Mumbai: In its brand new offering StarPlus presents KarnSangini a show that sight sees an unexplored facet of mythology. The tale of Mahabharata is often associated with bravery, virtues, politics and greed, but this year, the spotlight will be on pure, divine, courageous love.
StarPlus raises the curtains on a brand new genre – mytho – romance – with Shashi and Sumeet Mittal’s ‘KarnSangini’. It narrates the never-seen-before tale of a royal princess Uruvi who chose her love and stood by it against all odds.
The princess of the prosperous kingdom of Pukhya is promised by her mother to Kunti for her son, warrior prince of the Pandavas – Arjun. However, things change with the arrival of Karn, the man with a golden armour, shiny hair and daunting personality who challenges the supremely skilled combatant Arjun. Son of a charioteer, Karn leaves everyone astonished with his moves, but Uruvi loses her heart out to him at his very first glance. Little did she know that in the path to get her man, she would have to lose everything that she has.
Talking about their new show, Producer & Writer Shashi Mittal says, “We are glad to associate with StarPlus yet again, this time with KarnSangini. The show is extremely special to all of us as it brings to light a new narrative of an epic like Mahabharata. Love triangles always call for a good narrative and we thought why not add some fiction and set one such triangle in the backdrop of the epic Kurukshetra war? KarnSangini is the untold tale of Karn and his Sangini, Uruvi and showcases a love story that transcends all class and social barriers. It’s a show that proves love triumphs over all odds!”
Get ready to witness an epic love triangle set in 10th Century BC with KarnSangini, a fictional story inspired by Kavita Kane’s famous book Karna’s Wife: The Outcast’s Queen. Watch as the courageous Uruvi challenges the caste system of the society; leaves all the luxuries and privileges of a royal life and accepts a humble living just to be with the man she loved.
The show embraces a stellar star cast – Tejaswi Prakash Wayangankar, Aashim Gulati, Kinshuk Vaidya, Sayantani Ghosh, Madirakshi Mundle and Paras Chhabra in prominent roles.What happens when a princess chooses to become an outcast queen?
