Actor Rasika Dugal will be headlining a new horror series, ‘Adhura’ with seven episodes from Prime Video which will start streaming July 7, 2023.

Directed by Ananya Banerjee and Gauravv K. Chawla, written by Banerjee, the series is produced by Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani, of Emmay Entertainment.

As per a statement, ‘Adhura’ delves into the deep-rooted fears and inner demons of its characters, promising a gripping and suspenseful journey into the supernatural realm. It follows the theme of guilt, remorse and revenge.

The story unfolds through two timelines, in 2022 and 2007, as secrets and chilling events plague the students and staff of a prestigious boarding school. What starts as a nostalgic reunion turns sinister when Adhiraj Jaisingh (Ishwak Singh) encounters Vedant Malik (Shrenik Arora), a troubled 10-year-old student. As the past and present collide, a dark secret threatens to emerge, linking Adhiraj to Vedant.
Aparna Purohit, head of India originals, Prime Video said, “Adhura is a complex, layered and an immersive world where once-familiar corridors and hallways, become a labyrinth of fear and uncertainty.”

Producers consider supernatural horror extremely popular across continents.

Gauravv K Chawla and Ananya Banerjee, directors, Emmay Entertainment, said, “As fans of this genre, we were eager to tell this classic tale of a ghost in the boarding school. Haven’t we all shared ghost stories in dim-lit rooms with our friends? Adhura to us is one such story, waiting to be shared with our audiences.”

“With Adhura, we are exploring the horror, supernatural genre for the first time and are delighted to venture into this space with Prime Video. We are glad to collaborate with them once again after the immense success of Mumbai Diaries,” said Nikkhil Advani, producer, Emmay Entertainment.
