Presenting a notable impersonation of Betaal’s nostalgic look, the all-white entity with wispy haze for legs will be seen tied to the great king Vikramaditya and floating in the air. Peninsula Pictures, headed by Alind Srivastava and Nissar Parvez along with writer and creative producer of the show, CL Saini are the creative minds behind this magnum opus.

At that time, I used to fear Betaal yet was somehow attracted to his unique style. From fearing him to now playing his role is nothing but a cosmic intervention.”
