It combines romance with adventure by inviting participants to couple up on one island before sending them to another to test their dedication to the relationship.

Vijay Subramaniam, director of content at Amazon Prime Video India, said the show would “bring a new bold concept to the unscripted content space that will continue to reinvent the way customers consume content in India.”

Ram added: “In today’s age of dating apps, young couples are finding it increasingly difficult to deal with the problems of a committed relationship. Consequently, more and more youngsters are making stress-free life choices of self-love and self-growth.

“This generation is increasingly facing a dilemma of we vs me. Skulls & Roses magnifies both aspects of this dilemma as well as the consequences of their choices.”
