&TV set to premier the mega show on 19th June and airs every Monday – Friday at 8.30 pm
Mumbai: The by lanes of Gokul still reminisce the naughtiness and enchanting ways of Krishna! It’s in this very town that Krishna stole makhan (butter) from most houses and shared it with his friends. But when confronted by his mother he never admitted the truth and had the whole town on its toes with his naughtiness. Yet this makhanchor was admired, loved and followed by one and all. But how did this little Kanha came to be worshiped as Paramavatar Shri Krishna? While we may have heard his stories before, do we know why did Krishna take birth as the 8th child of Devaki? Why did he steal makhan from various households? Why did he get the whole of Gokul to start worshipping Gowardhan Parvath instead of Indra dev? &TV answers many such questions and unfolds the stories of this Gokul ke Nandlal who came to be revered as Lord Shri Krishna in the magnum opus Paramavatar Shri Krishna. Produced by Peninsula Pictures, the show premieres on 19th June and will air every Monday – Friday at 8.30 pm only on &TV.
Speaking about the show, Rajesh Iyer – Business Head, &TV said, “As a genre, mythology, has the capability of breaking through various demographic barriers. The stories of Krishna have always been engaging and largely inspirational. Paramavatar Shri Krishna will unfold the life of Lord Krishna in a manner where the audience will witness how he became the agent of change and brought about a revolution. We have all grown up hearing his stories and our show will further demystify his leel as and showcase the making of a super hero.”
A superhero in his own right, Krishna defied norms and charted out a new way of life. Since a young age, Krishna stunned his elders with profound philosophy and actions. Maan ke dekho mahima hai, dhyan se dekho leela hai… The show Paramavatar Shri Krishna will not only highlight different facets of Krishna’s life but also depict the truest manifestation of making of a superhero. An avatar of Lord Vishnu, Krishna not only put an end to the evil Kans’ tyranny but revolutionised the outlook of people. His teachings have been so impactful that they are relevant in today’s times as well.
With lavish sets, intricate costumes and jewellery and advanced specials effects, the show promises to be a visual delight! The stellar ensemble cast will see the talented 4-year-old child artist, Nirnay Samadhiya essay the role of the natkhat kanhaiya. While the beautiful Gungun Uprari will play Yashodha, the talented Sachin Shroff will play Nand Baba. Joining them will be Neha Sargam asLakshmi, Vishal Karwal as Vishnu, Gulki Joshi as Devaki, Chaitanya Chaudhary as Vasudev and Manish Wadhwa as Kans.
