Mumbai | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Actor Vicky Kaushal, who will be next seen in the movie Bhoot: The Haunted Ship, has revealed that he is extremely scared of ghosts in real life. While sharing about his fear of ghosts, the actor also revealed a near-spooky experience from the sets.

"Once, during the shoot, a ladder was almost falling over me and suddenly stopped when it was just three inches away. I had a feeling that maybe there is someone on the set who is feeling disturbed due to us. So I silently requested, we are making your biopic, please let it happen smoothly. But nothing serious has happened with me as in no spooky experiences," said Vicky.

The 31-year-old actor revealed that he feels scared while watching horror films and never watches them alone.

"I watch horror films very rarely. Maybe once a year I get the feeling that okay now I am grown up and I can watch a horror film. I feel really scared while watching horror films. I have watched a few in English such as Conjuring, Paranormal Activity and Annabelle. I prefer watching horror films with a set of friends, especially the ones who are even more scared than me. That gives me a little courage," he said.

However, despite being so scared of horror films, Vicky revealed that he somehow managed to shoot for one.

"I was okay with shooting a horror film because I knew the moment there would be a cut, I would sit sip tea with the ghost. So, I could manage that," he smiled.

The actor, however, said that he is eager to overcome his fear of ghosts and revealed that he feels jealous of people who don't feel scared to watch horror movies.

"I would love to overcome that fear because I get very jealous of people who say we really enjoy horror films. I wonder don't they feel scared at night? If I see something in the kitchen in a horror film, I would probably see the same thing in my kitchen in real life! And it becomes difficult to sleep alone at night," confessed Vicky.

The actor, who was last seen in Uri: The Surgical Strike, also revealed that he is also scared of water. Kaushal said that he has a phobia of water which has slightly reduced after shooting this film.

"Till before this film, I had a phobia of water which has reduced quite a bit after shooting this. I swam underwater in a 25ft deep swimming pool and I enjoyed it. But the day I can perform a Scooba diving at night, not in a swimming pool but in a sea, only that day I feel I will successfully overcome my fear of water," he said.

Directed by Bhanu Pratap Singh, "Bhoot: The Haunted Ship" hits theatres on February 21. The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Ashutosh Rana in important roles.
