Star Plus to launch fantasy thriller ‘Qayamat Ki Raat’ on 23 June
MUMBAI: Star Plus will launch Balaji Telefilms produced fantasy thriller ‘Qayamat Ki Raat’ on 23 June airing every Saturday and Sunday at 7 pm. As a complete family entertainer, the show unfolds the story of a young couple who are tested when faced with the power of the tantrik’s curse.
Unveiling the journey of Thakur and Shekhawat families in the backdrop of the state of UP, the show will boast of a stellar cast including Dipika Kakar, Abhinav Kohli, Papia Sengupta, Sumit Bharadwaj among others. This show will also mark the comeback of veteran actor Apara Mehta on StarPlus after more than a decade.
Introducing television’s most unnerving villain, the Tantrik-turned-Rakshas, played by Nirbhay Wadhwa, stands out as a never seen before evil – a demon who lusts for power and immortality and is out to gain vengeance for his death and become invincible on an eventful night. Once his Sar, Haath and Dhad unite the viewers will be in for a bloodcurdling journey with the eeriest monster coming alive on ‘Qayamat Ki Raat’ on Indian television.
The unique pairing of popular actors Karishma Tanna and Vivek Dahiya who play the role of Gauri and Rajvardhan will be seen on screen for the first time delighting fans with the good looking couple.
Talking about the show, Balaji Telefilms Joint MD Ekta Kapoor said, “Qayamat Ki Raat is a show which presents the story of spine-chilling TANTRIK on television. It’s a fresh story about human emotions being tested when faced with supernatural forces. The unexplored folklore of ‘Tantrik Kabhi Martein Nahin’ becomes the terrifying nightmare of the lead couple in this story. The Tantrik‘s look itself has been worked upon for months with detailed prosthetics unlike anything else seen on television. The story will keep viewers hooked with a never seen before horrific villain and the unique lead pairing of Karishma Tanna and Vivek Dahiya. I am really looking forward to this exciting partnership with StarPlus to present this gripping story.”
A Star Plus spokesperson said, “Experimenting with new concepts has always excited our team at StarPlus. This show is a fantasy thriller set in today’s times and the story is woven around the lives of young adults who will face their worst fears. The show has romance, family drama and thrill at the heart of the fantastical context. We wanted to introduce this genre at a fresh timeslot to encourage a new viewing opportunity for the consumers seeking exciting content.”
