What is the story of the Vishkanya serial?
Hailing from India, Vishkanya tells the story of Aparajita, who has been brought up in abusive conditions and is unaware that she is a 'vishkanya'. She is not allowed to leave her house but still manages to fall in love with her neighbour, Malay.
After a lifetime of being cooped up at home, her mother eventually let her out to a party at the Mittal family mansion – to kill all those in attendance.
What is the meaning of Vishkanya?
The Vish kanya (Sanskrit विष -कन्या) directly translates into "Poison girl." They are mythological beings, usually young women, who were used as assassins. Their blood is poisonous to other humans, and, according to some Hindu mythology, they can kill a person by just looking at them.
How is a Vishkanya made?
The myth states that girls were made poisonous by exposing them to low-intensity poison at a very young age. Many died, but those who developed an immunity to the poison would survive. However, the body fluids of these girls would be "poisoned", and sexual contact becomes lethal to other humans.
This series brings to life the story of Aparajita. Let us find out more about the cast and characters in the latest instalment of this supernatural drama.
