Star India ropes in Devdutt Patnaik as Chief Consultant for Mahabharat
Biggest challenge for anyone now-a-days is to relate Indian mythology with the current scenario. The one who can really make this task easy is renowned author Devdutt Patnaik. His understanding on the subject and the fact that he has researched and written innumerable books on Indian Mythology and their significance in modern day’s life makes him the apt choice for Siddharth Kumar Tewary to get on board for Star Plus’ Mahabharat.
Devdutt is all set to make his TV debut, of course off-screen with the costliest TV show in making, Mahabharat. He is associated with the show as Chief Consultant and has been a guiding light on the project. He delightedly says, “Star Plus’ Mahabharat will be presented systematically to facilitate easy comprehension of various characters. The style is unique and will be a break from standard visual formats.”
Asking him on the epic’s relativity in today’s scenario, he said, “All incidents happening these days have replication of some or the other illustration from Mahabharat. It’s just not a book but an entire world in it. I’m sure Star Plus’ Mahabharat will procure eyeballs of younger audience as they’ll relate to it big time.”
