It is not every day that a regular shoot turns out to be that one day you will remember forever! Such was the experience of television actor Khushwant Walia who will be seen in the upcoming episode of &TV’s Laal Ishq. The actor who enjoys essaying roles of the supernatural or horror genre had a recent unusual experience on the sets in Mumbai which left the actor spooked for life.
Shooting an intense scene at a secluded area, the team happened to overhear a few strange noises resembling a hissing sound. At first, the entire crew paid no attention to the noises but the sheer frequency and volume of the noises could not be eventually ignored.
After huddling together for a couple of hours, the crew decided to finally decipher the source of the noise revealing that it was a small snake hidden above the wooden roof. While each and every one present on the set breathe a sigh of relief, the production smartly took the call to change venue in fear that it might invite other dangerous creatures.
Talking about this experience Khushwant Walia said, “I don’t usually get creeped or spooked out easily but when you are constantly shooting for hours together in a horror zone, it is natural to get goose bumps at the slightest drop of a pin. I remember I had to shoot an extremely intense and quiet scene and each time I heard the noise, I could feel the hair on my neck stand. I actually forgot a dialogue when I heard the noise loud and clear. We tried to joke about it and at first felt somebody was pranking us but when the fear became mutual, we eventually decided to face it. Although I am afraid of snakes as well, I was quite relieved that it was nothing beyond a small creature. This has surely been one of the most memorable experiences I have had on a show’s set.”
