Mumbai : Colors’ solution-driven show, ‘Code Red’ will now throw light on some of the most popular paranormal occurrences in the country and narrate the untold story behind every supernatural incidence through a brand new series, titled ‘Talaash’.
To take viewers through tales that have influenced their mindsets, Colors has roped in Anita Hassanandani and Shaleen Malhotra for the show. Produced by A Lost Boy Productions, Code Red’s ‘Talaash’ series will narrate urban legends and popular ‘hearsay’ that have impacted the society and went on air from April 20, 2015 at 10.30 pm.
Speaking about the launch of the new series, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head, Colors, said, “Through ‘Code Red’, we have sensitised viewers about issues that impact society based on human frailties, while empowering them to deal with inner and outer demons. Through the initial episodes on ‘Code Red’, we have created a ray of hope to viewers who might have been on the verge of giving up. After ‘Umeed’, ‘Awaaz’ and ‘Chakravyuh’, we are now announcing the ‘Talaash’ series – which brings to light stories that set beliefs in society. Our aim is to bust popular myths that have been passed along generations, forming opinions and set patterns in people. As another aspect of human frailty comes forward, we hope to inform viewers about the existence of certain paranormal energies around us.”
Commenting on the series, producer Vikas Gupta from A Lost Boy Productions, said, “There are stories of oddities and abnormalities which have, over the years, become legends. Code Red’s ‘Talaash’ series promises to create an engaging proposition for viewers while building empathy for the wandering spirits, along with the underlying message of hope.”
Code Red’s ‘Talaash’ touches upon the unknown and the reasons why these paranormal energies exist, while building empathy for them in the minds of the viewers. The series highlights the lasting impact that injustice has had on the minds of those offended. The series aims at demystifying popular myths and urban legends that have been passed along generations.
Some of the tales that will be revealed on Code Red’s ‘Talaash’ during the course of the show include an autorickshaw story based in Mumbai’s suburb of Borivali, a legend about a water-well in Rajasthan, and even the true story behind the ‘unsafe’ claim for Delhi’s Cantonment Road.
