The upcoming ZEE5 Original series Kailasapuram has been much awaited, after the success of the Amala Akkineni-starrer High Priestess. Kailasapuram, just like its name, is based on true events happening in this small township in Vishakapatnam. Before you sit down to binge-watch the seven-episode series, we walk you through its lead characters.
Meet Shiva Shanker, a character played by actor Mohit Pedada. The ‘hero’ of Kailasapuram and the victim of substance addiction. Shiva is the leader, wherever he goes people follow him. An intermediate student, Shiva gets into the dirty web of drug peddling. Not by choice, he does it for pocket money that pays well enough to maintain his image of a hero. He is rebellious and strong but he also turns caring with time.
