One of the most popular OTT services for the Indian audience is the market-leading streaming juggernaut Amazon Prime Video, which consistently offers something fresh and exciting to its audience.
The streamer has now announced over 40 new titles of its upcoming projects, including original web series, original movies, and co-productions in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu that are planned to be launched over the next 24 months, at its first-ever Prime Video Presents India event in Mumbai on Thursday, April 28, 2022.
The streamer not only revealed the new seasons of its sleeper hits like Mirzapur, Paatal Lok, and The Family Man, but also some brand-new series starring Shahid Kapoor, Naga Chaitanya, and Sonakshi Sinha, including Farzi and Dahhad.
Adhura, a supernatural thriller that will be made by Emmay Entertainment, is another highly anticipated brand-new show. Let’s discuss the show.
Adhura Star Cast & Crew
The female lead in the movie is played by actress Rashika Dugal, who is well known for playing Beena Tripathi in Prime Video’s Mirzapur series. The actress is not new to the world of OTT because she has already acted in and garnered positive reviews for a number of web series, including A Suitable Boy (2020), Made in Heaven (2019), Delhi Crime (2019), and Out of Love (2019–21). After Mirzapur and Made in Heaven, Adhura is the third Amazon Prime web series in which she will make an appearance.
The male lead in the series is played by Ishwak Singh, who has acted in films like Malaal and Veere Di Wedding. He previously played the youthful, idealistic cop Imran Ansari in the Prime Video crime drama Paatal Lok and the streamer anthology movie Unpaused.
The series’ co-writers, Ananya Banerjee and Anand Jain, as well as Gauravv K. Chwala, who is most known for his work in P.O.W. Bandi Yuddh Ke (2016), are behind the camera for this supernatural thriller.
Nikhil Advani, his sister Monisha Advani, and Madhu Bhojwai are all co-funding it through their production company Emmay Entertainment, which has previously worked on films like D-Day, Airlift, Katti Batti, Lucknow Central, Satyameva Jayate, Baazaar, Indoo Ki Jawani, etc.
