Where did you watch this movie?

Embedded with dark thrills and terror, this horror story interweaves six stories into one film. Five children get lost in the middle of a forest until they find a haunted house. Inside, there is an old woman who agrees to tell them six scary stories, and they will all compete on who is able to sit through all six stories without getting scared. 1. Additional Story – Uncredited: A movie buff returns home after watching a horror movie, and encounters strange sounds and paranormal activity. 2. Imaginary Ghost: This is the first scary tale narrated by the old woman, and revolves around a professor, Sunil Khanna (Amitabh Bachchan), who is giving tuition to one of his Biotechnology student Altaaf (Riteish Deshmukh) at home. Does the professor have a lookalike ghost with him? 3. Spirits Do Come: a photographer, Kunal (Arjun Rampal), who confronts a strange house when his car breaks down. There, Varsha (Bipasha Basu) invites him in and claims she has been lonely for the past few years since her husband Rahul died. He tries to make a phone call but is confronted by Rahul. He gets scared and says that Varsha opened the door, but gets astonished on listening that Varsha is the one who had died 2 years ago, and not Rahul (Makrand Deshpande). What else does Kunal encounter in this strange setting? 4. Accidents Are Never Predicted: When a family meets with an insurance salesman, who predicts that accidents can never be predicted, and they should buy some insurance, they are angered. What are the strange events that follow? 5. Ghostly Audition: When a film director, Karan Chopra (Anil Kapoor), decides to make a horror film. On the way to the sets, he gives a lift to a beautiful young woman, Riya (Mallika Sherawat), who pretends to be a ghost. Will she succeed in impressing the director enough to choose her for his movie? 6. A Bride's Revenge: Ajay (Randeep Hooda) is a young man driving on the road. He finds a young woman standing on the highway. When he approaches her, he becomes frozen after seeing her face. Who or what is the woman? What will happen to Ajay after his encounter with her? The Ending: After all of the stories are over, one boy, Ashu, claims that he is still not scared. The old lady smirks as the lights of the house suddenly turn off. The stunned boy looks around him. The lights turn back on immediately and he sees that he is the only one in the room: as if no one was ever there. The lights go off and turn back on again, this time to reveal his friends, all of whom are now ghosts, giving him eerie smiles. The old woman appears back on her chair, giving him a witch's smile. How will the boy escape? What will happen to the other children, and how will events unfold?
