Producers Akashdeep Sabir and Sheeba's Cinetek Telefilms Pvt. Ltd. have come up with a horror show with a difference on Sony TV which has been titled as Bhoot Aaya'. It is based on the real life incidents which people have experienced it. TellyBuzz spoke to producer Aakashdeep to know more about this show...

Let's see what Akashdeep has to share with us...

From where did the idea of Bhoot Aaya originated?

We were shooting with Anurag Basu and the team on the hilly region of New Zealand for Sahara's show Karishma but a localite told us to finish the work soon and pack up early. We denied saying, we can't finish our work so soon but they told us that nobody stays here after sunset. Anurag Basu and we all laughed at it and while on our way to the hotel, we were discussing about the different stories occurring in different parts of our country. It was after then when we decided to make a serial on it as we can get lot of such incidents and stories to hear. So, the idea came into our mind 10 years back and we started writing and made the first pilot 2 years back. We met the channel people and discussed about this concept and the show got a green signal after the channel got a vacant time slot.

What kind of research has been done for the show?

Luckily, we have got a great contribution from Gaurav Tiwariji (the lead investigator of Indian Paranormal Society). He gets lot of stories and experiences from the people who have encountered such bizarre incidents and he tries to help the person to get out of it with the help of his investigation team. They help to boost up the confidence of the victim. We have discovered from his stories that if there is a ghost seen then it is there for three reasons - 1. To take revenge. 2. To fulfill the unfilled wish. 3. For redemption.

From where are you finding the stories and the victims?

We are getting the stories from Gauravji. We can't even just listen to people who tell stories and shoot with them. We only move further when the IPS team says an OK' to us after listening to the victims' stories. We are selecting stories where the victim's family is involved and a series of incidents have happened with them. We are making this series with a motive to come out with the limitations of showing a horror series having ghosts with white hair, read eyes and face with masks. We are trying to be real as possible. We are making it as it is recited by the victims to us. If the victim has told us that he/she has seen a white colored eye ghost then only we are showing a ghost like this in the show. You won't get watch Baba or Tantrik on our show who will be giving solutions to the victims rather we are taking a scientific route.

Zee TV's Fear Files is also based on the same concept. How different is Bhoot Aaya going to be?

When Fear Files started, I felt bad that this concept is ready with me and it has come earlier than mine so now people will say that I am copying the concept. We had already decided about it earlier that if we are making this show then we will be taking real life stories in it which has come from IPS (Indian Paranormal Society). We will be only taking up true and real stories.  

What has been the biggest challenge for you to make the show?

It's been going and meeting the real people whom Gauravji finalizes. We go to their places to meet those people and after we reach there and listen to their stories, they deny sharing their stories on camera. If we have to shoot about someone's haunted property then the person denies thinking about the future of the property as no one will purchase it in the future. So, these are the problems that occur most of the times when we meet people and we tend to miss out on some really good stories.

How is it working with Ayush Raina, director of the show?

Ayush is a good and a close friend of mine. We have worked together on so many projects. He has directed horror movies too while working on this project. Ayush will be directing few episodes initially and later he will become the Creative Director and I will be the Creative Producer. We both will concentrate on meeting people and instructing writers to use the same stories in the show as it is told by the victim. Ayush is a very talented guy and we have a very good tuning and it's good to work with him.  

Have you come across the stories of kids?

Yes, we have but they don't want to come on the camera. We have come across a story of a kid who is getting troubled by a bad spirit and the child is so innocent that she doesn't even know that who is troubling her. We are avoiding doing such stories related to kids thinking about their social life.

What are your future plans?

My Santa Banta movie is ready. I am in talks with SAB TV channel and Star Plus for some new projects. Firstly, I am concentrating on this show then will start working on my next movie.
