Ram Gopal Varma’s scariest movie: ‘Phoonk’
After releasing ‘Sarkar Raj’ director Ram Gopal Varma is all set with his next scary movie ‘Phoonk’. This movie is based on the story of black magic! This will be his next horror film after ‘Bhoot’. But the director himself does not believe in God and any dark forces. "I have experienced certain things or heard a first-hand account of some other people's experiences which in the least can be said to be hair-raising and inexplicable. Being an atheist I would like to believe that there is a rational and scientific explanation to each and every one of these occurrences. But till I don't get an understanding of the same, I am forced to presume that they are supernatural happenings" said Mr. Varma.
Ram Gopal Varma is going to introduce a known Kannada actor Sudeep in ‘Phoonk’. The other castings are Amruta Khanvilkar, Ahsaas Channa, Shrey Bawa, Jyothi SubhasAshwini Kalsekar, Anu Ansari and Zakir Hussain. “Phoonk is the story of a confirmed atheist whose belief systems are shaken up when his loved ones are subjected to unspeakable horrors by forces whose very existence his rational mind refuses to accept. It is also the story of a fanatical devotee who is forced to turn her back on God in the face of traumatic experiences" Ram Gopal Varma said. He added "Don't say I didn't warn you as it is also a very scary film, but the fear element is not just on the surface level like for instance in a film like Bhoot. It seeps into you and plagues your entire belief system thereby making you highly vulnerable. It will also put you into an emotional state wherein you would start fearing the most inane objects which you would normally take for granted in the daily course of life."
The releasing date of ‘Phoonk’ has been settled on 22nd August 2008. So get ready for some chilling experience as Bollywood now brings you black magic along with other entertainments!!
