SonyLIV shows how hate converts to love in ‘Black Coffee’


MUMBAI: Can you fall in love with someone you have always detested? They say, don’t get too personal at work, but what happens when business leads you to your true love?

Addressing the complexities of love and taking on the concept of attraction, SonyLIV, brings to the small screen Black Coffee; a seven-episode web series by Beyond Originals.

The series is about love changing perceptions and breaking boundaries. The series is centred around a bestselling novelist, Dhruv Narang (Param Singh) and Hemal Shah (Harshita Gaur), two individuals who are leading their lives with fixed notions about love. The story underlines the bittersweet romance of the lead couple, their constant clashes and their journey from hate to love.

SonyLIV, EVP and head - digital business Uday Sodhi, said, “At SonyLIV, it is our constant endeavour to deliver content that not just entertains but also evokes emotions. We are happy to associate with Beyond Originals to bring entertaining yet relatable stories to the small screen. Keeping our brand ethos ‘We LIV to entertain’ in mind, we will continue to curate content that enhances viewer experience and establishes a connect with them.”

Beyond Originals Founder Yash Patnaik said, "Black Coffee is the first of Beyond Originals’ offering of digital content. Our previous series with Sony Kuchh Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi was well-received and appreciated by the viewers. I am hoping that Black Coffee continues to spread love and be appreciated.”
