Vicky Kaushal finds Horror role more challenging than Comedy

The film is being flagged by Bhanu Pratap Singh which revolves around a deserted ship and supernatural occurrences revolving the ship. It has been around a month now that Vicky and Bhumi are shooting for the same and Vicky has surfaced that working in horror movies is a challenging job.

“I always considered comedy to be the most difficult genre. It’s not easy to make people laugh – you need to get the timing right, else you’ll miss the bus. But now that I am shooting for a horror film, I realize how difficult the genre is. It’s tougher than comedy. There are times when I am simply reacting to the camera because the ghost is obviously not present. In such a case, emoting becomes difficult,” says the versatile actor.

Speaking on an online show, Vicky says that the background sound plays an pivotal role in horror movies, “I often ask the director about the kind of background music that will be used in a particular sequence, and design my reaction according to it. Usually, I don’t check the monitor after giving a shot. However, in this film, I keep going back to the monitor to see whether my reactions have been appropriate.”

After Vicky finishes his shoot for this film he will be shooting for his next with Karaj Johar for Takth. The Actor is really experimenting with a wide variety of films and says “It’s good to get things a little complicated as that will help me grow as an actor.”
