Vikram Bhatt and Loneranger Productions’ much-expected first daily soap on the web, Unafraid has been in the making for quite sometime now!! The series was to stream on Viu India.
Earlier, actress Ankita Bhargava was supposed to play the lead role. However, after certain differences, she got replaced and in came Aparna Dixit as the lead.
The shoot for the series has been going on for the last few months. In fact, the team had shot in the first week of March too.
But we got to hear a shocker of news that Unafraid has been apparently shelved owing to creative differences between Viu and Vikram Bhatt’s creative team.
Yes, you heard it right!!
A credible source states, “The actors have been notified of the series being shelved. The shoot has been abruptly stopped. The stop happened after Viu and Vikram Bhatt’s team were not on the same wavelength creatively.”
Unafraid’s lead cast included popular names Aparna Dixit, Vipul Gupta, Ajay Choudhary, Aniruddh Dave among many others.
We at IWMBuzz reached out to Producer Vikram Bhatt, who confirmed the news with a text reply that stated, “Yes, Unafraid has been shelved. We have stopped shooting.”
We buzzed the spokesperson at Viu, but Viu declined to comment.
Unafraid was supposed to be directed by Vikram Bhatt.
In between all this, the Vikram Bhatt camp is upbeat with the shoot of its much-expected series, Twisted 2.
