India well placed to up its horror game – Gul Panag

Mumbai: Actress Gul Panag, who has been garnering appreciation for her work in the recently released streaming short film The Haunting, believes the horror genre in India is yet to reach its true potential.

The actress plays a psychiatrist in the short film, which also stars Erica Fernandes and Prakriti Mishra. The horror short film revolves around a girl named Moushumi who is possessed by ghosts and is accused of murdering her best friend. The film is said to be based on real events and is directed by Tanveer Bookwala.

Sharing her views on the horror genre, the actress said, “I have two views on the horror-thriller genre, first as an actor and second as an audience. My view as an actor is that we have not done justice to the horror-thriller genre in India. We have done the same kind of horror-thriller genre. While its scope is quite large.

She emphasized the internationalization of Korean and Japanese horror, which has set standards throughout the world. Look what the rest of the world is doing, he said. What are the Koreans doing with their horror genre? The Japanese are ahead. Of course, Hollywood has done incredible horror for a long time.

So, I think the scope to perform in horror, to be a part of films with incredible visual effects is huge. He further added, “Now, as an audience, I personally get scared watching horror movies. If you make great movies, the audience will be scared, which is the main goal of a horror movie. The Haunting is currently available on Amazon Mini TV.
