The show experiments with the concept of film and TV integrationthrough an eight-week marketingcampaign to promote the upcoming movie, 'Ek Thi Dayan.' The show is a folklore which will bring together some of the biggest television actors together -- Smriti Irani, Sakshi Tanwar, Aamna Shariff, Shweta Tiwari, Mouli Ganguly, Ankita Lokhande, Kritika Kamra and Pooja Gor will be seen in their regional avatar, with a different story every week.

Life OK GM Ajit Thakur feels that it's a happy marriage between Indian television and Bollywood."The concept is a big leap forwardon television. It is a collaboration of content between Bollywood and TV and a win-win deal for both of us. While the movie is getting a good promotion through this series, we are getting good content and we know there is relevant audience for the show. Ekta had many stories in her mind, while she is presenting one on the silver screen; she gave us the opportunity to telecast other eight. The show is a thriller, folklore and the very title has a message that good always wins."
While the episodes are expensive to produce, the channel and BalajiTelefilms are sharing the cost since it's a promotional series for the Balaji movie.

The channel will also be promoting the show aggressively on the social media, wherein it will be interaction with its audiences.
