The secrets revealed by this Aghori could alter the myths of the ancient, beliefs of the existing and course of the forthcoming.
“We would like to ensure that we execute all the aspects of this universe and bring out every character and story to the screen, with as much precision as possible. Web series fit our purpose better than adapting it into a feature film,” she said.
