Content on television has witnessed a paradigm shift in the current decade. The never-ending and done-to-death saas-bahu daily soaps are no longer a hot favourite. The viewers are taking equal, if not more, interest in shows with other themes namely supernatural thrillers, sitcom, horror, reality, etc. The success of serials like Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain, Manmohini, Daayan, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, Dance India Dance is proof that there is, in fact, a huge audience for such type of content. Catering to one such market, Zee TV is all set to launch a new show – Aghori.
Starring Gaurav Chopraa, Parag Tyagi and Agnifera actress Simaran Kaur, it is “a love story you haven’t seen,” as Gaurav describes it. Parag and Gaurav play the roles of aghoris on the show. Simaran, going by the first look, plays Gaurav’s love interest. The makers dropped the teaser of Aghori recently and it gives a sneak peek into the undiscovered world of aghoris. The video says that the show intends to unravel the mysteries revolving around aghoris, and uncover the lesser-known truth about their universe. Albeit the date and time when the show goes on air hasn’t been revealed, all we can say is the countdown has begun!
Talking about his role, Gaurav told a leading daily, “For the past two-and-a-half years, I was focussing on the digital platform as I wanted to experiment with different roles. Then came this offer, which was hard to refuse. Ek Shakti… Ek Aghori’s concept is unheard of. The intrigue and eccentricity surrounding the show along with the different layers of the character drew me to it.”
For those not in the know, Gaurav has performances in Doli Armaano Ki, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, Piya Ka Ghar, and Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyann to his credit. The handsome hunk is making a comeback to the small screen with Aghori. Invoking a sense of deceit and mystery, Ek Shakti…Ek Aghori shall also involve a romantic angle.
