About HELP and his character Bobbysaid, "the film has been beautifully shot and I must say it's one the finest horror films that the audience will see. It's chilling, gruesome and the kind of horror which gives you Goosebumps. HELP will take the horror genre in India to another level. My character in the film is extremely well defined and I am sure people will like the new Bobby in the film."
HELP is a supernatural horror that draws upon the story of a malevolent spirit that refuses to leave the human world. Protagonist Vic (Bobby Deol) is a successful horror film director in Bollywood and is married to Pia (Mugdha Godse). Pia and Vic are having marital problems and in the midst of their troubled marriage, they have to rush to Mauritus to visit Pia's ailing father. Little do they know that there's something ancient and dark that remains still, hidden and silent in the old house where Pia grew up. It can only wait, having been concealed in the shadows for years and all it wants to do is to strike again! As the darkness spreads, things start to get worse and the spirit tries to annihilate everything. Now Vic and Pia must race against time to find out the secret which will save their lives. Will their love gather the strength to survive the malevolent spirit or will they witness the most horrifying truths of their lives in a doomed attempt to save everything and everyone that means anything to both of them.
Mugdha is very excited about the upcoming release and when we caught up with her she couldn't but gush enthusiastically, "I have done glamorous roles as well as de-glam roles in the past but with HELP you will see me in a role which is much more acting oriented. It is the role of a lifetime and I had to prepare really hard to inhabit the skin of the character I was to play. My character had to be really authentic and I must admit that it was a spooky experience too as the makeup was such that it gave me the jitters. The prosthetic makeup for me and the other characters in the film has been done by Vikram Gaikwad, who is reknowned for his makeup for films like 3 IDIOTS, KAMINEY, ISHQIYA, DELHI 6, etc. I am hoping that once the audience has watched HELP they will agree that it is as authentic as can be and see that we have not comprised an iota when it comes to quality. So I am waiting for the release of our film and hope that we are successful in scaring the audience out of their wits."
