Indian video streaming service ZEE5 has introduced Bhoot Purva, an original comedy about the misadventures of a boy and his ghostly friend.

Bhoot Purva 7 May 2019Starring Omkar Kapoor, Zoa Morani, Rishab Chadha, Manu Rishi Chadha, Jayati Bhatia, and Baba Sehgal, the 10-episode series is directed by Zeishan Quadri.

Bhoot Purva is the story of a friendly ghost who has returned to fulfill a wish. With a crazy Yamraj (Baba Sehgal) for company, can Purva help Araav accomplish his goal?

“Since inception, we have a range of content available on the platform not just across languages but also genres. Our shows Auto Shankar, High Priestess, Sex, Drugs & Theatre, Abhay, The Sholay Girl to name a few, have been curated carefully to suit consumer needs. Bhoot Purva, a light-hearted comedy, is a step in that direction. It is a genre enjoyed across age-groups and is perfectly timed with the summer break for audiences to binge-watch,” said Manish Aggarwal, business head, ZEE5 India.

Director Zeishan Quadri added: “Bhoot Purva is a unique story of two friends from different worlds who help each other with their problems. Omkar Kapoor, Rishab and Zoa have done complete justice to their parts and with the experience of Baba Sehgal and the modern twist to his character of Yamraj, Bhoot Purva will undoubtedly be the mass entertainer of the season. We are glad to be presenting it on ZEE5 and hope that people across the world will enjoy this unusual bond of friendship.”

Bollywood actor Omkar Kapoor said he agreed to act in the series “almost immediately” after reading the script.

“There was roaring laughter throughout our reading sessions and we thoroughly enjoyed shooting the series. I am now looking forward to the audiences watching the show on ZEE5 and I hope they enjoy it as much as we enjoyed putting it together,” said Kapoor.
