One can’t deny that at some point in our lives we have heard stories of paranormal activities that were witnessed by someone we know or we may have experienced them ourselves.
If you don’t believe in ghosts by now, we hate to break it to ya but these creepy celebrity encounters will help prove otherwise. Grab the popcorn, a blanket, and maybe even a friend or two for moral support. Ahead, 10 ghost stories told by celebs.
1- Emraan Hashmi
Emraam Hashmi was holidaying in Matheran with his friends when they were staying in a hotel where there was nobody apart from them. They all heard someone screaming really loud. They all went out from their room searching for the screaming man, but couldn’t find anyone. They spent a restless night and the screaming wouldn’t stop. They shifted out of that hotel first thing in the morning.
2- Saroj Khan
Saroj Khan was staying at a hotel with her troupe when they heard someone shifting the furniture in the room above. When they called the reception to stop the noise, the phone was found dead. When someone went downstairs to report the incident, they told them that there was no floor above.
3- Bipasha Basu
Bipasha Basu was shooting for Gunah at Mukesh Mill when she noticed strange incidents there. She was apparently not able to learn her lines in some of the rooms. Sometime later, another actress was shooting at the same location for some other film, and she started behaving like she was possessed. Thereafter, she was taken to a hospital where she died.
4- Soha Ali Khan
While shooting for ‘Gangs of Ghosts, Soha Ali Khan and her co-star Mahi Gill experienced weird instances on the sets. They would hear unexplained noises from vacant rooms. Without wasting any time, all the cast and crew members packed up to avoid any unwanted happenings.
5- Neil Nitin Mukesh
While shooting for a horror flick 3G at a haunted location, the light boy on the sets came running to him telling that he saw someone standing by his side who later passed right through him.
“At first we thought he was joking trying to create sensation but then when he sat trembling like a leaf Is when we sat and heard him out,” he had tweeted.
6- Ram Gopal Verma
Ram Gopal Varma got so much attached to his ghostly character Manjeet, who was a ghost in his film ‘Bhoot’, that he saw him walking beside his bed after wrapping the 3 AM shoot. He said that she heard the footsteps but there was nobody.
“The director in me was telling me Manjeet couldn’t be there. But the man in me was insisting that he was.”
7- Nawazuddin Siddiqui
On the sets of Aatma, a lot of eerie incidents took place that left them all dumbstruck. Nawaz was shooting for a scene when a photo-frame hanging on the wall behind tilted and later crashed on the floor “despite there being no breeze in the room nor had the nail it was hanging on fallen.”
Ghostly experiences are quite commonly heard in hilly regions. Govinda also had one. While shooting for a film in some hilly area, he was staying in a hotel. In the middle of the night, when he woke up, he saw a woman sitting on his chest. Not only that, he said that the room didn’t look neat when he woke up.
“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,” Govinda told.
9- Varun Dhawan
While shooting for ABCD 2, Varun Dhawan was staying in a hotel, which was legendary singer Frank Sinatra’s favourite. He was put up in a suite that was said to be haunted by the ghost of the actor-singer.
After a long, tiring day of shoot, when Varun went back to his room to sleep, he heard some strange sounds and the door creaked open on its own.
“The suite was definitely haunted because at night I would hear someone singing and the doors would just fling open,” Varun had shared.
10- Ranveer Singh
“It was a very trippy experience and I completely freaked out. I recall it as one of the most difficult days of the shoot. I thought I felt some kind of presence and something told me it’s him… I had a tough task ahead of me on that day of shoot and I was praying hard to get it right. There was a black wall on the sets on which some white dust had settled and formed the pattern in the shape of Bajirao’s figure. It had the turban, the eyes, nose, the mooch and the arms. The resemblance was for all to see.”
Ranveer said that it could be his mind playing tricks but he had a strong instinctive feeling.
