Mumbai – Vuclip, a PCCW Media Company, has announced the names and the star cast of two premium shows that will be launched on its OTT service Viu next month as part of ‘Viu Originals’. This announcement comes close on the heels of the success of recent Viu original series, including What the Duck, a cricket comedy show and Viru Ke Funde, which was hosted by Virender Sehwag.
Presented by Viu and Bollywood ace Vikram Bhatt, Gehraiyaan and Spotlight will air in February and is expected to delight consumers in markets such as India, Middle East and South East Asia serviced by Viu. Written by Bhatt, these two shows are co-produced by Viu, Bhatt and Culture Machine. Gehraiyaan is directed by Sidhant Sachdev and Spotlight is directed by Suhail Tatari.
Gehraiyaan will be an urban supernatural thriller with television A-listers Sanjeeda Sheikh and Vatsal Sheth reigniting their unconventional on-screen chemistry for a digital audience. The show will also star Trishaan Maini and Kajal Pisal. The other show, with a working title of Spotlight, is the story of a small-town girl who overcomes all odds to make it big in the glitz and glamour of Bollywood. Tridha Choudhury, who has acted in Bengali and Telugu films and has won audience appreciation for her TV shows, has been roped in to play the lead. Actors Arif Zakaria, Sid Makkar, Krunal Pandit and Rajesh Khera also star in the show.
