After the success of its Original web series Black Widows, an Indian adaptation of the Finnish drama of the same name, ZEE5 Global is all set to premiere ‘Aafat-E-Ishq’, an Indian adaptation of the award winning international Hungarian Film ‘Liza, the Fox-Fairy’. Directed by Indrajit Nattoji and starring Neha Sharma, Deepak Dobriyal, Amit Sial, Namit Das and Ila Arun, ‘Aafat-E-Ishq’ will premiere on 29th October 2021, exclusively on ZEE5 Global.

Produced by ZEE Studios, ‘Aafat-E-Ishq’ is the story of Lallo and her quest for true love. Lallo, portrayed by Neha Sharma, finds herself as a prime suspect following a series of multiple deaths while an ancient curse looms large, threatening to destroy everything and everyone around her. A dark dramedy, ‘Aafat-E-Ishq’ has an interesting concept with elements and a whodunnit twist. The original Hungarian film ‘Liza, the Fox-Fairy’ was a huge success at the box-office and won awards at numerous film festivals including Best Director, Best Film, Best Actor (Female), Best Visual Effects and Best Soundtrack.

Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global, said, “We’re focused on bringing our viewers handpicked stories across diverse genres and storylines. Supernatural and fantasy themed stories have seen much traction globally and we’re sure that Aafat-E-Ishq with its quirky storyline and dark humour will be a natural draw for our global viewers!”
