Previously too, 'Ragini MMS' (2011) contained the prayer revealing producer Ekta Kapoor's superstitious side.
"Ekta believes that the incorporation of the prayer has been lucky and will ward off any unwanted negativity against the film given its horrex (horror and sex) genre," sources said.
"The film will begin with a special montage of scenes from the original cut to the auspicious Hanuman Chalisa," sources added.
Directed by Bhushan Patel, the film also stars Sandhya Mridul, Parveen Dabas, Saahil Prem and Divya Dutta. It releases on March 21.
