It looks like Saif Ali Khan has had a pretty colourful like and we are not just talking about his movies and relationships. Lately, the Hum Tum actor revealed that he has had an experience with LSD and that, too, at the young age of 22. However, he did add that it was but a solitary encounter, and, in fact, had helped him overcome his fear of the dark. The startling revelations were made on Neha Dhupia's on her podcast, No Filter Neha.
Opening up on his experience with LSD and moving past his paranoia of darkness, Saif Ali Khan said, “I actually had an experience with LSD once when I was 22 and I realised that I'm not scared of the dark anymore. I used to be. It could have gone either way apparently. It is dangerous maybe I could have developed a phobia of the dark, you know. That could have happened as well. But this is what happened. And I realised with all clarity that there is nothing in the dark except darkness. And I’ve never been scared since. Except now I think it’s worn off. It’s an art form to frighten someone anyway but like a subtle shiver you get and its gotta be short obviously, and it’s gotta be scary and it’s gotta be well written and descriptive.”
“The great writers sometimes weigh-in and kind of write a ghost story and it’s like singing summertime, you know where all the singers have done it because it’s a song with range where you can show-off your skills. Similarly, Charles Dickens, Emily Edwards and various people, everyone’s written a ghost story and that’s the time you can see their class. The Oxford book of ghost stories has a great collection that starts from the first ghost story written to one of the most recent ones, they’re just really good and lovely to read at night before going to sleep,” added the National-Award-winning actor.
