Mr. Sukesh Motwani, Fiction Programming Head, Zee TV says,

‘Fear Files’ is not just another horror or crime show. It delivers a surprising and downright chilling look into the world of the paranormal by those who have experienced the other side. Using a mixture of intimate first-hand testimony, and gritty realistic drama, ‘Fear Files’ will transport viewers into a world turned upside-down by extraordinary, terrifying and sometimes life-threatening paranormal events. This series has a less sensationalized approach and our aim was to involve, engage and entertain the viewer and underplay the ‘scary element’ so that it looks more believable for the television audiences.

‘Fear Files’ features true and astonishing stories of the paranormal, told by some of the people who lived through them. They are actual story tellers and their emotions don’t lie. The purpose is to bring the fear these people felt to your TV screens. And where real people have been hesitant to come in front of the camera, we have cast actors who will re-enact each experience with same passion and emotion. We will also have a paranormal expert on the show whose role will be to decode the myth or give a plausible explanation to the viewers as to why ‘the unbelievable occurrence’ happened!”

Producers of the show, Abhimanyu Singh from Contiloe Productions and Majid Aazam from Dreamz Images, have spent almost a year on researching the incidents to be showcased on ‘Fear Files’. Using the highest production values, the show will be presented in a new video diary format with a very polished and professional look. It is being shot in as many real locations as possible like Mumbai, Delhi, Ghaziabad/ Noida, Bhangarh (Rajasthan), Himachal Pradesh, Mussoorie, Haryana, Goa and Kolkata. ‘
