She is one of the seven youngsters who explore an abandoned, haunted hotel just for the fun of it, and end up amid all the eerie, spine-chilling and paranormal occurrences that are enough to scare the living daylights out of them. And, as she says, also the most scared and affected, in both reel and real life.
A part of the cast of the recent Bollywood release Horror Story, actress Nandini Vaid is quite clear in her head that she will not do a similar horror flick anytime soon. “The experience of shooting this one film was overwhelming,” she says.
In Ludhiana recently to visit the recently launched Lemon Grass nightclub at Kelong, the Delhi girl shared that the bone-chilling moments on the silver screen weren’t too far from those during the shooting.
“While this film is about an abandoned hotel, the cast too shot in a hotel that had been lying vacant for 10 years. Vikram (Bhatt, producer-writer) insisted we shoot at this place called Hotel Tulip. It was dirty, dingy and lacked ventilation. The lifts didn’t work and, sometimes, even the doors didn’t open,” she smiled.
Her take on the horror genre? “It’s just entertainment,” she puts, but not without adding how she herself isn’t a fan.
“I get scared very easily,” she explains.
The former Miss India participant is now looking forward to a romantic film.
