Star Plus has confirmed that its new thriller ‘Qayamat Ki Raat’ will spruce up the channel’s weekend schedule from this month.

The show starring Vivek Dahiya and Karishma Tanna, revolves around a young couple who are tested when faced with the power of the tantrik’s curse. It also stars Dipika Kakar, Abhinav Kohli, Papia Sengupta, Sumit Bharadwaj and Apara Mehta.

Balaji Telefilms Joint MD Ekta Kapoor said, “Qayamat Ki Raat is a show which presents the story of spine-chilling TANTRIK on television. It’s a fresh story about human emotions being tested when faced with supernatural forces. The unexplored folklore of ‘Tantrik Kabhi Martein Nahin’ becomes the terrifying nightmare of the lead couple in this story. The Tantrik‘s look itself has been worked upon for months with detailed prosthetics unlike anything else seen on television. The story will keep viewers hooked with a never seen before horrific villain and the unique lead pairing of Karishma Tanna and Vivek Dahiya. I am really looking forward to this exciting partnership with StarPlus to present this gripping story.”

A Star Plus spokesperson said, “Experimenting with new concepts has always excited our team at Star Plus. This show is a fantasy thriller set in today’s times and the story is woven around the lives of young adults who will face their worst fears. The show has romance, family drama and thrill at the heart of the fantastical context. We wanted to introduce this genre at a fresh timeslot to encourage a new viewing opportunity for the consumers seeking exciting content.”

‘Qayamat Ki Raat’ will air at 19:00 on weekends from Saturday 23rd June.
