Do you believe in supernatural?
I definitely do believe in it.
Craziest horror story you have ever heard as a kid? Have you ever had a brush with uncanny?
I have experienced it when I was a kid. We had a huge playground. Once we were playing 'ghar-ghar' where we played characters like husband-wife and kids. My partner was standing right under the tree. When I came back, I saw her sitting under the tree with her hair covering her face. She was very quiet when I went to her. She wasn't replying when I tried to talk to her and she was behaving weird. I tried to raise her face to talk properly. When she looked up her eyes were scary and suddenly she slapped me hard across the face. I had five fingers printed on my cheek and I fainted! She slapped me that hard. By the time I got my senses, I saw my family, her family and some other people holding her. She was screaming in a voice unlike her usual and was trying to get to other boys standing there. Then I heard they summoned someone to cure her. By God's grace she is perfectly alright now. That never happened again in our lives. So if I believe in God, I have to believe in this. I have seen miracles in my life too. I recognize supernatural and God both.
What has scared you the most?
There was a show called 'Aahat' and they had a scary signature sound which used to come before the show starts. I would rush to my room, whenever I used to hear that.
Favorite horror movie?
Annabelle and Paranormal activity.
We had to live at our college for a few days for our youth festival. Our college was near a cemetery. One day we challenged each other to go there in the night. I was extremely afraid but I did it.
