A love story and a paranormal angle are being blended together to form a show like Shree on
Zee TV. The creatives proclaim that Pavitra bandhan oar ashubh saya which amply substantiates the combination of two distinctively separate storyline in a seamless lattice.
On the launch of the show, J. D Majethia, Producer, Hats Off Production said, “This is the first of its kind with a supernatural element in it.”
We asked him the reason for such a show with a different storyline. “We as producers also want to experiment, or else things become monotonous. People have also started accepting something different today, so I thought of experimenting,” he adds further.
Won’t this show promote superstition about spirits in masses? “This will not evoke public, but will kick off the superstitious thoughts from their minds. I can only say that you will understand once you watch the show”, avers JD.
Can the show be termed as a horror story? “Not at all, we had to keep the thin line in mind between mystery and horror. Shree is a family drama which includes emotions, humor, love and mystery. There is an emotion like fear which is the super natural element, but not horror,” states the Producer.
J. D also feels that creating comedy is important, but one needs to experiment. “The day you stop experimenting, your growth in the industry will stop,” he concludes.
The star cast for the show includes new comers like Wasna Ahmed (Shree) and Pankaj Singh Tiwari (Hari). Hari is the ideal son-in-law for every Gujarati family looking for a prospective groom. But ever since his parents have started looking for a match for him, there have been 12 rejected proposals. The family tantrik infers that there is a presence of an ashubh saya on Hari that is preventing him from getting married and recommends looking for a daunting, brave girl who will be able to ward off the evil spirit; the spirit bent to foil all efforts of anyone trying to get married to Hari. Enter Shree, timid and an unassuming girl, the least likely person to ward off the ashubh saya, who is scared of her own shadow…
Will Shree be able to stake her claim to Hari by defeating the paranormal forces? Let’s see whether this show wins the heart of audience or horrifies them…
The show is to be launched on 22 December from Monday to Thursday at 10:30 pm.
