The Indian crime thriller Aranyak, starring Raveena Tandon, Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Ashutosh Rana, and Taneesha Joshi, among others has broken into the rankings of the Global Top 10 non-English TV Shows on Netflix at #8 in its very first week of launch. Directed by Vinay Waikul, the show was released on December 10. It revolves around a police officer, played by Raveena Tandon, who works along with the new inspector to solve a mysterious murder in a fictitious small town of Himachal Pradesh. The story involves political conspiracies, personal agendas and the myth of a dangerous supernatural being and everyone becomes a suspect of the puzzling murder.
The web series on Netflix is the first by Roy Kapur Films. Aranyak has notched up over 10.3 million hours viewed across the world and has made it to the Top 10 lists across 13 countries, including Singapore, New Zealand, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Mauritius, Bangladesh, Oman, Kuwait and India.
Siddharth Roy Kapur is thrilled with the kind of response the show is receiving. He issued a press statement saying, "For the series to have garnered such an astounding viewership in its very first week of launch is a testament to the wonderfully layered characters that Charudutt Acharya has created, the evocative world that has been conceptualised for them to inhabit by Rohan Sippy and Vinay Waikul, and of course, the incredible talent with which they have been embodied by Raveena Tandon, Parambrata Chatterjee, Ashutosh Rana and the rest of our amazing cast." He also thanked the streaming giant and the entire team behind the series for "their blood, sweat and tears in bringing the world of Aranyak to life in the midst of a global pandemic!"
