Mythological shows are the latest trend on TV and every channel has some or the other mythological show on their programming list. After Shani, Mahakali, Param Avtaar Shri Krishna and Vignaharta Ganesha, there is a new mythological show called Radha Krishna on the anvil. It will be launched on Star Bharat next month. Life Ok will be revamped from September and will have a couple of mythological shows. There will be Mahadev season two and Radha Krishna. ‘Radha Krishna’ will star Madirakshi Mundle and Siddharth Arora as Radha and Krishna. The show will also have Pooja Banerjee playing Virta in the show. The actors have already started shoot for this show from this week in Umargaon Gujarat.
This was the show that was suppose to come on Zee TV as ‘Radha Krishna Ek Alokik Prem Gaatha’ in 2016. In fact, the promo of the show also went on air. Then, there was a change of concept and it got shelved. Later, the producers took the concept to Star Network and they commissioned it. Initially, the show was passed for Star Plus but later on it was shifted to Star Bhaarat as Life Ok was undergoing a makeover. The show is basically the story of the eternal bond of Radha and Krishna. It will be told from the perspective of Radharani. The love story of Radha-Krishna is a divine one that has engrossed poets, painters, and musicians alike. The show will present the story of these two pious lovers who never got married but they are worshiped in temples across the world. Unlike the other mythological shows, this one will focus on only Radha and Krishna. There is also another show on & TV called ‘Paramavtaar Shri Krishna ‘ that basically chronicles Krishna’s life and Radha is just a chapter.
After playing Sita in ‘Siya Ke Ram’ Madirakshi will be seen in another mythological character. She just wrapped up ‘Jaat Ki Jugni’ on Sony TV and bagged this show within a month. The makers liked her as Sita and felt she would fit the bill perfectly. Siddharth Arora is making a comeback after a long time after Meri Saasu Maa on ZEE TV. This is the not the first time Siddharth is playing Krishna. He had played the part in ‘Kishan Kanhaiya’ on Sab TV. The makers felt he looks like the God the best. Siddharth has done shows like ‘Mukti Bandhan’, ‘Doli Armano Ki’ and ‘Na Bole Tum Maine Kuch Kaha’ but is yet to come into the limelight. Pooja Banerjee is playing the third angle in the love story. She has an angelic look in the show. Pooja was last seen in Chandra Nandini as the Vishkanya.
Radha Krishna is produced by Swastik Productions who are already making Shani, Mahakali, Shankar Jai Kishan and Porus on TV.
