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?

Rakshanda KhanEkta 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 BhanushaliJai 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.

    I did not like the first episode of Mahabharat. The dress code was not as per past … acting of draupadi was poor..

  6. Sita says:

    The first episode of Mahabharat was not so good. I didn’t like the dress code, the set and the dialogs.

    Ekta please look to :-the makeup of Ganpati & the dress of Bhishma is always white .The dress Pandavas are not black but colourful. Show the real water not the computerizes.In the book of Mahabharata see how it is express, so good to read, I expect the same from you.


  14. samkarma says:

    ekta u r the queen of serials ….i thought this Mahabharat would be diff …i thought u have made enough money to make good stuff for tv…but sorry u disappointed me….its looks like a masala serial which is Pathetic…u need to open ur horizion.. shooting on hd doesn’t mean that u can achieve everything…wearing good costumes doesn’t mean u had it all….there is a vision to it camera angles and specially depth of field which i am sorry ur director and dop no idea of … making good set but lighting atrocious….mahabharat looks like chota bharat…and plz for god sake…ur actors tone on delivering dialogues in a punjabi tone is mind blowing…..i know money is eveything today but after earning..u can give some back to the quality/medium who made u /got u to that stage…level of being a queen….which v all r proud of…..

  25. Rakesh B says:


    The costume for all characters is not good. I think right word is “RUBBISH”

  26. Ekta Kapoor says:

    The show is slated to be a daily and will be aired on prime time
    from Monday to Thursday.
    This change of schedule has taken place because Balaji Telefilms
    are way ahead of their deadline and have already built up a
    huge bank of episodes.

  27. ashvini says:

    I just want to suggest Ekta that , Plz see B.R. Chopra’s Mahabharat it will help u

  28. Hemant Arya says:

    hello Ekta
    going gud…..main chrecter of mahabharat Krishna is not looking gud..he looks more mature.even all pandava and kauravs also.
    i think u dont no..whn krishna killed to kans ,he was just 11-12 yr old..but here he looked 24-25 yr…

    ‘makhhan chori’ episode not suit with his age. he shoud be just 7-8 yr.

  29. Deepika says:

    This really needs work. Why are the Pandavas wearing black and absolutely no jewels? Even the NDTV Ramayan was better than this. No one looks royal in this serial and everyone looks way too modernized and greek. All in all, this Mahabharat serial is a definite don’t watch.

  30. Deepika says:

    It doesn’t even compare with B.R. Chopra’s Mahabharat, which was absolutely wonderful by the way! This one is definitely not good! No glamor, no beauty, mediocre actors, and bad acting! I especially don’t like the Shakuni and Bhishma actors! They didn’t fit their role at all!

  37. Ranbir Singh says:

    Hi Ekta !

    I Earlier watched your Kyunki……But when bored of it, I took a long rest. Then it came you with your Gorgeous MAHABHARAT. I m totally in love with it. The magic of typical Ekta si back again with a new taste. Your casting is fabulous. Every actor seems to be made for his/her character. Sakshi is the one of tele queens I’ve always been loving. she is totally Ganga. Ronit looks great with 6 pack. Makrand is Superb. Ravee & Rakshanda are also in a new version. Chetan & Aryan are unexpectedly looking gr8. It is one of your historical Serial after the Hum paanch, Itehaas, Kyunki…. & Kahaani……… Carry On . I m always ready to watch when u give smthng new.

  38. Neha says:

    This is the best Ekta serial I’ve watched!! Uma Shanker, Mrunal Jain, and the actor who’s playing Drona are excellent!! But I must commend her on her decision to replace Harshad Chopra with Sid Makkar. Initially, being a Harshad fan, I was mad at her for doing this. But when I saw Sid….I was floored!!! He’s such a good actor!!!

  39. kulsum choudhary says:

    ekta u have got super star cast……….

  40. soni says:

    Regarding star cast : Mrunal Jain who plays the role of krishna has to be replaced. He looks sick and does not suit the role of krishna. Nitish Bharadwaj was perfect . I wonder from where Ekta Kapoor got a wierd idea of selecting Mrunal Jain for the role of krisha. Sickening. And Am no more interested in watching Kahaani Hamarey Mahabharat Ki . I wish hussein had played the role of Krishna. Hussein is extremely charming. Hussein is cute. Hussein should have been cast in the role of Krishna. Hussein will suit the role .
