Adhura Horror Series On Prime Video
‘Adhura’ revolves around the themes of guilt, remorse, and revenge, unfolding through two distinct timelines set in 2022 and 2007. Secrets and chilling events haunt the students and staff of a prestigious boarding school, transforming a nostalgic reunion into something sinister when Adhiraj Jaisingh (played by Ishwak Singh) encounters Vedant Malik (played by Shrenik Arora), a troubled 10-year-old student. As past and present collide, a dark secret threatens to emerge, linking Adhiraj to Vedant, as stated in the official plotline.
Aparna Purohit, head of India originals at Prime Video, said that she is confident that ‘Adhura’ will engage, provoke and enthrall its subscribers.
“Adhura is a complex, layered, and immersive world where once-familiar corridors and hallways, become a labyrinth of fear and uncertainty. Supernatural horror is an extremely popular genre not just in India but across the world so we are extremely excited to partner with Nikkhil Advani once again, in a genre that neither Emmay Entertainment nor Prime Video has attempted before,” she said.
