Amazon Prime Video has released the trailer of Nushrratt Bharuccha’s upcoming horror film Chhorii. The film is the official Hindi remake of the award-winning and critically acclaimed Marathi film Lapachhapi.
In the film, Nushrratt Bharuccha plays a pregnant woman who is forced to go into hiding and lands up in a horror house. The trailer reveals that Sakshi (Nushrratt) and her partner are running away from life-challenging circumstances when they land up at a horror house situated in the heart of a sugarcane field.
An old couple resides there too and knows about the haunted house but don’t tell Sakshi about it. Eventually, Sakshi begins to explore the property when she sees three mysterious kids who scare her day in and out and crosses paths with a charred ghost who seems to be behind Sakshi’s unborn child.
Directed by Vishal Furia, Chhorii also stars Mita Vashisht, Rajesh Jais, Saurabh Goyal, and Yaaneea Bharadwaj.
