Miss India 2008 Parvathy Omanakuttan had a supernatural experience while shooting for her horror film, Pizza, which is produced by Bejoy Nambiar.
Breaking into a shudder, Parvathy recalls her close shave: “The director, Karthik Subbaraj and I were standing in one corner of a pizza parlour during the shoot. Suddenly, I heard someone whispering my name from behind … and that saved me from disaster. I turned around to see who it was and took two steps back in the bargain. At that very moment, a lamp, which was hung on the wall, fell and broke. I freaked out.”
Parvathy insists, “If it wasn’t for the voice I would have got badly hurt.”
However, the incident hasn’t diminished Parvathy’s love for horror films. “Unfortunately, Hindi films do not experiment much with this genre, besides an occasional film like Ram Gopal Verma’s Raat which was technically very good for its time,” she says while confidently adding, “With Pizza we are going to raise the level with 3D and VFX.”
