The dramatic magnum opus show Mahabharat (Swastik Productions) on Star Plus is all set to bid farewell. Yes, the show that started off last year will air its final episode on 10 August.
Mahabharat, the ambitious project of producer Siddharth Kumar Tewary, started off with comparisons being made with BR Chopra’s yesteryear Mahabharat. But with the perfect cast and some superb performances, the actors managed to shrug off all burden and stood up high with the show gaining a huge popularity.
Added to that the creative team has been lauded time and again for churning out a beautifully written script for a concept that has been known for years.
The show also managed to make hero out of actors like Saurabh Raaj Jain (Krishna), Shaheer Sheikh (Arjun), Arpit Ranka (Duryodhan), Arav Chowdharry (Bhism Pitamah), Paras Arora (Abhimanyu), Pooja Sharma (Draupadi) among a lot many more.
The epic which is currently airing the last league of the historical Kurukshatera war will air its final episode on 10 August (Sunday) with a final hour long maha episode.
Shares a source, “The production and channel decided on giving the viewers a special last treat and thus this maha episode. It will be the culmination episode and quite a grand one. The cast will be shooting its last episode tentatively on 5 August.”
“We have also planned a wrap up party on the day where the whole team will watch the last episode and then party hard to celebrate our hard work and success,” informs an actor from the show.
We called and even sent a text message to Producer Siddharth, but he did not revert.
Now if there is an end, there is always a beginning. Well, as earlier informed by us, Sukesh Motwani’s Nisha Aur Uske Cousins will take Mahabharat’s 8 .30pm slot from 11 August.
Sukesh too did not respond to our calls and messages.
