&TV is all set to bring alive the magical, mysterious tales of King Vikram and the fascinating spirit Betaal again, through Vikram Betaal Ki Rahsya Gaatha. The show is slated to go on air onÂ October 16, everyÂ MondayÂ -Â FridayÂ at 8pm.
Produced by Peninsula Pictures, the show aims to bring forward the untold story between Betaal and Bhadrakaal and the repercussions of their starkly opposite ideologies, through illustrations.
The show depicts the tussle between the good and evil by showcasing the quest of the intelligent King Vikramaditya to find the wise ghost Betaal as challenged by the evil Bhadrakaal.

Apart from the grandeur involved in the show, the characters have been mounted on a huge canvas and audiences can expect nothing short of a visual spectacle.â
