Viacom18’s Hindi entertainment channel Colors is adding a horror series titled Kaun Hai? to its prime-time line-up.
Produced by Contiloe Pictures, the show will premiere on 29 June and subsequently air every Friday to Sunday at 10.30pm (IST).
Kaun Hai will provide a peek into the unknown, with intriguing accounts of paranormal activities, science fiction, fantasy and cases inspired by real-life incidents.
Kaun Hai? will feature popular television actors including Shallen Bhanot, Pankhuri Awasthi, and Neeta Shetty.
“Horror as a category is very popular. Through Kaun Hai? we are going back to the basics and reviving the genre to make our entertainment catalogue robust. The idea is to strengthen the 10.30pm time band with crime and horror which will offer variety entertainment to our viewers,” said Colors programming head Manisha Sharma.
The show’s writer Arshad Syed (Student of the Year 2) added: “Horror is a genre that needs a lot of precision in terms of screenplay synced with visuals. The entire team has worked hard to bring to life stories that are relatable and scary at the same time. Writing for television is challenging but exciting and I’m sure that our audience will be stunned by every story”.
The show was filmed at a variety of locations across India, including Kashmir, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Calcutta, and Madhya Pradesh.
“It has all the spine-chilling moments to keep the audiences glued and spooked,” said Abhimanyu Singh, CEO, Contiloe Pictures.
The production house last partnered Colors to create Chakravartin Ashok Samrat.
