Aahat opens with good ratings...

Fireworks and Sony's popular horror show Aahat - The Whole New Series has opened to good viewer response which is indicative in first week ratings...

As we all know, B.P. Singh's Firework Productions and Sony are back with a whole new series of Aahat. The show which launched on Friday the 13th of November, opened to a great response, and their first week TVR is indicative of this.

According to our source, "The first week's story in Aahat which was a continuation with the story of CID has been well received by the audience. Friday's opening episode got them an average of 3.2 TVR, while Saturday's average TVR marked 3.5".

Aahat has Chaitanya Chaudhary, Krystle D'Souza and Vishal Gandhi as the main protagonists who work as documenters. The first week's story had Sreejita De and Vishal Watwani as the principal cast, and the story was about a particular train which arrives at the Blara Junction which actually kills people who board it.

Our source informs, "The story used for the first week was basically a script which was planned to be made into a film. However, when Fireworks decided to come up with a whole new series of the popular show Aahat, they worked on the same script so that they get a gala opening for their show".

The production house has not left any stone unturned in getting the best of visual effects. "The train sequence which was shot cost the production house nearly 50 lakhs. The scene was shot at the very famous railway station, Apta, which is situated about 150 kms away from Panvel. This is the very train in which was shot the popular Kajol-SRK scene in the movie Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge. The train has always been a popular spot for Bollywood film makers, and scenes in Khakee, Mohabbatein and Wanted have also been shot here.. In addition to this, the underwater sequence which was shown in the episode has also received acclaim for the manner in which the team has shot them. This particular sequence cost them nearly Rs. 50,000/", informs our source.

The second story which will be telecast this Friday will see Priya Bhatija as the principal cast.

Even though Aahat isn't really scary but the way the epi was shot was really good compared to other Indian horror shows. I love this show and hopefully it will get the highest ratings in the weekend slots for Sony =D

Good luck to the entire team of Aahat :p
