Uski Nazar Se Bachke Rehna-Aa Rahi Hai ‘Daayan’: Monalisa

By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 02nd August:- India is a land of folklores bathed in endless allegories founded across centuries. Stories that talk of the real and the imaginary, of the known and the unknown, of the living and the mystic. One such story deeply entrenched in our psyches is that of Daayans, and their Evil Eye or ‘Buri Nazar’. For centuries Daayans have been dwelling in this land, migrating to places & forms, awaiting reincarnation. And this begs the question-What if Daayans are not just in sleepy towns but in city homes like yours? In bustling streets and crowded malls? And most importantly, how do you know for sure that the person sitting next to you isn’t a Daayan? StarPlus’ offering ‘Nazar’ is a never-seen before supernatural fantasy drama which brings to you, a Daayan in the modern world in the bustling metropolis of Mumbai. The intriguing and fascinating character of the Daayan called Mohana, is played by beautiful Bhojpuri actress Monalisa and she has become TV’s most powerful and hair-raising villain yet. 
Monalisa said that this is her Hindi fiction debut on Television and she is enthralled to play such a differentiated character. Since childhood she has heard so many stories about the existence of Daayans and ‘Buri Nazar’, but never imagined playing one on television. The gripping storyline, the thrill of supernatural incidents in very modern and contemporary settings and the Daayan’s aura are some of the reasons for doing the show. She enjoys playing her and unravelling each of her elements as the show progresses.
Nazar unfolds the tale of a Daayan’s dark energies that are said to surround the Rathore family since generations and how this can affect their lives. According to folklore, Daayans have a long braid or ‘Chhoti’, which contains all their power, they have backward feet (‘Ulte Paer’) and their presence can suck the life out of everything around them. The phrase ‘buri nazar na lage’ is common in Indian households for a reason–a Daayan’s evil eye or ‘Nazar’ possesses the ability to harm an individual and his entire family. People believe that hanging red chilies and lemons (‘nimbu mirchi’) on doorways to houses can protect one from the evil eye.
The show embraces a stellar star cast - Harsh Rajput, Ankur Nayyar, Niyati Fatnani, Smita Bansal, Ashita Dhawan, Ritu Seth in other prominent roles.
