As the premiere of this Amazon Original draws near, Rasika reveals a spine-tingling truth – she couldn't escape the eerie sensations that crept into her room after Adhura’s shoot. "The eerie atmosphere on set was unlike anything I've experienced before which spooked me every time I got back to the room after shooting. The suspenseful storyline and the immersive production design had a profound effect on me,” shared Rasika. 

The actor further says, “As an actor, I pride myself on immersing myself into my characters, but Adhura took it to another level. There were moments when the line between fiction and reality blurred, leaving me with a lingering sense of unease even when the cameras stopped rolling. It's a testament to the exceptional storytelling and the dedication of the entire team. I can't wait for audiences to feel the same spine-tingling thrill when they watch Adhura."

Adhura is Prime Video’s first bold step into the realm of Hindi horror genre. Helmed by directors Ananya Banerjee and Gauravv K Chawla, and brought to life by the production house Emmay Entertainment, the anticipated series revolves around a group of high school friends, while Rasika Dugal, Shrenik Arora, and Rahul Dev take on pivotal roles that are bound to leave an indelible mark. 

Adhura is set for a premiere on Prime Video on July 7
