Star Bharat brings RadhaKrishn – a paean to eternal, unconditional love
The folklore of Radha & Krishn is steeped in deep spirituality. Their eternal union has stood the test of time as a symbol of true, selfless love. Marking the beginning of the festive season Star Bharat presents, RadhaKrishn, a timeless narrative of one of most celebrated love sagas in Indian culture set to launch on 1st October at 9 pm. Commemorating this endeavor, the entire ‘RadhaKrishn’ cast and crew today gathered to celebrate the launch of the show in the holy land of Vrindavan.
RadhaKrishn is an exemplary journey which will allow audiences far and wide, from all walks of life, to experience, understand, and learn the true meaning of love. It will appeal to every generation of viewers through its creative story-telling, musical score, choreography, and visuals. The magnum opus is produced by Siddharth Kumar Tewary under the umbrella of Swastik Productions. Renowned music director Surya Raj Kamal’s original and soulful compositions add to the charm. As testimony to this, the first glimpse of the show – the captivating music video - went massively viral, being shared by millions across the country to wish one another for Janmashtami.
The grandeur of the show comes from the 5 sets that have been created for each world - Golok, Vrindavan, Gokul, Barsana and Kans Mahal - after in-depth research, to present RadhaKrishn’s journey against a truly enchanting backdrop. Ace Bollywood choreographer, Chinni Prakash along with his wife Rekha Chinni Prakash add to this mesmerizing musical journey through traditional dances and Raas Leela, curated to depict the enriching experiences and emotions of love. With such opulence, the performances will undoubtedly be instrumental in displaying the scale of the show.
The show features Sumedh Mudgalkar as Krishn and Mallika Singh as Radha. The visuals of Radha adorned with flower garlands against a picturesque landscape are magical and mesmerizing. Her enchanting love story with Krishn has been an inspiration to many poets and storytellers alike. Talented actor Gavie Chahal plays the role of Nand, actress Reena Kapoor will be seen as Yashoda, and actor Arpit Ranka portrays the powerful and evil King Kans.
Commenting on the launch of the show, the spokesperson of the channel said, “RadhaKrishn is a perfect blend of the channel’s philosophy of rootedness in Indian culture and tradition while engaging the audience with a story that has never been seen before in this space. Star Bharat constantly strives to provide an exciting and diverse portfolio in ‘family-viewing’ experiences. RadhaKrishn, with its appealing aesthetic will inspire positivity this festive season. The scale of RadhaKrishn will redefine television content and set the bar higher.”
The producer Siddharth Kumar Tewary expresses his excitement for RadhaKrishn saying, “RadhaKrishn has been one of the most creatively challenging yet rewarding experiences for me and it gives me immense satisfaction to present this show to viewers. We have dedicated years of research towards creating this epic love saga that is also a visual masterpiece and we hope to delight our viewers.
To complement the grandeur of this love saga, Star Bharat will showcase the immortal representation of RadhaKrishn’s love – Krishn’s Bansuri. The love that Krishn and Radha shared is incomplete without the Bansuri - whenever Krishn would play it, Radha would find herself completely drawn to him. To celebrate RadhaKrishn’s love through this symbol, Star Bharat will initiate a first of its kind – “Bansuri Yatra”- across 100+ towns and cities, through the heartland of the country, for all to see. The 10-foot, golden Bansuri, adorned with peacock feathers, will begin its journey at the birthplace of Krishn where it will be blessed by 151 pujaaris, after which it will provide an immersive consumer experience to those in its path; transporting one back to the era of RadhaKrishn. The Bansuri was unveiled today by the cast in Vrindavan, kick-starting the auspicious journey of RadhaKrishn.
Witness the colourful journey of RadhaKrishn every Monday to Saturday at 9 pm from 1st October on Star Bharat!
