Mumbai: Aiming to give audiences goosebumps, a new television reality show is exploring the dreaded paranormal phenomena of ghosts.
MTV`s latest show `MTV Girls Night Out`, which airs from today, will have young women left all alone in a haunted location for an entire night to brave the unknown.
Being produced by Miditech, the 13-part hair-raising series is hosted by daredevil VJ Rannvijay.
"With no crew, no phone lines and no connection with the outside world, but under the constant vigil of strategically placed cameras, the contestant will be a given a series of tasks to complete during the night," Rannvijay said.
After assessing their performances, one girl will be elected the most fearless of them all and take home Rs five lakhs.
To add scientific and logical credence, paranormal investigators Gaurav Tiwari and Akanksha Kaushik from the
Paranormal Organisation of India, have also been deployed.
"The investigators will analyse the situation and will also give the participants a lowdown on the gruesome history of the haunted place," Niret Alva, executive chairman of Miditech told reporters.
The investigations will be done with the support of modern equipments like K2 meters, EMF readers, IR thermometers, night vision HD cameras and various softwares for analysis of the haunted locations.
Is the show trying to prove the existence of ghosts?
"No, our aim is not to prove or deny the existence of any supernatural, but to give participants the opportunity to check their fear in a scary situation," he said.
From Imagine TV`s `Raaz Pichchle Janam Ka` and `The Chair` at UTV Bindass, channels are now trying to delve deep into the supernatural realm.
