The Hungarian film Liza The Fox-Fairy is all set to be remade in Hindi by ZEE5 as Aafat-e-Ishq starring Neha Sharma. Aafat-e-Ishq will follow a woman's quest for true love, how she finds herself as a prime suspect under multiple deaths while an ancient curse looms large, threatening to destroy everything and everyone around her. The ZEE5 original film, directed by Indrajit Nattoji, will also feature Ila Arun, Namit Das, Gautam Rode, and Pravessh Rana.
Neha, who was seen in films like, Crook, Tum Bin II, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, is looking forward to the project. "Aafat-e-Ishq is a fresh dark comedy with a hint of supernatural to it which acts as a catalyst throughout the film. I loved the Hungarian version and while I have tried to take as much influence from it, I am still looking at making it my own," the 32-year-old actor said. "The film has all the elements of fun, love, lust, horror which makes it an intrigue upcoming watch to looking out for," she added.
