After Iti, Prerna Arora and Vivek Anand Oberoi announce their second film with Vishal Mishra, ROSIE – THE SAFFRON CHAPTER
ROSIE - The Saffron Chapter: India’s first horror-thriller based on true events
After the announcement of Iti, Mandiraa and Vivek Anand Oberoi have come together again for their second film, Rosie-The Saffron Chapter. It is set to be India’s first horror thriller based on true events and is being produced by Mandiraa Entertainment and Oberoi Mega Entertainment.
ROSIE – The Saffron Chapter will also be helmed by Vishal Mishra, who is known for Coffee With D and more recently, Iti.
Based on true events that took place in Gurugram, ROSIE is planned as a horror-thriller franchise. The first part, Saffron Chapter is based in the Saffron BPO, considered as one of the most haunted places in Gurugram. The story revolves around a girl called Rosie who was an employee in this BPO.
In the light of recent events and discussions around nepotism, the makers have also decided to launch a nation-wide hunt for a new face that will star in a prominent role in the film. The details would be made available soon on official movie handles, @RosieIsComing along with the announcement of the lead cast.
Vivek Anand Oberoi, producer says, “With my new venture, I want to support the concept-driven films that I believe can change the movie landscape in their respective genres. And not just the film, but also make way for new talent. With Rosie, I hope to achieve both. It’s a franchise and with every sequel, we hope to introduce someone new in the industry.”
Prerna V Arora says, “I’m thoroughly excited with the concept of Rosie, and we want to develop this as our in-house franchise brand. We want to tell different and novel stories, especially based on true incidents. An idea or the talent can come from anywhere, and we want to be able to facilitate them through such films and such initiatives.“
Girish Johar, the producer says, “Vishal always comes up with very novel ideas and unique concepts. Rosie, especially, is a hair-raising story. This is an in-house branded franchise, which we want to develop and explore. The minute I heard the story, along with producers Kussum & Reshabh, I was sure to back this up. This film is expected to redefine the horror genre in India and leave you wanting for more.”
The film is expected to go on floors by September 2020 and release shortly after. Rosie: The Saffron Chapter is presented by Mandiraa Entertainment and Oberoi Mega Entertainment, and produced by Vivek Anand Oberoi, Girish Johar, Kussum Arora, Reshabh D. Saraf, Keyur Pandya, and Sanjeet S. Yermal.
