A couple of days ahead of the release of his upcoming horror-thriller Ghost, director
Vikram Bhatt hosted a special session on the existence of ghosts along with demonologist
Sarbajeet Mohanty, Pooja Vijay, Actress Sanaya Irani and Shivam Bhargava . Held in
Mumbai, the discussion was fascinating and hair-raising at the same time. Right from
whether or not ghosts exist to them existing in the same room at that time, Bhatt had the
audience hooked onto every word he uttered.
“My strong belief in the existence of ghosts everywhere is the driving force behind making
most of the films you see me helming. I am pretty convinced about the existence of parallel
dimensions and beings that exist in those dimensions. Every film and story you see from
me taps into these thoughts”, says Vikram Bhatt.
Sarbajeet Mohanty, demonologist, added, “It is important for us to understand the details
about ghosts and their existence. A lot of the information and facts about ghosts are
twisted and lost in myths and stereotypes. For example, all ghosts are not to be feared.
Discussions like today’s need to happen more often so we can circulate the right
information. Vikram’s knowledge about ghosts stems from his deep interest in them.”
Bhatt’s Ghost will take you on the riveting journey of Karan Khanna who has been accused
of killing his wife but believes she has been murdered by a spirit. What follows is a story of
inspired and absolute insanity which will have you biting your nails in shock and
fear.Vikram Bhatt shared that the idea of Ghost came to him when he read a newspaper
article about how a British court allowed a matter involving spirits to be tried. He was
intrigued and decided to channel his energy into this film.
Ghost, A Vashu Bhagnani production, directed by Vikram Bhatt will release in cinemas on 18 October.
