Bosco ropes in Aditya Seal for dance-based horror comedy, will begin filming by February 2020
Aditya Seal, who was last seen in Karan Johar-produced Student of The Year 2, will play the lead role in Bosco Martis' directorial debut.
Martis, who feels Seal's ' potential has not been fully tapped into yet', tells Mid-Day, "Aditya is a multi-talented artiste, who is a skilled dancer, actor and action performer. He fits the protagonist's shoes perfectly, and his personality will blend well with that of this character. We are finalising the screenplay, and should start the pre-production work by October."
Martis further adds the team aims to begin filming by February 2020.

The film will be Zee Studios' in-house production. The choreographer says he wants to explore his skills in the dancing world, without trying to attempt a film on the lines of Step Up. "So I came up with the concept of a dance-based horror comedy. It sets the platform to create something magical," Martis says in a statement.
"We are happy to have a young, talented performer like Aditya on board. It’s a never-seen-before genre that we are bringing to Indian audiences, especially targeted at kids, pre-teens and teens. The film will be mounted on a huge scale with an interesting ensemble cast. It's a delight to partner with Bosco, not only to direct the film, but also as a judge on our iconic show Dance India Dance," Shariq Patel, CEO, Zee Studios said in a statement.
Martis will also reportedly give a few participants from the reality show an opportunity to feature in his upcoming film.
"I'm taking the prescribed medications, adequate rest and am currently doing fine," Vikrant Massey wrote in his post.
Parineeti Chopra, who is scheduled to start the film later this year, said the script of Animal is "stunning".
