HO SAKTA HAI, gets profits for its producer even before release!

Does black magic and occult sciences really exist in today's times or is it a mere figment of our imagination? "Not really. If you believe in it, there are some unexplainable things in life that defy logic and are not mere coincidences either," says Wilson Louis, director of HO SAKTA HAI, India's first film on black magic and Voodoo.
Louis, who is a special effects genius in his own right, admits to having come across incidents that led him to believe the unbelievable. "There was a time not very long ago when I would come across the number 60 at every place I went. It started happening so often that every time I would ventured out, I would notice the number either on a car-plate or building number or some such thing. It was as if there was a message for me waiting to be sent through that number. I have also come across friends who made overnight friends with unexpected people in life and never saw them again," says Louis.
Louis is now planning on an intriguing marketing campaign for the film, where he plans to make black magic a theme at the theatres where it will be released. "We are planning to work on the pre-release campaign in keeping with the subject of the film," he says.
Meanwhile, the producer of the film, Ashok Kotwani of ASHCO ARTS, is more than pleased with his decision to sign Louis as director, what with his film fetching him on-table profit even before its release. The film has been sold out at a good price all over and Kotwani has more than recovered the cost of Rs 1 crore that he had invested in the film.
