Colors will launch a new supernatural drama, ‘Tantra’, an intriguing tale of incantation, mysticism and supernatural elements wrapped in a family drama. The show produced by Swastik Productions will start airing from December 3, every Monday to Friday, at 11p.m.
By telling the tale of a family who has fallen prey to the clutches of incantation, the show explores the world of black magic and its evil effects. Actor Manish Goel, Juhi Parmar, who will be seen as Prithvi and Sumati Khanna, will mark their comeback in the supernatural thriller. Sargun Kaur is the female protagonist while Gautam Vig plays her love interest.
Nina Elavia Jaipuria, Head, Hindi and Kids TV Network, Viacom18, said, "With Tantra, we continue to explore another interesting and intriguing genre that is sure to provide viewers with an edge of the seat experience.”
“Whether it’s the costumes, the VFX, the props or the sets, the viewers have always devoured the mysterious world of uncanny tales. The antagonist in our show is a house that has a will of its own,” said Manisha Sharma, Chief Content Officer, Hindi Mass Entertainment, Viacom18, who feels that Indian audiences have always been fascinated by supernatural stories.
Siddharth Kumar Tewary, Writer, Producer and Creator of Tantra, Swastik Productions, said, "Tantra is a progressive show that truly shows that doing black magic isn’t good and the consequences can be dire. It is Swastiks’s first foothold into the supernatural genre in which we are bringing to our viewers a house that shall truly ‘live’, a family that shall fight the darkness that comes with black magic.”
Sargun Kaur, talking about her character said, “Niyati’ is a practical young woman who does not believe in superstitions. She must come to terms that her family is inflicted by the evils of tantra and is the only person who can truly save her family from its wrath.”
Gautam Vig, said, “Akshat is undyingly devoted to his lady love. While Niyati’s family relies on her to safeguard their lives, it is Akshat who is Niyati’s pillar of strength.”
Juhi Parmar said that her role as Sumati is of a god-loving woman and a hands-on mother.
Manish Goel, who plays the family patriarch said, “My role as Prithvi Khanna is an atheist but I am a firm believer of god in real life. The show has been conceptualised well and has some beautiful characterisations.”
