If you’ve ever met a bride who doesn’t wear red sindoor, red chooda or paayal, chances are she’d be from a village called Kamalpura where terror strikes when a bride decks up in her finery. Next weekend, Zee TV will launch a clutter-breaking weekend fiction show that centres around a ferocious monster that turned his wrath on newly-wed brides.
Having partnered with Zee TV and given viewers successful primetime dramas such as Hum Paanch, Kasamh Se, PavitraRishta, Jodha Akbar and KumKumBhagya over the years, Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms will produce this thriller titled ‘Brahmarakshas-JaagUthaShaitan.’
The story revolves around a young girl from Mumbai named Raina who goes to Kamalpura with her best friend to attend a wedding. On reaching there, Raina and Rishabh lose the one person who was special to both of them in an encounter with the Brahmarakshas. The protagonists decide to get into a contract marriage so that they can bring the Brahmarakshas out who is responsible for the death all the women wearing sindoor, chuda and payal.
Akash Chawla, Zee TV and Zee Studios, Business Head, said, “Brahmarakshas- JaagUthaShaitaan’ is a fantasy thriller aimed at entertaining every member of the family. The existence of demons is well documented in our Vedas. So we are presenting a fictionalised account of a raakshas set against the backdrop of romance and thrills. The show has an element of intrigue and suspense without going into the space of horror. We have had a successful partnership with Ekta over the years and look forward to entertaining audiences with this novel concept.”
Producer Ekta Kapoor said, “After the immense success of KumkumBhagya that continues to sustain its leadership position across channels on weekday primetime, we are happy to collaborate with Zee TV to present another gripping story called ‘Brahmarakshas- JaagUthaShaitaan’. It is a fantasy, an out-and-out entertainer, a thriller with elements of romance, drama and intrigue. The treatment will be very different vis-a-vis a daily soap. As of now, we have selected Krystle D’souza and Aham Sharma as the lead protagonists and the hunt for the title role of Brahmarakshas is still on.”
