Vish is a story of Vishaili and Vishaila whose lifespan extends to thousands of years and are required to change their bodies to a human body once the poison in them reaches alarming levels. While Vaishali finds solace in Sabrina's body, Vishaila's accomplishes are interrupted turning him defunct. In the search to keep her half-dead lover alive, she sets out on a mission to give him a new lease of life. She marries well-off Mohit and thus crosses path with his doctor Aliya and his brother in- law Aditya.

The show will delight the viewers with quality VFX effects and more so with extremely riveting characters.”

Producers, Alind Srivastava, and Nissar Parvej, Peninsula Pictures, said, “Supernatural is the genre of the season and we wanted to offer something that will keep our viewers intrigued at all times. Vish is a supernatural romantic thriller with a classy and bold treatment. There has been extensive use of computer graphics and visual effects that add to the grandeur of the show making it visually appealing to the audience. We are confident that the concept of Vish will receive appreciation and we have high expectations from it as the team has worked hard to provide entertaining content.”

Commenting on her role, Debina Bonnerjee said, “I play the character Sabrina, a rich woman married to an affluent businessman but deep within she is a powerful and venomous Vishaili. Her purpose in life is to retrieve Vishaila to his past glory and procreate their progeny to prevent it from extinction. The overall concept of the show and my characterization is what drew me to this role and I am very excited to dive back into the exciting world of television.”

Commenting on his role, Krrip Kapur Suri said, “I play the antagonist Vishaira in the show who hunts for Vishaili and is the bane of Sabrina’s life. He derives his power from the poison with which he manipulates people. Time and again, Vishaili and Vishaira get pitted against each other and it leads to a lot of drama. Negative roles have always been up my alley and I hope the viewers like me in this new avatar.”

Adding further, Vishal Vashishtha said, “I will be seen essaying the role of Aditya who gets embroiled in Vishaili’s evil plan and becomes an integral part of her life. This is my first supernatural fantasy show and I am looking forward to a great experience.”

Actor Sana Makbul Khan said, “I will be seen playing the role of Dr. Aliya in the show. Aliya’s character graph is very interesting as she faces Sabrina head-on and fights her at every step of the way. I am excited to be a part of this show and looking forward to the audience feedback.”

As Vishaili sets out on a mission to save her sect and the love of her life, will she be able to succeed and revive Vishaila?

Stay tuned as a mystifying tale of love. Vish premieres on June 10, 2019, and will air every Monday to Friday day at 10:30 PM only on COLORS!
