During his interaction with the media, Kunal said, “1978 – A Teen Night Out” is a Bollywood Horror-Thriller. It is the first teen horror film ever made in India and has been shot at an actual horror location in Trombay, Mumbai. The film is set in the 1970s and has a racy, supernatural, terrifying, suspense story of a night out by a group of teens at a haunted film studio. The film follows seven teenagers who find their lives in jeopardy after getting trapped in a haunted mansion. One of the unique things about this film is that all the actors have themselves sung the songs.”

During the conference, Kunal also shared the shooting process with the media. He said, “The actors, directors and all the crew members of the film have done fabulous work.

It is a fast movie with succinct dialogues targeting the young generation, school and college students who like watching horror and thriller movies.”
He added, “The film has got all the elements of a good horror flick and we are confident of the content. All the newcomers have done an excellent job and have gone beyond our expectations in terms of performances, which have contributed immensely to making the film an entertaining one.”
