With a threat to her life, it’s her journey of unmasking the identity of the ‘Daayan’ who is one of her close ones.

Commenting on the new offering, Vishnu Shankar, Head, &TV said, “At &TV we aim to cater to the evolving content palette of our viewers, which is why creating unexplored genres is an immensely exciting proposition for us. We were the first to combine supernatural and romance with Laal Ishq, which has created a niche of its own in the cluttered GEC category. This has encouraged us to now interweave horror and mystery in our new show Daayan. Placed at the primetime weekend slot of 9.00 pm, the audiences are in for thrilling weekends, starting 15th December. The show is a riveting narrative of a young girl Jhanvi Morya’s journey to unveil the identity of the evil Daayan. We are extremely delighted to join hands with Ekta Kapoor and Balaji Telefilms for this project and wholeheartedly welcome the team to the &TV family.”  

Talking about her show, Producer Ekta Kapoor, Balaji Telefilms said, “The team and I are very kicked to present Daayan and have worked really hard designing the show over the past few months. We are happy to see it come to life so beautifully with &TV. Taking viewers through the protagonist, Jhanvi’s journey of unraveling the mystery of the Daayan, the show promises horror, drama, thrill, romance, mystery, an all-in-all great entertainer. With a fantastic team of artists on board, we are sure to create intrigue with the layered plot that will keep the viewers guessing. I have enjoyed creating content in the horror space and I’m glad that audiences have responded well to it. This time too, I’m positive that we have a winner on our hands. With the blessings of God, now the show belongs to the audiences.”  

Having essayed varied roles in the past, talented actress Tinaa Dattaa said, “I’m grateful to have been chosen to play Jhanvi, working with Balaji Telefilms and Ekta again. Horror-mystery as a genre has seen great interest from viewers at large and I’m excited to make way in this space. Jhanvi’s character is unlike any that I have played before, she grows from being vulnerable to being courageous, battling her own demons at times. It’s a thrilling narrative of a simple girl’s repeated trysts with the supernatural and her journey to unveil the evil Daayan amongst her close ones.”
