In a ground-breaking way to promote his future production venture, web-series Betaal, superstar Shah Rukh Khan on Saturday announced a contest for budding filmmakers to shoot a scary movie indoors, keeping in mind the nationwide lockdown.

Since we've all got a bit of time on our hands in quarantine, thought I can get us all to work a bit... in a fun, creative and... spooky way! #SpookSRK, Shah Rukh wrote on Twitter. He further added, since we all have a bit of time on our hands and have binged a lot of shows and films, how about we channel the inner filmmaking ghost in us to make scary indoor film with an element of horror to it.

Shah Rukh laid down a few rules to be followed while accepting this challenge, which include - choose any camera available, a prop that can be used spookily but has to be readily available at home and it can be a solo project or you can choose multiple people provided you follow the social distancing guidelines. The last day to send in the entries is May 18 and it will be judged by Viineet, Aahana, director Patrick Graham and producer Gaurav Verma.

The three winners will get to be on a video call with Shah Rukh and the Betaal team. The zombie-horror series starring Viineet Kumar, Aahana Kumra and Suchitra Pillai in the lead, will start streaming on Netflix on May 24.
