‘I Believe In Spirits'
GLOBAL MOVIE MAGAZINE|NOVEMBER 2019
‘If you want to see sex, just go watch porn. You don’t need to watch a film or a Web series for that.’

Sanaya Irani is all set to scare us in her latest film Ghost, directed by Vikram Bhatt.

The actress, who believes in spirits, claims it’s quite taxing making a film in the horror genre.

For starters, you have to fun fast!

And then, the most important thing:

“I don’t have anything to get scared of but I have to act accordingly, so that the audience feels my fear,” Sanaya tells Contributor Divya Solgama.

How do you rate your journey so far?

It has been quite organic.

I just wanted to act when I entered the industry.

I love the process of acting.

I am glad that fame and popularity did not divert my route because technically, if I wanted to do films, I would have done that five or eight years ago.

Though I joined the film industry very late, it was not a conscious move.

I was following good work.

It’s just that I don’t want to do television with the kind of offers I am getting now.

Fortunately, I was offered a Web series called Zindabad by Vikram Bhatt.

When he liked my work in that, he offered me Ghost.

Ghost is a horror movie. How taxing was it?

It was indeed taxing.

Physically, because you have run fast!
