On Friday 21 January eExtra switches one supernatural shero for another.
Vishkanya replaces Naagin 3
at 16h45, with a localised, English title of Blue Venom Girl.
She's blue and poisonous and gorge obviously, and goes by the name of Aparajita. Her skin turns blue when she feels conflict.
She was born as a Visha Kanya, a mythological Hindi being, best described today as a femme fatale.
The story goes that these Visha Kanya girls had poison in their blood and bodily fluids and could kill someone by touch or a kiss.
Emperors would use them to assassinate their enemies.
Flashforward to eExtra and the lead character's mother wants this from her. Aparajita is a Visha Kanya but she doesn't know it at first.
Her mother kept her locked up in a room as she was growing up so that she didn't have contact with anyone.
Once grown up, she's allowed out for the first time to attend a party at the Mittal family mansion but not because her mother Kalpana wants her to socialise.
No. Her mother wants her to kill them all.
Kalpana was left paralysed years ago because of Nandita Mittal and now she wants revenge, starting with the murder of Nandita's son Malay.
The problem: Aparajita falls in love with Malay.
These are the first teasers:
Friday 21 January 2022
Malay's mother Nandita performs a sanctity ritual to purify him. Kalpana grants Aparajita her freedom to live a normal life.
Monday 24 January 2022
Kalpana prevents Nandita from cancelling the party scheduled at the Mittal mansion the next day by curing Malay using a concoction.
Tuesday 25 January 2022
Kalpana goes to the party without Aparajita, Malay calms Nandita by admitting his witchy curiosity.
Wednesday 26 January 2022
Kalpana tells Aparajita to avoid any physical contact and food/liquid consumption at the party. Aparajita arrives at the house party of the Mittals and stuns all with her beauty.
Thursday 27 January 2022
Kalpana takes Tapur back home to scold her, leaving Aparajita alone at the party. Aparajita is groped by a drunkard, Vikas Agarwal. She runs into a room where Malay sees her.
Friday 28 January 2022
Aparajita cries on hearing Tapur remonstrating to Kalpana about her secondary treatment compared to her cousin's.
