Her last outing, 5 Weddings, may have sunk without a trace, but Nargis Fakhri is looking forward to her next, Amavas.

The Bhushan Patel-directed venture sees her exploring the horror genre for the first time. Talking to mid-day, the actor reveals how Patel, in a bid to be authentic to the script, shot a pivotal sequence at Castle Goring in Sussex, which according to legend is haunted.

“I get goosebumps even at the thought of that castle,” begins Fakhri, who is paired with actor Sachiin Joshi in the January release. Recounting the last schedule, she says, “The cast wasn’t informed that the place was haunted.

During the shoot, weird things would keep happening – there were several instances when the lights would switch on and off on their own. We thought it was a technical glitch. It was only when we had almost finished shooting that Bhushan revealed that the place is believed to be haunted.”
