DD to launch a new serial 'Agaaz'

NEW DELHI: Doordarshan today announced the telecast of its new serial, Agaaz, from 8 January. The serial will be telecast on Mondays at 9 pm on DD-1.

Agaaz is the story of a single man's resolve to battle and rise above the world, to rule it. It traces the ambition of a young man, Vikram, journeying through years of achievements, toil, sacrifices and above all vengeance, and how in the end his past action leads to his ruin at the hands of a woman he once humiliated.

The story starts with Vikram as an upcoming and struggling actor. His performance is appreciated by critics. Vikram's friend recommends his name to well-known director Sanjay. The latter is impressed by his acting and asks him to play the lead role in his film, provided Maya - a leading actress of the time agrees. Maya refuses to act opposite Vikram.

This creates problems about finding producers and sponsors, but Sanjay a strong-headed man moves ahead and manages to complete the film. Vikram becomes a big hit in the film industry and never looks back.

His success and performance on the screen impresses Maya and slowly she comes close to Vikram and they start having a relationship.

But for some reason, Vikram one day suddenly breaks off the relationship. Maya - utterly humiliated - vanishes into thin air Vikram reaches the pinnacle of success and becomes a superstar, director, producer and is called the Godfather of the industry'.

His production house rules the box office. Vikram's 55th Birthday coincides with 25 years of his company and a golden merger with an Australian company.

After a week, Vikram is shocked, as the Australian counterpart announces a three-year freeze over any production, as they want to analyse the market. Now Vikram is left with no work and gradually sinks into poverty.

The Australian partner is none other than Maya Sanyal, the wounded woman he had once humiliated.

The serial has been produced by Mayur Srivastava and directed by Manish Srivastava. Kanwaljeet Singh, Neha Sharad, Tez Sapru, Gitika, Sonia Kapur and Sanjay Swaraj play the major roles in the serial.
