Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], February 1 (ANI): Actors Bipasha Basu and Dino Morea are celebrating 20 years of the release of their film 'Raaz' on Tuesday.
In the film, Bipasha played the central character Sanjana Dhanraj, a woman who is haunted by the spirit of her husband's lover. The Vikram Bhatt directorial became the second highest-grossing film of 2002.
As the film completes twenty years of release, Bipasha walked down memory lane and shared some fun and interesting anecdotes about her 'Raaz' days.
Talking about some fun pranks director Vikram Bhatt played on her to get an on-camera reaction, she said, "Vikram had this huge gong that he would unexpectedly ring to get the right reaction out of me. The first time he used the gong, I was absolutely caught unaware while walking in pin-drop silence and it was so scary that I shook and screamed loudly! I thought my soul left my body! After that, the gong became my biggest villain! He would use that gong at any point to get a crazy reaction out of me!"

Speaking about how the film's cast and crew would add more spookiness to the shoot, she said, "In the night, everyone, including Saroj Khan, Ashutosh Rana and Vikram Bhatt, would narrate the scariest ghost stories that they have experienced. It was quite crazy and made my job of getting scared a little easier. I definitely had my share of spooks during the filming of Raaz!"
Actor Dino Morea took to his Instagram handle to celebrate two decades of the film's release.
He wrote, "20 years of #Raaz. I am so grateful to everyone involved in making this happen for me. Mukesh Ji, Bhatt Saab, Vikram and my lovely Co-stars Bipasha, Malini, Ashutosh Rana and many others.
