Like horror films? Here’s how you can win some cash


Way back when I was in college, a friend challenged me to watch “The Exorcist” all alone at home, after midnight, in exchange for a thousand rupees.

Of course, being the coward that I am (when it comes to horror films), I declined the offer. Being richer by one thousand rupees wasn’t worth putting myself through such an ordeal.

Yes, that’s the amount producers of the upcoming horror flick “Phoonk” are offering viewers if they can watch the film all alone in a theatre.
