The series’ story unfolds in two time periods, 2022 and 2007, when mysteries and horrors haunt the students and staff of a prestigious boarding school.
What starts out as nostalgia turns sinister during a boarding school reunion. It all starts with the encounter of Adhiraj Jaisingh (Ishwak Singh) and a troubled 10-year-old student, Vedant Malik (Shrenik Arora). As past and present collide, a deep secret threatens to emerge, linking Adhiraj to Vedant.
Aparna Purohit, Head of India Originals, Prime Video said about the series, “The story of this series goes through very picturesque episodes. The characters of the story know the locality very well.
This familiar territory leads everyone into very shocking and scary situations. Supernatural horror is such a genre in which the artworks created are famous not only in India but all over the world. We are happy to reunite with Nikkhil Advani while creating a series like this. This type of series has never been made before by either Emmay Entertainment or Prime Video. We are sure that this Hindi horror series will be liked by the audience.
Director Gaurav K Chawla and Ananya Banerjee said, “We have done a lot of work in different genres. This time we have made a horror series. We have brought the horror story of boarding school in front of the audience in this series made in this genre. There is a lot of enthusiasm. Have you ever heard or narrated ghost stories from friends in dimly lit rooms? ‘Adhoora’ is one such story that we want to tell to the audience.
“We invite viewers to step inside the sinister corridors of a boarding school in the hills, where the past constantly haunts the present. Some mystery is hidden in the shadows here. The series forces viewers to ponder what is real and what is fiction, how much of it is your own fear and whether a sinister specter is following you. This question makes you sweat.
In this series, all the actors including Ishwak, Rasika, Shrenik, Poojan have brought the characters alive on screen exactly as they were written. We are very excited to bring him to the audience.”

This series explores the depths of human emotions, shows the complexity of relationships. Each and every mode of the series leaves the audience bewildered. Also, it piques the curiosity of the viewers so much that they can’t wait for the next episode. We are very happy to work with all the actors working in this series, especially Shrenik Arora has to be mentioned here, she is a surprise package in this series.
