Plot edit

Rudra Srivastava (Arunoday Singh), a senior inspector of Uttarakhand Police is lured into kidnapping a young girl named Anusha (Monica Chaudhary), at her step-mother (Mahie Gill)'s request. The plot begins as a simple plan to extort money in exchange for Anusha. This series revolves around crime, thriller, mystery, and suspense with action and comedy sequences.

Apharan is based on the 70s era with the feeling of nostalgia and great suspense and mystery. The story follows a cop 'Rudra' who was falsely accused and ends up in jail for 3 years. The plot is all about the mystery of the murder of a kidnapped girl.

Season 2 revolves around Rudra navigating his professional duties with his personal life at stake. To find a cure for his wife's addiction, the RAW sends the formidable cop to Serbia to track down and capture Vikram Bahadur Singh, or VBS, a wanted criminal responsible for the death of 9 Indian RAW agents in one month.
