Vicky Kaushal: I was never a 'horror-film friendly' actor
Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship will have its digital premiere on Amazon Prime Video on April 22
Earlier this year, Vicky Kaushal tried his hand at the horror genre with Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship. Though not a fan of the genre, the actor took it as a challenge.
"I was never a horror-film friendly actor before doing Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship. I was someone who would step out of the room if a horror movie was on. However, with this film, I was able to overcome my fear," says Vicky.
"With this movie, the endeavour has been to bring to the fans, a true experience of the genre through a genuine horror film which is not just filled with thrills, but which is honestly scary," he adds.
The film tells the story of a young shipping officer, Prithvi, grappling with a personal loss. He takes it upon himself to unravel the mystery of a haunted ship.
It will now have its digital premiere on Amazon Prime Video on April 22.
"I am happy that many more viewers across the globe can now stream the film and enjoy some edge-of-the-seat thrill, from the comfort of their personal devices on Amazon Prime Video," says the actor.
The Bhanu Pratap Singh directorial also features Bhumi Pednekar and Ashutosh Rana.
