Radhika Apte is on a roll. After establishing herself in the digital space with Lust Stories and Sacred Games, the actor is all set to send chills down your spine in Netflix’s upcoming series Ghoul. The trailer of the web series was released by Netflix on Tuesday. Starring Apte and Manav Kaul in the lead, the one-minute long video is intriguing and horrifying.
Based on Arabic folklore, Ghoul is set at a covert detention centre at which military officials question and often torture suspected terrorists. In the trailer, we see Apte as an interrogator Nida who turns against her father and exposes him as an anti-government activist. Manav Kaul plays a military officer who arrests a suspected terrorist and demands a confession from him. The tables turn when the prisoner exposes the secrets of his interrogator Apte. The official synopsis of the series reads, “You can fight the demons of this world but what about the ones that aren’t?”
