Star Bharat to launch ‘Jag Jaanani Maa Vaishnodevi’
Star Bharat is thrilled to announce its second mammoth mythological offering ‘Jag Jaanani Maa Vaishnodevi – Kahani Matarani Ki’. The show, which is produced by Rashmi Sharma Telefilms, narrates the untold story of Maa Vaishno Devi, from the onset of her journey on earth as a child to her becoming Maa Vaishno Devi, our universal mother as she is now acknowledged. The show is scheduled to premiere on September 30th and will air daily - Monday to Saturday at 9: 30pm.
Jag Jaanani Maa Vaishnodevi – Kahani Matarani Ki – is a story set in mythology. It commences in the background of the end of Devasur Sangram – the biggest war and how the Asurs (demons) were seeking a safe haven on earth. A troubled Bhudevi seeks help from Lord Vishnu. When Mahadev gets to know of her predicament he says the only solution is the destruction of prithvi. At this point, Maa Lakshmi, Maa Kali and Maa Saraswati come forward to stop Mahadev and propose to combine their powers - – a new force who would strive to save humanity in her role as an intermediary and help the crucial circumstance that they were faced with. Thus, was born Vaishnavi (the Shakti of Vishnu), the daughter of King Ratnakar Sagar.
The riveting mythological drama series very powerfully outlines how Maa Vaishno Devi changes people’s lives even in her childhood by addressing grave problems of pain, hunger and poverty that touches her soul. And as she grows up, how she fights every battle she faces in order to achieve her higher purpose and how she strives to end Paap (the evil in the world) and not the Paapi (the sinner).
