We announce a partnership with @DailyhuntApp for the talent hunt that y’all have been waiting for! Auditions to open soon.#RosieTheSaffronChapter #Rosie #RosieTalentHunt #PrernaVArora pic.twitter.com/u7QKd9usiq
In an earlier tweet, Oberoi had promised to cast new talent for a prominent role in the film alongside the lead artistes, for which he had promised to launch a talent hunt.
The death by suicide of actor Sushant Singh Rajput last month has sparked a debate in the Hindi film industry on discrimination and nepotism. Oberoi himself has spoken of 'groups' in the industry. So the talent hunt by his team seems to be a step in the right direction.

Meanwhile, the film's motion poster shows a sketch of a mall and a woman. But it's the eerie music that captures your attention. The supernatural thriller is said to be based on events that happened a few years ago in Gurugram (Gurgaon), Haryana.
