The only solace is that I am not playing the ghost in any of these films," Gayathri laughs, adding, "My mother worries a lot. She thinks that I am being haunted by evil spirits, but at the end of the day, I guess she understands that it's all part of the game."
The coincidences don't seem to end with the films, and she has had her share of paranormal experiences. "While shooting in Langkawi (Malayasia) last month, the entire cast was put up in the same hotel. We had no clue that it was the most haunted place in the island. My friends freaked out when they heard voices of kids talking aloud in the middle of the night and chatter in the corridors.
It's the closest thing I have come across to witnessing the presence of a ghost," she recalls. As much as she likes being part of horror films, Gayathri confesses, "Horror comedies are fun, but when you are expected to scream at the top of your voice and run, it drains you emotionally. It'll be nice if I take a break from this genre and do something else," she says.
