Trinayani promises to be a visual treat for viewers with outstanding VFX effects offering an authentic film-like experience. An aesthetically narrated saga delves into the life of a suave and ambitious business tycoon, Vishal played by Chandu Gowda. The titular role of Trinayani is played by Ashika Gopal Padukone, a seer who takes the decision to live her life for the betterment of people by leveraging her celestial powers.

Nagabhairavi will chronicle the saga of Nagarjuna (Pavan) and Bhairavi (Yashmi Gowda). The onus of securing the Nagasampada is upon Bhairavi which is passed to her through her ancestors. Lord Shiva blesses Bhairavi with a divine amulet. Nonetheless, when Bhairavi is in grave danger, Nagarjuna is her one and only protector. It remains to be seen how Bhairavi and Nagarjuna fight all the odds to secure the Nagasampada.

Our endeavor is that these three shows in which one is Non-fiction and other two are fictions with varied storylines and different backgrounds strike a chord with viewers, moving them emotionally so they connect with the show, characters and thus be their new companions in the day time.”
