India will soon have its own 'Zombie Film', a cult film genre that has not been attempted extensively by Indian filmmakers so far. It is titled SHAADI OF THE DEAD and will star Abhay Deol who will play a Zombie.

The actor-star has the penchant to venture into uncharted and untried territories. The film is being developed by iRock. Sidhartha Jain, the CEO of the Company, announced this while participating in a panel discussion on 'Market Research for Indian Cinema: Gut Feel vs. Market Realities' on the second day of FICCI FRAMES 2011, an annual convention of the media and entertainment industry. Zombie films in the west have a cult following and some of the top-notch directors like Danny Boyle have attempted this genre. It is not that Indians have not had a taste of such films. Most of the Ramsey Brothers' horror movies can be categorised as softer and less surreal versions of regular Zombie fare. Zombies are dead people, who are reanimated as mindless and disfigured creatures. These films are pure fantasies and are characterized by free flowing blood and gore, and extreme kind of unappetizing and mindless mayhem.
