Truly wild stories

PETRIFIED: A scene from Agyaat.

It was not just the script and direction of  Agyaat that was sending chills down the spines of all the actors and unit members of the Ram Gopal Varma movie. They even had to make do with getting spooked in real life. The film has been shot in the Sigiriya jungles of Sri Lanka and the unit was put up at a hotel near the jungle itself. Priyanka Kothari had many encounters with the animals. Her room was nothing short of being a mini zoo.

She says, “At any time you could expect a monkey staring at you from the balcony, ready to snatch your breakfast. Or there would be a snake passing by on the balcony rod. One morning when I woke up, I saw six lizards crawling on the ceiling!" When she ran to the reception to ask for a better room, the receptionist told her that she was given the best room in the hotel. Well, hopefully now, Priyanka would probably not be scared of lizards and other reptiles.
