Mumbai: Actress Mughda Godse, who is all set to scare audience in her upcoming film ‘Help’, says she was apprehensive to do horror film thinking it would be too early for her.
"I aM apprehensive about doing horror films at this stage as I think that as an actor one must venture late for such kind of films. So, I was wondering whether should I do or not," Mugdha told PTI here.
"Help", a directorial debut of Rajeev Virani, is a supernatural-horror film starring Bobby Deol and Mughda in lead roles. The film is set to release on August 13, making it the first Bollywood horror film to release on Friday the 13th, the day of bad luck.
"It was the script that attracted me...it is fantastic. There was so much scope for the character in the film. I couldn`t say no for the film," the model-turned actress said.
Mugdha, who is just three films old - `Fashion`, `All The Best` and `Jail`, says she loves watching horror films. "I am a fan of horror films and I watch one film every week. I order horror DVDs, turn off the lights and watch it," she said.
About the role, the 24-year-old actress said, "I play the role of Pia, wife of a horror film-maker. We have marital problems and in the midst of the troubled marriage we have to rush Mauritius to visit my ailing father and that`s where the unusual things start happening." When asked whether the fact that horror films have not done well in past in Bollywood, bothers her, Mugdha said, "It bothers me as an industry person if any film does not do well but our film, `Help` will surely be liked by the audience. It is not typical...it has got international appeal."
Mugdha will be next seen in `Will You Marry Me?`, a romantic-comedy starring Rajeev Khandelwal, Shreyas Talpade, Celina Jaitley and Muzamil Ibrahim in lead roles.
