Revenge is beneath us. But, accidents? They happen all the time! Upcoming ZEE5 original Poison is one such story revolving around the life of a cop, his family and a stranger who enters their lives for a purpose. Hatred, sex, violence, blood splashes, and gruesome action dominate the narrative of this web series.

So much so that the rage of revenge can be felt beyond the screens, 19 April 2019 onwards on ZEE5.  Ahead of its release, we give you five reasons why you should definitely add to your must-watch list! “Everybody loves a good revenge story!” and if you are one of them, well, here’s your first reason to watch Poison.

2. Arbaaz Khan as the baddie

Admit it, we loved to hate Arbaaz Khan as Makhanchand Pandey aka Makkhi in the Dabangg series. Of course, not when he warmed up to Chulbul Pandey, but every time he crossed him! Guess you might be pleased to see Arbaaz in a grey character again in Poison.

He plays a rich businessman in the series, who is based in Goa. Recently, Arbaaz turned host for Kareena Kapoor Khan, Varun Dhawan, and others on a chat show called Pinch.

3. Riya Sen, Freddy Daruwala and Tanuj Virwani

Also starring in Poison are Riya Sen, Freddy Daruwala and Tanuj Virwani. Tanuj plays Ranveer while Freddy plays a cop in the digital project. The latter has received appreciation for his power-packed performances in action thrillers like Holiday, Commando 2, Race 3 etc.

It remains to be seen what Riya will be playing in Poison. However, the Style actress is an assured entertainer!

4. Dialogues

The teaser opens with a background voiceover that goes as, “Revenge, badla, wo poison hai jo kisi ke andar chadhta toh badi tezi se hai, lekin utarte utarte jaan bhi le leta hai.” This one line is enough for us to establish that Poison will be packed with hard-hitting dialogues.

Writer Shiraz Ahmed known for writing the screenplay of blockbuster movies like Race 3 (2018), Aitraaz (2004), Wanted (2009) amongst others has contributed to Poison too.

5. Locales of Goa
