Director Ram Gopal Varma seems to have a lot of faith in Phoonk 2, to the extent that's he's ready to hand out a cash prize of Rs 5 lakhs to anyone brave enough to watch his latest.
The contest claims to award the winner if he/she dares to watch the movie all alone in a cinema hall. Phoonk makers claim the last man who tried watching the first movie didn't even last 30 minutes.
The challenge, however, ran into scandal when many claimed the first wasn't scary at all, with some even alleging the scare contest was rigged.
But the team behind Phoonk 2 refuses to back down, and have taken the second version of the challenge to a whole new level.
"For Phoonk 2, we are adopting a very scientific method. The contestant will be fitted with an ECG machine while Phoonk 2 plays. The machine will monitor his heartbeat and pulse rate and this will be shown live on a screen outside the theatre to both the media and all concerned," revealed a press release.
