India's greatest epic will witness some high drama in the coming weeks. In the first week of October, the audience gets to see the grown up Pandavas and Kauravas in Kahaani Hamaarey Mahaabhaarat Ki on 9X.
As the adolescent boys become men, the drama in their lives begins to unfold. The high points of the great epic story, which is a roller-coaster ride of relationships, power, politics, emotions and values, will become extremely strong. A truly spectacular 'Hastinapur' set, spread over two acres of land, has been erected after months of work. Several other sets too have been created. Not only this, the show has some more high points, them being ; Radha and Krishna's separation, Kans Vadh, the boys growing up, Karan's entry, closeness between Dronacharya and Arjun.
And starting 22nd September, with the telecast of Mahabharat in the UK , the GEC 9X adds another feather to its cap. The show will air every Monday to Thursday at 10 pm with English subtitles. Speaking about this venture, Indrani Mukerjea, Founder & CEO, INX Media says, "Mahaabhaarat, arguably the greatest epic of all times, is at the root of India's culture, and we are delighted to bring Kahaani Hamaaray MAHAABHAARAT Ki to the UK. Considering its global relevance, 9X will air the series with English subtitles and we are confident that English as well as Hindi speaking audiences will enjoy this magnificent story."
Ekta Kapoor, Creative Director of Balaji Telefilms says, "Although Mahaabhaarat as a story is thousands of years old, it is very applicable and relevant to today's day and age. Kahaani Hamaaray MAHAABHAARAT Ki has been made for a wider audience ï¿½ not just for Indians living in India but all over the world, and I am delighted that 9X is taking this great epic story to TV viewers in the UK. This show really features the biggest television stars in the greatest drama ever, and has been produced with the best of technique and grandeur that Television as a medium allows today. I am sure that not just Indians but others too in the UK will like it."
