Sameer Soni, last seen in Colors's schmaltzy 'Parichay Nayee Zindagi Kay Sapno Ka', is back on television as a ghost buster. He believes that supernatural elements do exist.

In the supernatural thriller 'Khauff Begins... Ringa Ringa Roses', which went on air Life OK channel this week, marks Sameer's first foray into fearsomeness.

And he says it's to do with the character rather than the genre.

"This is the most intense multi-layered character I've ever played. To me, the challenge is to convince viewers that this character of a ghost buster actually exists," said Samir.

The actor, who has also dabbled in big-screen acting with 'China Gate' and 'Baghban', admits he had never encountered a ghost in real life.

"But stories about the supernatural have been around for centuries in all parts of the world. I am sure ghosts exist, although I haven't encountered any," said the actor.

For someone who has been around on television to see myriad changes, Sameer is nonchalant about the changes.

"Change is inevitable in life. As the audience adopts changes of lifestyle and morals, television too must incorporate the changing mores and sensibilities," he said.

"The influence of Western culture on our cinema and television is undeniable. But we Indians love a good story with plenty of drama. Nothing can change that," said the actor who is active on the small screen since 'A Mouthful of Sky' days.

Sameer feels television is an important medium of social change.

"We are going through a period of tremendous media influence in every walk of life. Television plays a major role in shaping the coming generations," he said.

Unearthly shooting hours on television do not deter Sameer from spending time with his baby-daughter Ahana.

"I admit I am not able to spend as much time with her as I'd like to. She's 11 months old. And she has her own schedule. I find it hard to co-ordinate my timings with hers. But it's a delight to wake up to her smiling face."

More than his own joy at parenthood, it is wife and former actress Neelam's happiness that makes Sameer happy.

"I've never seen Neelam happier since I've known her. And to me that complete feeling of a happy family means everything. Our daughter is named Ahana. It means the first ray of the sun. And she has indeed brought sunshine into our lives," he said.

    Its good to hear anything from SS but he saying that he is sure that Ghost exists is truly shocking. This is the last thing we want in this superstitious country.
