Watch: Fulfilling the mark of an ace actor, Vicky Kaushal overcomes his water phobia and takes the horror genre in stride for ‘Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship’ in this BTS video


Vicky Kaushal is looking forward to the release of his first film in the horror genre Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship. The trailer of the film has already created quite a buzz amongst the audience for its spooky quotient. The trailer sends a shiver down the spine with its ghostly apparition crawling on walls and scaring the living daylights out of Vicky. 

In the trailer, Vicky is seen entering a dead ship called Sea Bird, which is found stranded at Mumbai's Juhu beach one stormy night. It is a lesser-known fact the Vicky is petrified of the horror genre and is water phobic. The makers have dropped a BTS video where the actor talks about how he overcomes his fears while shooting Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship.

In the video, we see Vicky struggling to film underwater scenes and how he eventually manages to overcome his fear. He is seen perched on high stools underwater but he reveals that real acting starts when these stools were removed as he felt he is going to drown. Interestingly, in the video we see the diving instructor tell Vicky, ‘you will feel you’re going to drown but don’t worry you won’t.’ 

Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship is directed by Bhanu Pratap Singh and produced by Hiroo Johar, Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta and Shashank Khaitan. The film is slated to release on February 21.
