Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh played pranks on the sets of their forthcoming film, scaring their crew members with spooky stories
Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh found an ingenious way to indulge in some dose of laughter on the sets of their upcoming film. While on their shoot for Vikramaditya Motwane's next in West Bengal inside an apparently haunted house, the two pulled pranks on crew members by narrating spooky tales to them.
It is learnt that the actors who were shooting in an old haveli near the West Bengal capital, were surprised to see that a part of it remained locked up all the time. The local residents informed them that part of the mansion was haunted for years.
"There were stories about scary sounds coming out from that section of the haveli. And apparently, some or the other harm had befallen people who ventured into that area. So the locals had decided to lock that portion up," explains a source associated with the film.
Needless to say, Ranveer and Sonakshi were intrigued by this piece of news, we're told. "So they tried to do their own investigation whether there was anything really scary about the place or was it just a fictitious story to avoid visitors from creating mischief," says our source, adding that fortunately for the team, no untoward incident occurred.
Nonetheless, the place had gained enough notoriety for the stories given by the locals to ensure that the crew members were constantly watching over their shoulders. "Hearing the spooky stories, the unitwalas would get edgy and were startled by sudden sounds after dark.
So every other morning, Ranveer and Sonakshi would narrate some scary episode saying it had occurred the previous night," reveals our source. "Sometimes, after pack up, when darkness set in, the two actors would try to play pranks on unsuspecting unit members to spook them out."
Vikas Bahl, one of the producers confirms the story saying that at first they thought it was a joke. "But when the locals kept insisting about the spooky tales, we thought it could be true. Fortunately, the crew didn't experience any untoward or scary incident and we managed to complete our shoot without any horror," he maintained.
