Horror genre, as far as Hindi films are concerned, has a lot of grounds to cover. And Hemant Madhukar is up for the challenge.

The director-producer is on a high these days as he’s upbeat about his forthcoming horror film. Titled Mumbai 125 Km, with Veena Malik and Karanvir Bohra amongst others in the star cast, the film is slated to release on October 17.
The theatrical promo was recently uploaded on YouTube and within two weeks, the views hit the one million mark. Interestingly, the film is a dark fantasy as it was shot within 82 nights.
True to its title, it was shot on the Mumbai-Pune highway and the shoots were completely nocturnal. And if that isn’t intriguing enough, the technology employed to shoot the film is first-of-its-kind in the country. Called Stereoscopic technology, the last Hollywood film to employ it was The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014).
