While the book ranks among the top detective novels of Japan with news of a Hollywood adaptation also in the pipeline, director Sujoy Ghosh (of KAHAANI fame) will front line the suspense thriller.
Bollywood's versatile actress Kagana Ranaut has signed on as the protagonist in the thrilling cat and mouse game. The actress who has been applauded for her performances, and has recently bagged the Filmfare award for Best Actress for QUEEN, is all set to start shooting for the film this year.
Confirming the news, director Sujoy Ghosh says, ''Now that we have Saif and Kangana, our acting department is in very safe and competent hands. They will fly the film. I can now happily concentrate on the thriller part of the film.''
