Mumbai: 18th
January, 2018: Viu, the premium video-on-demand platform by Vuclip, a PCCW
media company announced the launch of Spotlight 2 making this a franchise of
the successful Viu Originals series Spotlight. Presented in association with
known writer and director Vikram Bhatt, the theme of the franchise is a running
series that captures the rise, fall and resurrection of a music superstar.
An intense
and stormy romance between two headstrong people on the opposite ends of the
spectrum – Spotlight 2 explores the exasperating reality of being a music
celebrity. The series is being directed by Siddhant Sachdeva and will feature
popular television actor Karan V Grover along with two dazzling former Miss
India’s , Aditi Arya and Ruhi Singh. Focusing on compelling content offered in
a contemporary setting, the series will feature more than 7 originally composed
tracks brought to life by soulful musicians Harish Sanganay, Ankit Shah and
other popular artists. The show goes live on Viu (Both App and The Web) from
26th January 2018.
Based on the
buzzing music industry in Mumbai, Spotlight 2 is a story of a talented but
flamboyant musician, Vicky, who is on the verge of career-suicide. His hard
work and melodious voice helped him climb the ladder of success in the music
industry in a very short span of time. But his arrogance, drug addiction and
utter disregard for the industry and his fans brings him crashing down. The
story is the journey of this lost character with a heart of gold trying to
connect back with his music with the help of his ex-girlfriend and how he rises
back from the fall.
 Speaking on the launch of Spotlight franchise,
Manasi Sapre, Head of Programming, Viu India said, “At Viu, we focus on
creating compelling content and a viewing experience that captivates our
audience and is relatable at the same time. We are able to provide this content
because we associate with extremely capable and talented people from all walks
of life. With Spotlight 2, we celebrate the great journey we have taken on with
Vikram Bhatt. We are excited to launch the Spotlight franchise and in the upcoming
months, you will see a lot more original shows from Viu that will surely going
to excite the audience.”
 Speaking on the release of Spotlight 2, Vikram
Bhatt says, “When Spotlight 1 was a success, I was confident I will make
another one. Spotlight 2 chronicles a musician’s journey as he falls to fame,
and then, strives to make a comeback. A story that encapsulates the loneliness
that stardom brings along with the glitz and glamour in the life of a
superstar. And the story is very apt for the digital platform. Today, the first
screen of preference is the cell phone so it was only natural that I present
this franchise to the audience on the web.”
 The 13 episode series which can be binged
watched on 26th January 2018, will mark the launch of the twelfth original
series by Viu. With shows like Gehraiyaan, PillA, Pelli Gola and Social, Viu is
ceaselessly introducing refreshing concepts combined with gripping scripts and
revered talent to ensure an exhilarating viewing experience for their viewers.
Since its successful launch in India last year, Viu has witnessed exponential
growth in terms of the audience base and engagement.
