Actor Kunal Khemu, who will be next seen in the zombie comedy 'Go Goa Gone', says the film was once in a lifetime experience for him due to its unusual theme.

The film has Kunal, Vir Das and Anand Tiwari playing three friends who go from Mumbai to Goa in search of fun and adventure. The film is directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK of 'Shor In The City' fame.

"Each day on the sets was new. There was a lot of foreign crew involved in action and prosthetic make up. It was scary seeing the make up being done but it was fun as well. The film has been a joyride and once in a lifetime experience," Kunal


The 29-year-old actor said he was involved in the project from day one with the directors, who had set out to make an action comedy initially.

"Go Goa Gone is the most interesting journey that I set out on with the directors Raj and DK. About three years ago we started writing an action comedy together. Then one day we thought how would it be if we removed the criminals in this film and replaced it with zombies? We started working on that and broke down the original script," said Kunal.

The actor said they were worried about getting a producer for this film but luckily Saif Ali Khan showed interest and decided to take the film under his banner Illuminati films.

"We didn't know how to pitch it to people. Many don't know what zombies are. We didn't know if anyone would be interested in making a film like that. Luckily the right producers have come on board.

"My directors approached Saif. He had seen our earlier film '99' and liked it. They met him to discuss the project and Saif showed interest. He has a special appearance in the film, it is a very interesting role." Kunal said they have made the film keeping in mind that the concept of zombies is new in India.
