The spine-chilling trailer of director Mahi V Raghav’s upcoming web series Shaitan is released at a press meet held in Hyderabad on Monday. The trailer stays true to the film’s theme ‘What you call crime, they call it survival.’The trailer shows to what extent a family can go to do a crime for their survival. The show features – Rishi, Shelly, Deviyani and Jaffer in intense roles.
On this occasion, director Mahi V Raghav said “Shaitan is a crime drama. We previously worked on Save The Tigers with Disney Hotstar, which is completely different and has a different target audience. I’ve worked on 4-5 films, and none of them had censorship issues, nudity, or coarse language but this one has everything. When you watch our trailer, you will notice that it contains strong words that are used to tell a strong story.”
He added “Our actors are the most passionate because, when we had constraints, we could make it simple because they were well prepared. It’s been a great experience working with all of them.”
Actor Rishi said, “My name is Rishi, and I work in Kannada films. Saithan is my first Telugu project. My film Kavuldaari was remade in Telugu, so I have a special relationship with the Telugu industry. I’d like to thank Mahi V Raghav garu for writing me a strong role and the entire series so well. He had explored all the dimensions of each character. Shaitan is very hard hitting, intense and realistic show.”
Deviyani said, “Thanks to all media friends who came here to support us. I feel thoroughly blessed because after Save The Tigers within no time Saithan is releasing on Disney Hotstar. Thank you for making Save The Tigers a huge success, and I wish Saithan a lot more success. I had the most difficult role in this series, and I’d like to thank Mahi V Raghav sir for giving me this opportunity. Please support us by watching Saithan on June 15th in Disney Hotstar.”
Shaitan streams on Disney + Hotstar from June 15, 2023
