Viu to launch musical drama ‘Spotlight 2’ on 26 Jan
MUMBAI: Viu, the premium video-on-demand platform by PCCW-owned Vuclip, is set to launch the season 2 of its original series ‘Spotlight’. The 13-episode series can be binged watched from 26 January.
Viu has again collaborated with acclaimed writer and director Vikram Bhatt and the theme continues to focus on bringing to screen the realities of people from the glamour world.
The series directed by Siddhant Sachdeva features popular television actor Karan V Grover along with two former Miss Indias, Aditi Arya and Ruhi Singh, who will make their web debut with Spotlight 2.
The series will feature more than seven originally composed tracks brought to life by soulful musicians Harish Sanganay, and Ankit Shah.
Based on the buzzing music industry in Mumbai, Spotlight 2 is the story of a talented and flamboyant musician, Vicky, who through his hard work and exceptional voice becomes a very big success in the music industry. This quick rise also makes him arrogant and results in drug addiction and disrespect for his fans. The story is the journey of how Vicky hits rock bottom and then begins to fight his inner demons to regain his life, his career and his fans.
Speaking on the launch of Spotlight franchise, Viu India head of programming Manasi Sapre said, “At Viu, we focus on creating compelling content and a viewing experience that captivates our audience and is relatable at the same time. With the Spotlight franchise, we continue our successful association with Vikram Bhatt that we started a year ago with Gehraiyaan and Spotlight 1. We are excited to launch the Spotlight 2 and in the upcoming months, you will see a lot more exciting original shows from Viu.”
