Asur is a crime thriller that promises to take the audience on a journey of two opposing worlds — forensic science on the one hand and the mysteries of Indian mythology on the other.
“The plot and storyline is so unique that it is definitely going to leave the audience on the edge of their seats at all times,” said Arshad, before adding: “I cannot wait to see the reaction of the audience towards Asur.”
The series also features Barun Sobti, who shared that shooting for the show was demanding.
“It is the most demanding character I have portrayed in my career. Personally, I have always felt that content created in India lacks good writing, and writing in our show is the biggest hero. Everyone on this show was just doing their job and they did it to the best of their ability. Working with the amazing ensemble cast was an experience to cherish. I think, for ‘Asur’, the right people were hired for the right job,” said Barun.
