Arya’s Amazon Prime Video series, helmed by Milind Rau, titled The Village

Amazon Prime Video announced a host of new titles today, at their See Where It Takes You event held in Mumbai. The title for Kollywood star Arya’s debut web series was also announced at the event. The series is titled The Village, and the streaming giant also announced the same on their official social media handles, sharing a first look poster for the show as well.

The poster shows Arya in a very dire state in a foggy forest, as several hands grab at him and try to pull him into a pit in the ground. Inches away is a blood-stained knife, which he is seen reaching for.

Check out the post below:

A teaser for the show was also unveiled at the event, which was hosted by Karan Johar. The teaser gives a glimpse into the tumultuous fate in store for Arya and his family, as they have to face off against some spine-chilling creatures.
