Janhvi Kapoor, Gulshan Devaiah, Mrunal Thakur and others share their sinister and spooky instances from working on Netflix’s original ‘Ghost Stories’


After their super successful anthology Lust Stories that bagged an Emmy nomination, the directors including Zoya Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap, Dibakar Banerjee and Karan Johar reunite for this quartet of thrillers titled Ghost Stories. The Netflix original film stars Janhvi Kapoor, Mrunal Thakur, Sukany Goel, Sobhita Dhulipala, Gulshan Devaiah, Vijay Varma, Avinash Tiwary, Raghubir Yadav and Pavail Gulati. 

Janhvi, Gulshan, Mrunal, Sobhita and Vijay shared some scary and spooky incidents from the sets of the film today. Their statements had some really sinister incidences that were shared by Netflix’s official Instagram page. Although nothing spooky happened with Janhvi during the shoot of her part in Ghost Stories but she shared, “part from being a classic ghost story, the script resonated with me on a very deep level. The horror is more emotional and human than anything external. Something that spooked me out was that after we wrapped the shoot, about 10 of us fell really, really sick.”

Mrunal had another incident to share on how her real-life vs reel life paranormal experiences spooked her. She said, “While shooting the wedding night scene, the cameraman looked through the camera and said, 'I told you guys, I don't want that white light from the window’ but there was no one standing near the window.” 

However, Gulshan had a real-life incident to share about having seen a woman dressed in a white sari at night on the road. He said, “Nothing spooky happened on set, but I once saw a woman dressed in a white saree walking on a main road in Delhi in the middle of the night. It was... odd.” 

Meanwhile, Sobhita had a practical way of looking at things and shared what she feels are the perks of being a ghost. She said, “I haven’t had any paranormal experiences, but if I were a ghost--not that human guilt isn’t haunting enough--I would enjoy the perks. I wouldn’t need a visa, and wouldn’t have to pay bills!”

Vijay said, “What got me excited about Ghost Stories was that I got to work with Zoya Akhtar again. The set was great, but we didn’t really get the time to notice scary occurrences... maybe that was scary? But when I was in 10th, my friend’s sister got ‘possessed’. Later I watched Bhool Bhulaiya, and realised that it could be psychological.”

The Netflix original will begin streaming on the platform starting January 1, 2020.
