'Mahabharat' once again!
The new Mahabharat is all set to storm the small screen with its splendor and visuals effects. The magnum opus is gearing for a big start as it premieres on September 16, but it wasn’t a smooth sail for the producers to bring the show on TV.
Produced by Siddharth Kumar Tewary, the show’s original concept is a brainchild of Star Plus channel itself. The show has been in the making for quite some time and has several known artists and actors involved in it. The veteran Rajit Kapur was roped in as the acting coach for the ensemble star cast that features the likes of Puneet Issar, Sayantani Ghosh and Saurabh Jain. Still, to present a grand epic like Mahabharat on a bigger canvas was a herculean task. Thus the ace set designer Omung Kumar was approached for the lavish sets. Also, the Oscar-winner costume designer Bhanu Athaiya has guided the team on the costumes.
Now, what matters the most for the audiences is the cast of the new Mahabharat. You have already been introduced to Krishna in the promos. Yes, Saurabh Jain, the famous Lord Vishnu of Mahadev plays Lord Krishna in the serial. The young TV buffs are also happy to see the handsome Shaheer Sheikh as Arjun. The former Disney actor Shaheer, was last seen in Navya, and now he is making a comeback on TV with Mahabharat.
The bong beauty Sayantani Ghosh will be shown as the ambitious Satyavati, and Ratan Rajput too returns to the small screen with the role of Princess Amba.
A lot of hard work, effort, detailing and creativity have gone in presenting this epic saga, and it’s more than evident in the promos of Mahabharat that has caught the fancy of viewers. Thus, the buzz is huge. Get to know who plays whom in the serial.
