A lot us don’t believe in the other-worldly presence but have you ever felt that there’s somebody, some kind of being, omnipresent in the room while you’re half-asleep or simply doing your daily chores?
For people who have experienced something supernatural, that instance can bring a lot of reactions including the curiosity to find what the world of the spirits looks like.
It is said that when you shoot for a horror/supernatural film involving ghosts, witches, you create a negative energy that attracts spirits and results in experiencing paranormal activities. It is also said that when people shoot for a horror film, they offend the spirits and the ghosts.
We don’t know how much it is true. People have always questioned the presence of spirits and ghosts, as well. However, some experiences send chills down the spine, and you refuse to believe that it was just a coincidence.
Here is a list of Bollywood celebrities who have had supernatural encounters in real life.
1. Varun Dhawan was haunted by the ghost of American singer-actor Frank Sinatra.
While shooting for ABCD 2, Varun Dhawan was staying in a hotel, which was legendary singer Frank Sinatra’s favourite. He was put up in a suite that was said to be haunted by the ghost of the actor-singer.
After a long, tiring day of shoot, when Varun went back to his room to sleep, he heard some strange sounds and the door creaked open on its own.
“The suite was definitely haunted because at night I would hear someone singing and the doors would just fling open,” Varun had shared to Mid-day.
2. Nawazuddin Siddiqui experienced eerie incidents on the sets of Aatma

4. Emraan Hashmi heard someone screaming at a hotel room while he was vacationing

“We shifted out of that hotel first thing in the morning to a hotel where there were other guests too apart from us,” he said.
