be haunted for real, Director Bhushan Patel says, “The story has a lot of suspense and horror elements and we thought it would be ideal to shoot at a location that has the haunting feel to it.
