After recently announcing the Indian adaptation of Finnish drama Black Widows, ZEE5 will soon present multi-awarded international Hungarian Film Liza, the Fox-Fairy which will be titled Aafat-e-Ishq, with talented actress Neha Sharma in the lead.
A strong narrative, the movie has amusing characters and mysterious events that will set the tone with a big reveal at the end. Directed by Indrajit Nattoji and produced by Zee Studios, the ZEE5 Original film will feature a stellar ensemble cast – Ila Arun, Namit Das, Gautam Rode, Pravessh Rana along with Neha Sharma.
Aafat-e-Ishq is the story of a woman’s quest for true love, who finds herself as a prime suspect following a series of multiple deaths while an ancient curse looms large, threatening to destroy everything and everyone around her. In this sharply observed tale, the supernatural aspect will add a texture to it.
“Post the announcement of Black Widows adaptation by ZEE5, there has been a lot of buzz in the media and fans alike. And now we are back with ‘Aafat-e-Ishq’, based on the highly awarded Hungarian film Liza-The Fox-Fairy, coming soon on the platform. This is an interesting concept, dark humour with a pinch of supernatural, which will be exciting for the audience as well. We have an exciting cast too, featuring in a concept that is quite different from what we have done so far," says Aparna Acharekar, Programming Head, ZEE5 India.
Speaking on the film, Ashima Avasthi, VP & Head, Zee Studios Originals commented, “The film takes the audiences on a complete emotional roller-coaster ride of love, lust, intrigue and mystery with a little bit of supernatural that will keep you at the edge of your seat. We, at Zee Studios Originals, have been working on bringing new and exciting, untold stories to the audiences as a part of our diverse portfolio of original content. We’re excited to partner with ZEE5 to bring this black comedy to our audiences soon”.
