The filmmaker recalled that they were flying to Chennai on the same flight and he happened to sit next to Shiamak. RGV said, “The plane took off and then, in broad daylight, in the air, he (Shiamak) suddenly asked me, 'Your father passed away?' So, it was a normal question to ask, but it was true… 15 days before this meeting, my father had passed away. So I told him yes. Now, he was in the window seat, and I was in the aisle. Then he looked at me for a while, and said, 'He is here with us.' I was completely shocked! And he is a choreographer, I expect such questions from a man, which is weird.”

The filmmaker further added, “I told him ‘Shyamak I don’t believe in this thing’. Then he said that he (RGV’s father) also never believed in this and he is very worried about you (RGV).’ How does he know that my father died? That he was an atheist? I had a mix of helplessness, anger, fear. I was very disturbed by that conversation. I suddenly got up and went back to my seat. And I started thinking, ‘How can he know?’ Now, there are possibilities. Either his father is dead or not, an atheist or not, so the possibilities are not so great that you can’t try your luck on it. I also thought that I am a famous person and since we both are from the industry, he might have heard this and was playing a googly!”

Ram Gopal Varma has given Bollywood many memorable horror films. From Revathi-starrer Raat (1992), which is still considered one of Bollywood's best horror films, to Ajay Devgn and Urmila Matondkar's Bhoot (2003). His other notable films in the genre include Phoonk (2008).
