Do you believe in ghosts? If yes, then this might just strengthen your beliefs and if not, then it's really time you start believing. If you think that ghosts only bother regular people, you’re dead wrong. These Bollywood celebrities have experienced some strange and spooky occurrences. Well, it seems ghosts aren't impressed by our A-lister status and this just proves that fact!
Here are some B-town celebs who were haunted by some unwanted ghosts:
Varun Dhawan had a tryst with paranormal activity while shooting for 'ABCD 2' in the US for which local crew had been hired. The actor was put up in the Sinatra suite of a Las Vegas hotel that is supposedly haunted by the ghost of legendary American singer-actor Frank Sinatra. The room was a favorite of Frank Sinatra’s and rumor had it that the legendary singer preferred to stay there even after his death. As Varun explained, the rumor turned out to be true: “The suite was definitely haunted because at night I would hear someone singing and the doors would just fling open.”
Though Ranveer Singh says that he doesn’t believe in ghosts or spirits, he did claim to have a supernatural experience on the sets of ‘Bajirao Mastani’. The actor said it was “a very trippy experience”
when he felt a presence around him and felt that it was Peshwa Bajirao. One day, some white dust settled on a black wall on the set and the dust took the shape of Bajirao. “It has the turban, the eyes, nose, the mooch and the arms,”
Neil Nitin Mukesh
During the movie shoot of '3G'; Neil Nitin Mukesh allegedly spent some time at a haunted location. There was a light boy at the set who allegedly had made complaints about a strange happening. In an instance, the light boy suddenly came running towards the others, claiming that something had been standing by his side and had later passed right through him. At first, everyone thought it was a joke but “when he sat trembling like a leaf is when we sat and heard him out.”
While vacationing with friends in Matheran, Emraan spent some time at a hotel where there were no other guests. One night, they heard loud screaming and decided to investigate; they found no one else in the hotel. Spooked, they spent the entire night in one room while the screaming continued. “We shifted out of that hotel first thing in the morning to a hotel where there were other guests too apart from us,”
This story was narrated not by Nawaz but by ‘Aatma’ director Suparn Verma. According to Verma, during the shooting of a scene, the director realized that the photo frame hanging behind Nawaz had become slightly crooked. However, since the actor was totally engrossed in the scene, the director ignored it. A while later, the photo frame came crashing down despite no breeze and the nail still staying firmly in place.
Bipasha Basu has been a part of many horror films, but she had never expected to come face-to-face with a ghost. Apparently, Bipasha Basu was shooting for ‘Gunah’ at Mukesh Mill when she experienced some strange things. She couldn’t learn her lines in some rooms and even the director claimed that he saw strange things while staying at the mill. A few days later, a girl shooting for another film started acting strange, almost as if she was possessed; she was taken to a hospital where she died. Since then, Bipasha has decided not to work in Mukesh Mill ever again.
This one is the scariest of all! Govinda once claimed that he saw a lady sitting on his chest on a night, while he was shooting for a film. He quickly switched on the lights to see no one to be there in the room. The scary bit is that his room, which was a mess when he slept, was neatly arranged. After this incidence, he was quoted saying, “I got so scared that I ran for my life that night and only stopped when I had reached Mumbai. Whenever I recall that incidence, I get goose-bumps.”
Soha Ali Khan
Soha Ali Khan and her co-star Mahi Gill experienced strange events while shooting for the film ‘Gang of Ghosts’ at a haveli
in Gujarat. The ladies heard unexplained noises coming from empty rooms and felt that some presence would follow them on the sets. They also heard strange noises at night. Says Soha, “Without wasting any time, all the cast and crew members packed up to avoid any unwanted happenings.”
