Duranga trailer out: The dual life of Gulshan Devaiah
The series is about a man leading a double life while his wife investigates a spate of murders
Directed by Pradeeep Sarkar and Aijaz Khan, Duranga is the official Indian adaptation of the Korean show, Flower of Evil. The 9-part series stars Gulshan Devaiah, Drashti Dhami, Abhijit Khandkekar, Barkha Sengupta, Rajesh Khattar, Divya Seth and Zakir Hussain. It will stream on ZEE5 from August 19.
Duranga follows chef Sammit Patel (Gulshan Devaiah), who appears as the ideal man, father and husband. However, is this man too good to be true? Meanwhile, Sammit’s Inspector wife, Ira (Drashti Dhami) begins investigating a series of copycat murders by the suspected accomplice of a psychopathic serial killer Bala, twenty years after his suicide. The case leads Ira to shocking revelations about her husband’s past.
Talking about the series, Gulshan Devaiah said, “What meets the eye is not what it seems or is it? That’s Sammit in one sentence, but I guess humans are far more complex and grey than one sentence can explain, and Sammit is delightfully complex and all sorts of grey. He loves his family deeply but has a past, which, if revealed, may take them away from him and so he must do whatever it takes to keep his family together. It was a lot of fun & a fair bit challenging for me to figure out and seamlessly play the two sides of Sammit, one that you see & the other that you don’t see”.
