Talking about his thoughts on Aranyak, producer Siddarth Roy Kapur said, “At Roy Kapur Films we are always on the search for unique and diverse stories, and Aranyak is definitely one of those. We are happy to be deepening our relationship with Netflix after Yeh Ballet, and intend to continue to build a strong creative partnership going forward.” He further adds, “Rohan, Vinay and the team have given life to multi-dimensional characters from the intriguing world of Aranyak, which was beautifully conceptualized and written by Charu. We hope the audience will connect with the story and feel the thrill and chills, while being thoroughly engaged and entertained.”
Adding to this, Showrunner Rohan Sippy narrated his experience of working on Aranyak, “Aranyak is a dream turned reality for a lot of us. I remember when Charu told me about his experience while on holiday up in Himachal, where he encountered this intriguing, fascinating lady cop and that sparked the idea for Kasturi’s character. The story from there has just been fascinating to build. It was great to work with Sid again after 15 years and with Vinay who brought this excitement and energy to the project. And to top it all, getting to work with Raveena almost 30 years after we began our association made it all the more special.”
Talking about his experience while making Aranyak, Director Vinay Waikul said, “Making a series is a joyous experience but also a bit of a challenge, especially when you have to create a whole new world for the audiences to be invested in. The genre is something that attracts me as well as a wide set of audiences and with Aranyak we had a lot to explore with the actors as well as the overall treatment of the show. You have characters you can relate to, unforeseen plot twists and a shroud of mystery that leaves you thrilled and wanting to know more. Working with a talented set of crew members and actors that came together as a unit made the experience much more enjoyable.”
Sharing further details, Tanya Bami, Series Head, Netflix India, said, “We are thrilled to bring Aranyak, a layered crime series set in a small hilly town with mysterious inhabitants hiding secrets as dark as the forests that surround them. We are excited to have Raveena Tandon make her streaming debut with us as the very nuanced, complex and gritty local cop, Kasturi. Aranyak tees off a wholesome series slate that we are really excited to bring to our audience across 2022. We have a mix of everything our members love. Exciting dramas and thrillers, returning fan favourite seasons, headlining talent and a mix of the most exciting and eclectic creators.”
