Ekta Kapoor is full busy these days in making “Mahabharat” for 9X. She has assembled all her fav TV Men to star in this Balaji Magnum Opus. Now, she is all set to make Ronit Roy, Hiten and Chetan beefier with more muscle to fit their respective characters in Mahabharat.
She has roped in Prashant (…the guy that gave Shahrukh Khan 6 pack abs in flat 4 months). Prashan gets 2 months to give more muscles to Ekta’s men to get ready for Mahabharat.
Kiran Karmarkar, best known as Om of “Kahani Ghar Ghar Kii” (KGGK)” also joined the cast. He will play King Shantanu in the show.
In the serial, once again Kiran will share the screen space with his co-star Sakshi Tanwar, better known as Parvati of “Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki” who will play Ganga, his wife in it. Manish Malhotra has designed her costumes as you see above. He has also designed costumes for her in Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki when she played the role of Janki Devi. That look was highly appreciated by viewers.
Uma Shanker will be playing the role of Yudhistir. The role of Nakul will be portrayed by Deepak Sandhu .
Watch-out for new age Mahabharat featuring your fav TV men with ripped muscles and toned bodies. Its full Ekta Mahabharat…
Ekta Kapoor’s magnus opus Mahabharat on channel 9X is in huge planning stage. All the Balaji royalist are being scanned to ascertain who fits where.
Ekta Kapoor’s very close and loved real life couple Gauri and Hiten Tejwani seems to be getting in scheme of things.
Buzz was that Gauri Tejwani will play Draupadi in Ekta’s Mahabharat. Yeah, her look cute and innocent looks should fit the character. But later Gauri refused to be a part of Mahabharat. And finally Anita Hasnandani bagged it.
Gauri’s real life hubby Hiten isn’t far behind. He plays Karan in this reloaded Mahabharat. He is doing hard work to fit in the character.
Along with Ronit Roy and Chetan Hansraj, he is sweating it out in gym to look beefy in the character. It is not easy being an actor, right guys?
Ekta Kapoor’s Mahabharat cast is finally getting settled. Latest to join Mahabharat clan is glam girl Rakshanda Khan.
She plays character of Amba in Ekta Kapoor’s Mahabharat. So, why did she chose this role? Here are two reasons -
“…Firstly, I got a chance to work with Ronit Roy again. Ronit plays Bheeshma Pitamah in Mahabharat and I have most of my scenes with him.”
OHHK… where is Ronit’s wife? Be carefull! And Second reason is “… I got a chance to act in a mythological, which doesn’t come one’s way often.”
Yeah, bang on Rakshanda. Manish Malhotra is doing constumes for her.. hope he remembers it is a mythological serial and not a Karan Johar movie! No wonder he has done a great job.
Here is Mr Bajaj, ah sorry Ronit Roy as Bheeshma Pitamaha from Ekta Kapoor’s Mahabharat on 9x. Long hair is ok, this is so common in epic series. Did you notice lack of glitter and glitz? Probably they want to keep things subtle and classy (hopefully!).
As usual Ronit look good in this avatar, as far acting is concerned – he cant go bad in that front. So did you like Ronit Roy’s Bheeshma Pitamaha AVATAR?
Previously we have seen Chetan Hansraj and Aryan Vaid in action pose from this upcoming Mahabharat Saga. As reported earlier, it seems Ronit Roy has hit gym with vengence as other male stars from this epic.
Aryan Vaid is playing the role of Duriahdhan…
Jatin Shah, better known as Raunak of Kasturi, is playing the role of Shehdev, one of the pandavas.
Harshad Chopra, better known as Prem of “Kis Desh Mai Hai Mera Dil” is also a part of Ekta’s Mahabharat. He is playing the role of Arjun.
Jai Bhanushali (see the pic, if you don’t know him!) is calling quit to his role in Star Plus serial Kayamath.
He feels their is nothing more left in the show for him.
Hmm.. suddenly show looks stale to him? Couldn’t he offer his creative juice?
Here is more, besides saying bye bye to this Ekta Kapoor’s show, he even refused to be part of Ekta Kapoor’s Mahabharat on 9x.
Why? He is not un-comfortable wearing props and tinnie winnie dresses – yeah he is no big muscle guy either… hehehehe
Bhanu bhaiya adds… he has lot of movie and TV show offers, but havn’t said YES to anyone. Why? only he would know… probably he is unconformatable doing either of it.
Balaji has roped in actress Ravee Gupta to play the role of Satyavati in the epic. Confirming the news, Ravee says, “It is a very good show with the who’s who of the television industry in it. Besides, it has also given me a chance to work with Ekta and Balaji again after four years. My last show with Balaji was Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.” Incidentally, the actress is playing wife to Kiran Om Karmarkar who is playing Shantanu in the K-queen’s version of the epic.
This is the second time that Ravee will be featured in an epic. Earlier she had essayed the role of Ravan’s mother in Ravan on Zee.
