Bhoot Aaya was an Indian drama documentary television series created by Akashdeep Sabir and directed by Ayush Raina for Sony Entertainment Television India and Sony Entertainment Television Asia. Its central plot was based on paranormal experiences narrated by the real victims. Earlier the series was scheduled to telecast on September 29, 2013. But it was delayed, and the series premiered on October 13, 2013, which aired weekly on every Sunday at 11 PM IST. The show was directed by Ayush Raina who also directed Horror Story (a Bollywood 2013 film), and was co-produced by Kaishav Arora. The air time of the series was half an hour, with an average of 30 minutes of running time. The series ended on 6 April 2014. There were 23 episodes in total.
No episodes were aired on January 26, 2014, February 16, 2014 and 20 March 2014 due to "59th Idea Filmfare Awards 2013", Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (a 2013 Bollywood film) and Boogie Woogie Kids Championship Grand Finale respectively.
Bhoot Aaya attempted to explore the unexplained forces of the dark world and their encounters with humans. It is based on human brain psychology; whether the belief in ghosts is innate or not. The show depicted real life, spine chilling experiences of ordinary people. Each episode of Bhoot Aaya introduced Gaurav Tiwari and other experts from Indian Paranormal Society to explain the reasons behind such unexplained events.
Throughout the globe, Bhoot Aaya has received mostly mixed critical reception. The series has not entertained the viewers so much.
In Pakistan, the show airs on Geo Entertainment.
