Actor Ashish Sharma to showcase the human side to the Lord in Siya Ke Ram

Ashish Sharma, Actor Ashish Sharma, Actor Ashish Sharma new show, Siya Ke Ram, Siya Ke Ram Ashish Sharma, Star plus,
After Arun Govil and Gurmeet Choudhary, it is actor Ashish Sharma's turn to play God. And not just any - starting November 16, Sharma will don the role of Lord Ram on Star Plus' new mythology line-up, Siya Ke Ram. That's right, it is Sita who will be the prime focus of the show.

"Women will relate to Sita in more ways than one. She is multi-faceted and a woman of substance. Siya Ke Ram is the story of Sita and Ram as two equally strong individuals and I feel Ramayan is as much as Sita's journey as it is Ram's," says Sharma, his show lending a new dimension to women empowerment. As for him, it was a yes from the beginning. The moment he was offered the show, he was game because mythology as a theme provides a huge reach and range for an actor to enjoy'.

He agrees this is a story almost everyone in India has grown up on. Timeless and engaging, it is an inherent part of the Indian culture. Although this lad from Jaipur has grown up watching Govil play god, Sharma points out the new treatment of the story. "Ram's godly aspect has always overshadowed the manushya avatar', his human side. Our show will journey with Ram from being a warrior prince to Lord Ram."

Conceptualised by Aniruddh Pathak who brought Lord Shiva's legend to television through Mahadev, Siya Ke Ram has been envisioned and created by renowned writers like Anand Neelakantan (author of Asura and Ajaya), Subrat Sinha along with creative consultant Devdutt Pattanaik, the man who has redefined mythology for Indians today.

Sharma, who has made his mark in shows like Gunaahon Ka Devta, Rangrasiya, Chandragupta Maurya, etc and acted in Dibakar Banerjee's Love, Sex Aur Dokha, underwent seven months of training to prep up for this epic saga.

"I had to get more muscular to play a warrior prince, grow my hair, practice martial arts for the action scenes. I even read Tulsidas's Ramayan to understand the Lord more," he adds.

Featuring Madirakshi as Sita, the other actors include Dalip Tahhil as Dashrath, Bijay Anand as Janak, Grusha Kapoor as Kaikeyi and Karan Suchak as Lakshman.

Courtesy his writer father Ashwini Sharma, the actor is a fan of literary works, and feels Ramayan, too, is a piece of literature everyone must know. "If you ask me, I would love to see works like Sharat Chandra Chatterjee's Badi Didi, Munshi Premchand's Nirmala and Phanishwar Nath Renu's Maila Anchal come alive on small screen," says Sharma, who has been writing and directing, too. Recently, he directed 12 episodes of MTV web series, Saturday Night, Alright. "I would love to get behind the scenes, direct and write something that has a strong literary base for I feel people need to reconnect with their roots and literature that comes out of it, but right now, it is Siya Ke Ram," he says.

Familiarity breeds challenges


Mona

Ashish Sharma is a multifaceted guy. Graduate in fashion technology, this painter and writer from Jaipur pursued theatre and landed in the city of dreams, Mumbai, to fulfil his dream to be an actor.

Trained at Anupam Kher School of Acting, he had his fair stint of struggle; no, he did not sleep on platforms but did face rejections for close to three years before work came his way.

Seen as Chandragupta Maurya and also the winner of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7, he would, now, woo the audience as the maryada puroshottam' in Siya Ke Ram.

In Chandigarh, on Tuesday, Ashish looked comfortable talking about his role in the magnum opus, comparisons drawn to Arun Govil and his take on Rama.

"It was something that I had never done on screen before. Preparing for the role was easy as well as tough. On one side, one could draw from Rama one has witnessed on stage, shows and adaptations. On the other hand, to pull off an image that's part and parcel of society comes with a huge challenge," admits Ashish.

Comparisons with Ramanand Sagar's Ramyana keep popping and Ashish silences the critics, "Even I grew up watching that and am a huge fan. We hope that we are able to create the magic that it did."

Though this story is told from the perspective of Sita, the milestones remain the same. "It's a very well researched show and interestingly different scriptures have plenty of narration on Sita that has been overlooked in different renditions," shares Ashish, who admits being in awe of the queen who chose companionship of her husband in forest for 14 long years over luxuries that the palace life offered. "Little is known about Sita. As Janak's daughter she was exposed to literature and spirituality. And it was her call to go to vanvas with Ram sacrificing the lavish lifestyle as a queen."

The show charts Ram-Sita's journey right from their childhood and is largely based on Valmiki's Ramayana. What it differs in is not just the perspective from which it is told but also the presentation. While mythology shows have always been over the top and dramatic in presenting characters, this show takes a rather real take.

"I believe every decade a Ramayana should be made. There is so much that we can learn from our epics."

The show sets have been set up in Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad, it's also been extensively shot in West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Kerala and plans are to take the unit to Sri Lanka next with an aim to keep it real.

Ashish sure has enjoyed exploring something new but he is also aware of the fact that this role offers no room for error for here people' emotion and faith is at the stake.

Watch this story unfold on Star Plus, starting November 16, 8 pm.

STAR PLUS BRINGS TO YOU SIYA KE RAM THIS FESTIVE SEASON

Chandigarh, November 3, 2015. (Kulbir Singh Kalsi):-~Ashish Sharma who is playing the role of Rama was in Chandigarh to talk about the show and give the audience an insight into the world of Siya Ke Ram~

Sita-Ram have always been an intrinsic part of our culture and their story has influenced civilizations across the globe. However every single interpretation of this tale has been seen as the story of Ram, and Sita hardly finds a mention in these versions.

STAR Plus has always stood for compelling stories featuring strong, empowered and inspirational women protagonists. Now the channel is bringing to its viewers a fresh perspective on Ramayan, Siya Ke Ram where the story will be seen from Sita's perspective.

Known for his acting prowess across shows like Gunaahon Ka Devta, Rangrasiya, Chandragupta Maurya etc, popular TV actor Ashish Sharma will be seen playing the role of Maryada Purushottam Ram in this epic saga.

Talking about the show Ashish said, "Siya Ke Ram will showcase the Ramayana like never before. This time round, the audience will witness the epic love story of Sita and Ram from Sita's perspective. Sita was a strong women, she was someone who had an opinion which will often come out in the open. Our Sita is relevant to women today who will relate to her in more ways than one. She is multi-faceted and is a woman of substance. Siya Ke Ram is the story of Sita and Ram as two equally strong individuals."

"When one says Chandigarh, I can only remember the yummy food that you can eat here. Other than that, I have heard about the lovely points for sight seeing like the Rock Garden and Sukhna Lake. I am really looking forward to exploring the city and indulging in the Punjabi cuisine." said Ashish about his stay in Chandigarh for the day.

Featuring Madirakshi as Sita and Ashish Sharma as Ram, the show features a stellar supporting cast including veteran actor Dalip Tahhil as Dashrath, Bijay Anand as Janak, Grusha Kapoor as Kaikeyi and Karan Suchak as Lakshman. The show also stars renowned Marathi actress Bhargavi Chirmule as Sita's mother Sunaina, Snigdha Akolkar as Kaushalya and Sampada Vaze as Sumitra.

The show has been conceptualized by Aniruddh Pathak who brought Lord Shiva's legend to TV through Mahadev. Post the mega-success of Mahadev, Triangle Film Company and director Nikhil Sinha continue their successful association with STAR India as the makers of this magnum opus. The story has been envisioned and created by some of the most renowned writers in the country - The best-selling author of Asura and Ajaya, Anand Neelakantan and talented writer Subrat Sinha - along with creative consultant Devdutt Pattanaik- the man who has redefined mythology for Indians today. Art Director Chokas Bharadwaj's eye for detail has ensured that every element of the show truly brings alive the world of Siya Ke Ram. Siya Ke Ram has been shot in various locations across the length and breadth of India which add to the authenticity and grandeur of the show.

Siya Ke Ram starting 16th November 2015 at 8 pm only on STAR Plus!




Vertex Volt delivers high voltage VFX for Star Plus' Siya Ke Ram'




Who would have believed that visual effects shall go onto become an integral part of shows on the small screen, till a few years ago; but thanks to show creators and visionaries like Triangle Production's Nikhil Sinha this is now a reality.

Having made visually enigmatic shows for various broadcasters in the past like: Devo ke Dev Mahadev(Life OK!), Hatim (Life OK!), Maharakshak Aryan (Zee TV) and Mahavir Hanuman (Colors), Nikhil is now working with the numero uno channel in the GEC (Genral Entertainment Channel) space Star Plus on a magnum opus, which will retell the story of Ramayana through the eyes of Sita in Siya Ke Ram'.

But the only reason that Nikhil has been able to think of such outlandish concepts and ideas to work on is because of the confidence he has in one man, Hardik Gajjar, and his team of creative wizards at Vertex Volt.

Nikhil-Sinha-Hardik-Gajjar

The duo of Nikhil Sinha (L) and Hardik Gajjar (R) has given many a hit TV shows for the small screen


Vertex Volt is the brainchild of Nikhil and Hardik, which began operations in early 2011. The idea of setting up the VFX outfit was to help create content which would mesmerise and entertain audiences through rich storytelling without having to bother much about the cost of production or scale.

Speaking exclusively to TheGraphicSlate.com, Nikhil expounds: "Working on Mythological shows is always fun and challenging at the same time. And the freedom of creating a scale, or working on a big scale, and setting larger frames is something that gives me a kick."

Giving further insights into the storyline of Siya Ke Ram' Nikhil reveals that this version has never been told before, as most of the earlier adaptations of Ramayana on the small screen were based on the writings of the Tulsi Das's version of the mythology but for the first time Valmiki's version of the mythology will be seen on the small screen through this show.

Mountains

But, all this couldn't be possible without a team of experienced researchers to deal with the intricate details of the script and sketching out the characters in a different light. Leading the team of 8 researchers is none other than renowned historian Devdutt Pattnaik, including scholars who has done an in-depth research on Sita for 10 years.

So while all this covers the pre-production side of things, let's get into understanding how Vertex Volt is recreating rather rewriting history with Siya Ke Ram', which will premiere on Star Plus beginning 16 November at 8:00 pm replacing Tu Mera Hero'.

"We began fairly early on the project and worked on the pre-production with the director and the creative heads at the channel. We created numerous sketches, storyboards, character designs and concept arts to see how the eventual product will look and feel," expounds Hardik Gajjar, founder and VFX supervisor at Vertex Volt.

Landscape

He further adds that after the concept and designs were locked the team began work on various matte paintings for the magnificent looking backgrounds along with the 3D department working in tandem. The series, which is yet to begin, has roughly 15 minutes of CG in every episode and will involve loads of visual effects for creating set extensions; crowd multiplication and entirely 3D rendered shots and compositions to give the perfect desired output. The show currently has almost 80 per cent of the 170 man team at Vertex Volt burning the midnight oil and also requiring an upgraded pipeline to deliver the episodes swiftly.

"The 3D aerial shots were some of the most difficult ones which we have done for this show. The most challenging bit is to make these shots look as photorealistic as possible and leaving the viewers spellbound with mesmerising visuals." he expounds. "But the kind of response that we are getting from the first promo has given us the confidence that we are doing the right things and our work is certainly going to be loved by one and all."

What also allows Vertex Volt to experiment with different things on each of the shows that it has worked on till now is the trust and support that the team receives from Nikhil and the channels.

CG-Palace-1

But, what does Hardik have to say on the comparisons being made between the 3D aerial shots of Baahubali's city of Mahishmati and the ones which were seen in the recently released promos by Star Plus. "We have done such aerial shots earlier as well in our previous shows. So, I personally don't see where the comparison can be made. It had to look realistic and grand, and that was all that we had in mind while creating that shot." he responds.

Further sharing his views on how different is it to work on mythological shows as against daily soaps, Hardik explains: "Mythological shows are associated with the sentiments of the audience which we have to consider and showcase accordingly. Shows like Hatim and now Siya Ke Ram are in a completely different league when considering the level of visual effects involved; while just taking the examples of the ones mentioned above, the former is a sci-fi while the latter is based on mythology and the work involved in both is very different. But yes, we understand the genres and have worked on it earlier as well; so we are comfortable dealing with anything now."

"We believe in raising the bar each and every time to give quality output which a challenge even for us within the given amount of time. We always want to deliver the best VFX for the shows that we work on. So even Siya Ke Ram' is very special for us and the response so far is certainly overwhelming," Hardik ends.

CG-Palace-2

The show has been conceptualised by Aniruddh Pathak, who brought Lord Shiva's legend to TV through Mahadev and has renowned writers of the country like, Anand Neelakantan and Subrat Sinha on board as well.

Apart from the Ramoji City where a major chunk of the show will be shot, The cast and crew of the show will  also  shoot extensively in Lepakshi (Andhra Pradesh), Bhuj (Gujarat), Darjeeling (West Bengal), Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Telengana-Hyderabad and Mumbai. While the crew will also soon be travelling to Sri Lanka to get shots of Ravan's palace and use them as references for the show going forward.

The show that shall air six days a week - with the channel already having plans of doing over 300 episodes in all - the expectations from all stakeholders would be sky high. And boasting a stellar cast and crew, the show runners are confident of delivering to those expectations.

Actor to yogi and back

Nov 02, 2015 - Natasha Coutinho
Bijay Anand, the yoga teacher; (inset): Bijay Anand, the actor in a still from Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha

Bijay Anand, the yoga teacher; (inset): Bijay Anand, the actor in a still from Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha

Bijay Anand, who had a hit in his name with his very first film, chose to shift gears and seek solace in spirituality. He's facing the camera once again after 17 years only because the role is very close to his real persona

Remember the guy who dumps Kajol in Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha? We are talking about Bijay Anand, who had a slight brush with fame when the film turned out to be a blockbuster. But the actor, in spite of being able to jumpstart his Bollywood career on the right note, chose to change tracks. And no, he didn't turn producer or director or even a politician as is the fad. Bijay became a yogi and devoted his life to teaching yoga. But why are we talking about him now? Because he seems to have had a change of heart yet again, after 17 years, to turn back to acting. Bijay will be seen playing the role of Sita's father Janak in the television show Siya Ke Ram that will be launched soon.

Bijay did have to struggle to find fame in the industry but he says when he finally got it, the lure of it all was lost to him. "After Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha became a hit, I was offered 22 films as the main lead. But I just decided to quit the industry because my heart told me to do so. I have seen everything " poverty, struggle and I wanted to be known as an actor. But when I finally got that I realised it has no meaning," Bijay says. It all started when Bijay begun attending yoga conferences. "As my body was stiff, I felt yoga would be of help. When I was 36, I got arthritis and I was also diagnosed with high levels of cholesterol. That's when I discovered Kundalini yoga. If the soul is not happy, the body contracts all kinds of diseases. I realised my stiffness was because of my anger. Once I let it go out of my body, my body became flexible."

His real draw towards yoga came to him through the Sufi character Khidr, a mystical figure who is described in the Quran as a righteous servant of God. "The character is a metaphor for intuition. In one of my yoga sessions, it is through Khidr that realisation dawned on me to stop pursuing acting as a career. I have never questioned my intuition. It was a big decision to make. First of all, you spend so many years to become an actor, you have a silver jubilee hit in your name and then you simply quit the industry!"

Even though many years had passed since he had faced the camera, Bijay found that he could still do it with ease. "When I finally faced the camera for this show, it didn't feel like I was doing it after 17 years, seemed like just 17 minutes. It's in fact easier now, since I understand life better. Earlier I was acting, now I'm being myself on camera. I don't know if I will take up any more projects after this, it all depends on my friend Khidr," he says with a smile.

But why did he choose to return at all? "I'm a yoga teacher now " my dharma and karma is to teach people something important. I realised where I teach is not important, as long as I teach "be it in my class or on screen. Even my character Janak is a teacher. Teaching is in fact reaching out to people. The character is just what I am in life. When Nikhil Sinha (producer) approached me for the show he said to me, you are not an actor playing Janak, you are Janak, which is why I want you. I cannot think of anyone else for the part.' And I agreed."

Having conducted yoga sessions all over India and around the world through his organisation Anahata, Anand opines that the West is more accepting of yoga, while Indians don't value it as much as they should. "The West is so ready for yoga, so hungry for knowledge and philosophy. In the US if you put it on WhatsApp that Bijay Anand is teaching today and we have room for 40 people, 400 people sign up. In India not even 30 people will sign up. Indians think they know all about philosophy by watching Ramayana and Mahabharata on TV. Being born into that culture is all right but you have to make use of that knowledge. Two days ago I gave an interview to Yoga Journal, the biggest yoga magazine in Amsterdam, where I said, Europe is ready for yoga, Europe has seen the money, the maya. They want to be happy now and know that yoga and philosophy is the only way. Indians are busy fighting with their families over property matters but at some point we will have to get out of that trap.'"

By TellychakkarTeam
02 Nov 2015 02:14 PM

These days' actors put in a lot of efforts to get the perfect look for their role in the show. Be it putting on weight or losing, every actor goes to great lengths to get into the skin of the character. Ashish Sharma who is playing the pivotal role of Ram in Siya Ke Ram had to go through the same thing.

Ashish put on a significant amount of his time to get that perfect body for his next role. This is not all the actor also grew his hair to look appropriate for the character. Ashish, who has worked day in and day out for the look ensured that he doesn't go for any social gathering to disclose his new look.

In order to keep his look hidden and under wraps, the actor was also seen maintaining safe distance from social media and ensured not to post any pictures that would reveal his look to his fans. Every time he stepped out, he made sure he had his hair either tied up in a pony or a cap.

"I always take my work seriously hence I ensure that whatever that I do it has been done with perfection. I have been working out on my body to get the perfect look and have also grown my hair for the same. I am very excited about the role and looking forward to the reactions from the audience", commented Ashish Sharma.

Siya Ke Ram, all set to go on air on Star Plus, will narrate the story of Sita and Ram from Siya Ke Ram with a new perspective, that of Sita's. An unusual and a never seen before take on Ramayana, watch Siya Ke Ram from Sita's perspective.

I don't want to dwell on what went wrong with my marriage: Model and actress Sampada Vaze who was last seen doing shows like Hum-Tum and Komedy Ka King Kaun, was on a sabbatical following her marriage in 2007 to businessman Chris George. She later relocated to New York in 2008, but unfortunately things did not work out in her marriage and the couple decided to separate. They are now legally divorced. She said, "I want to keep my past behind and not talk about my divorce. I shifted back to Mumbai and want to make a fresh start. Right now, my sole aim is to focus on my work."Sampada will be seen essaying the role of Queen Sumitra (King Dashrath's wife) in Nikhil Sinha's show Siya Ke Ram. Ask her what prompted her to accept the role and she says, "I think there is more scope for me to get creative with my character as Kaikeyi and Kaushalya's roles were more or less defined." The actress will play the wife to senior actor Dalip Tahil, who portrays the role of Dashrath. She says, "Age hardly matters these days on TV. Whether I am playing a mother to Ashish Sharma who plays Ram or wife to Dalip Tahil, it does not matter to me at all. The genre of a mythological costume drama and the larger-than-life scale in terms of its creative vision are more important to me."

Star Plus' 2 shows to end as 'Siya Ke Ram' goes on air from 16 November


MUMBAI: Star Plus' two prime time shows namely Tu Mera Hero and Tere Sheher Mein are going off air from 14 November.
 
Produced by Shashi Sumeet Productions, Tu Mera Hero will be replaced by Nikhil Sinha's show Siya Ke Ram in the 8 pm time band from 16 November onwards.
 
The last episode of the show Tu Mera Hero, which launched on 22 December, 2014, will be aired on 14 November.
 
A source close to the development informed Indiantelevision.com that the reason the show is going off air is because it failed to generate sustainable ratings and the channel wanted to air the show in the same time slot.
 
As earlier reported by this website, Siya Ke Ram, produced by Trinagle Film Company, has been conceptualised by Aniruddh Pathak, who brought Lord Shiva's legend to TV through Mahadev.
 
Siya Ke Ram will offer viewers a fresh perspective on Ramayan. The story has been envisioned and created by some well-known writers namely - the best-selling author of Asura and Ajaya, Anand Neelakantan and Subrat Sinha - along with creative consultant Devdutt Pattanaik.
 
Star Plus' other show Tere Sheher Mein will also air its last episode on 14 November. Produced by Directors' Kut,Tere Sheher Mein was launched on 2 March, 2015 and aired from Monday - Saturday at 10:30 pm.  
 
Another source informed that an upcoming show from Rashmi Sharma Telefilms' titled Saajan might replace Tere Sheher Mein in the 10:30 pm slot on Star Plus.
 
Rashmi Sharma's existing show Saath Nibhaana Saathiya on Star Plus is among the top five programmes in the Hindi general entertainment channels (GECs) space according to Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) India ratings.
 
Saajan is a triangle love story, which also focus on issues of the youth. The official date and time is not yet revealed by the channel.  

Ashish Sharma returns!


Mumbai: Ashish Sharma, who played a border security force officer in 'Rangrasiya', will now be seen as Lord Ram in the upcoming show, 'Siya Ke Ram'. Ashish reveals that he has worked hard to perfect his portrayal. He says, "For me, the physicality of the character is of utmost importance. I need to stay true to the character I am portraying. With Ram, I thought it was necessary to have a calm face, and it was necessary for me to bring forth those attributes. When we look at Ram, people forget that he was a warrior prince before he became God. Having trained in archery in a gurukul, he is bound to have a strong body language so I have tried to incorporate these aspects in my role."

The telly actor may have won 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa', but Ashish says reality shows aren't for him. He says, "I won that show only because of my dancing skills; I was a flop for the reality part of it. I couldn't give them any exciting content."

Has Ashish, who previously featured in Dibakar Banerjee's 'Love Sex Aur Dhokha', found his comfort zone in TV now? He says, "For me, movies, TV and theatre are all the same " I want to explore all mediums. Today the reach of TV is way bigger than cinema. Even top actors in cinema came back to TV for six months of the year " be it Amitabh Bachchan, Karan Johar or Aamir Khan. When these stars realise the importance of TV, why won't TV actors understand it? I'm not dying to do a film, if I get something exciting I will do it for free because I've made enough money on TV. An anti-hero character would be exciting, something like Ek Villain or Haider."

Jaipur's Ashish to be seen as Lord Ram: Jaipur's Ashish Sharma will be seen playing the character of Ram in his upcoming show Siya Ke Ram. The actor admits that playing such roles is not easy. "If you are playing a character like Ram, you have to be cautious and extra alert. There is no room for errors. It requires thorough research and an understanding of the character that you play. There are various versions of the Ramayana, but I religiously followed Tulsidas' Ramayana." Ashish says he grew up in Jaipur listening to stories of Ram, Sita and Hanuman. "My grandfather would narrate the Ramayana to us. I used to get fascinated listening to this riveting epic, specially the character of Ram," he adds.Currently shooting for the show in various cities, he says, "Ramayana is set across the country, so we have shot in Madhya Pradesh, Assam, Kerala, Gujarat and even Bhutan. It adds authenticity to the show." Ashish admits that people will compare him to Arun Govil, who played Ram in Ramanand Sagar's epic teleserial Ramayan. "It is but natural. But it has a different vision and rather than focussing on Lord Ram, the show will depict his journey of becoming Lord Ram. It will also bring out his journey as a human being, a facet that was overlooked in other shows. It will also tell us how Sita played an instrumental role in this journey."To get into character, Ashish prepared for almost seven months. "The preparation included rigorous training in horse-riding, archery and martial arts. It was strenuous, but nevertheless fun."

Look revealed: Star Plus' Siya Ke Ram characters

(30/10/15)

From Rudra to Ram


Ashish Sharma


Popular television heartthrob Ashish Sharma is set to play Lord Ram in the new series on the epic

Ashish Sharma is calm and composed. The excitement over the fact that he is playing Ram in Siya Ke Ram, a mega TV serial from Star Plus is yet to sink in, even though he is only a few weeks away from beginning the shoot. As of now, Ashish Sharma is more popularly known as Rudra from Rangrasiya and for his awesome dance moves in the Jhalak Dikhla Ja show. A student of the Anupam Kher acting institute, Ashish's love for acting brought him to Mumbai, instead of NSD that he thought he would join. "I always had this dream to act, so much so even as a child, I used to take part in Ram Leelas. Guess what role I played? Hanuman! Year after year I played Hanuman; I still don't know why," laughs Ashish as he breaks a part of the Alu Tikki that is served to him on the table. Ashish says he is still unable to come to terms with the fact that his childhood dream of playing Ram in Ram Leela is going to realise. "Ram Leela didn't happen but what a way to see my dreams coming true," says this 'Love, Sex Aur Dhoka' actor. He says his grounded upbringing and belief that he should lead life as set by examples at home have helped him prepare for his role as Ram. The entire cast and crew of Siya ke Ram are presently in Ramoji Film City (RFC) where most of the shooting will take place. The sets are opulent and once inside, it feels like you have been transformed into a real palace. At RFC, the cast was unveiled and the formal announcement of the show was made by the channel head, in the presence of the creative director and the cast. When the role was being discussed with Ashish, the creator of the show was clear that they want "to show Ram as one already perceives through books, posters or calendars. We all have this idea of Ram being a patient person besides being a great archer, a horse-rider and above all a compassionate king. There is more to him than that. He will be slightly different here," he explains.

"In preparing for this role, I needed to have my own long hair, instead of a wig. So for the past seven months, I have been growing my hair, learning combat skills and horse riding and then trying to calm myself down to play the character. To immerse in the character is very important to give a true portrayal of what one is playing on screen," he elaborates. From playing Rudra to Ram has therefore been quite a change for this actor.

What about other projects? Ashish is honest in saying he hasn't looked at any other projects, because, "Siya Ke Ram will leave us with hardly any scope to think of other projects. And I wouldn't want to work on something and not be whole hearted in it either."

Creative talk

After successfully giving a new image to the look of Mahadev', different from what we have seen in calendars, creative head of Star Plus Anirudh Pathak started thinking of narrating the Ramayan in new format once again. "We have seen different dimensions of Ramayan. So what was pending? Then we thought that we haven't heard the Ramayan from Sita's view point. She's not different from Ram. She was with him always and that was her choice. She was a warrior herself and her story was out of compassion and not a compulsion. This Ramayan is racy, technologically upgraded as regards to shoots, camera, sets, locations etc. If we aren't giving them the flavour of Game of Thrones' then there was no point in telling the Ramayan once again," says Anirudh.

Siya ke Ram : Ramayan for the kalyug'

Oct 28, 2015 | Natasha Coutinho
RAM-PLAYED-BY-ASHISH-SHARMA.gif

Star Plus' new show Siya Ke Ram, unlike the name suggests, is not a take on Ramayan as we know it. It is in fact, the epic through the eyes of Sita. South actress Madiraksi who makes her television debut as Sita on the show, says, "We're not treating it like a mythological show. It's more like a show for the kalyug generation.

I didn't plan to get into television initially, but producer Nikhil Sinha's team chased me for seven months. He convinced me to come for a look test and that's when I realised how big the project is. My father is also a huge fan of mythological shows, so he pushed me for it."

How did she prepare for the role? "I watched Ramayana and read books on Sita."Ashish Sharma of Rangrasiya is part of the show as Ram. Talking about how he came onboard, he says, "I was offered many shows as well as films after Rangrasiya but I chose to television " after taking a four month break. Some filmmakers look at TV actors as sasta jugaad because we already have a fan following.

But I'm not interested in doing a project just because it's a film. When Siya Ke Ram came my way, I decided to do it even if it takes travelling to Hyderabad from Mumbai for one and a half years or however long the show runs. My wife and three puppies miss me terribly."

Talented and handsome Sujay Reu was recently in the headlines for his breezy love affair that has been going strong with his Shastri Sisters co-star, Neha Pednekar.

Now comes the news of Sujay's next big role in a TV show.

Well, here is yet another exclusive piece of information coming from the magnum-opus Star Plus show, Siya Ke Ram which is being shot at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad.

As per reliable sources, "Sujay has been roped in by the makers of Devon Ke Dev Mahadev, Triangle Films for the role of Bharat, the sacrificing brother of Lord Ram."

We tried calling Sujay, but he remained out of reach.

We dropped a text message to Producer Nikhil Sinha, but did not get any revert.

As we know, Sujay played the role of Rohan in Shastri Sisters. He has earlier been part of shows Ram Milaayi Jodi, Alakshmi.

TV folks talk about Star Plus' "Siya Ke Ram"


The  promo of Nikhil and Sohanna Sinha's Siya Ke Ram' on Star Plus is generating great reviews. It is the most talked about promo.  All we can say is that if you loved watching Devon Ke Dev Mahadev', then you will become a fan of Siya Ke Ram'! The promo is a mash-up of the initial chapters of the great epic Ramayana featuring a young ascetic performing penance in the wilderness, an old wise man, the young Princes of Ayodhya and Princess Sita with her sisters enjoying their childhood. Actor Ashish Sharma has been chosen to play Ram in the show, while Sita's role will be essayed by Madirakshi Mundle. The show is being shot in a majestic set erected in Hyderabad's Ramoji Film City as well as across India in different cities and areas. Producer Nikhil Sinha has put heart and soul into the project and it is expected to be a big hit. The grandeur and production vales are very classy. No one has made such a show before on Indian television. Mahadev created history and we are sure this show will again create history.

We spoke to select TV folks about Siya Ke Ram Promo.

Shashank Vyas: It's fantastic and larger than life. It is very well shot. It gives same kind of feelings when Bahubali promos were showing. I am looking forward to Siya ke Ram'. I would personally like to give wishes and luck to all the team members, producer Nikhil Sinha and channel. Great work on Indian television.

Romit Raj : I think if Hollywood television has "Game of Thrones" we Indians can proudly show them "Siya ke Ram" in exchange. I have worked with Nikhil when he was a cameraman and when I met him after he became a producer he was the same person at heart.

Shivin Narang : I think they always come up with something unique. This promo is somethings I have never seen on Indian television . It's looking bigger than Bahubali. I'm looking forward to watch this show.

Saurabh Pandey :  I have Seen Siya Ke Raam' promo. My friend Ashish Sharma is playing Ram and it looks like an epic film, like the film Bahubali. The production value is superb. I just love it and really looking forward to watch it. I wish my dear friend Ashish a lot of luck.

Sanjay Gagnani : I have seen the promo and it looked Grand. Very beautifully shot, it looks epic. It's an achievement for the makers as well as the TV industry that shows are being shot and made on such a huge scale. The promo looked like a film on TV! The promo looked like a film promo more than a TV show promo. And it's great that they have raised the bar since Mahadev and took it a notch higher even this time with Siya ke Ram'. If shows like these would be made by the makers and encouraged by the audiences, the day is not far when out Indian TV shows would be as strong as films in terms of creative and technical aspects of making.

Adaa Khan: I can foresee that it is going to be an epic show. The promo is amazing. I am sure they are going to give us some quality show. All the best to the team of Siya ke Raam'.

Srishty Rode : The graphics and special effects look like a film. Especially after Mahadev' we were expecting this only. I am eager to watch it.

Mrunal Jain: The promo looks amazing. The visuals are very promising. Producer duo have made an amazing show and I expect it to become a hit
Ajay Chaudhary: The promo is ver y appealing. Triangle film company makes fantastic shows. If Mahadev was a hit this show will be superhit

Simone won't be seen as Kaikeyi on the small screen

Saloni Bhatia,TNN | Oct 23, 2015, 12.00 AM IST |Simone won't be seen as Kaikeyi on the small screen
Simone Singh was supposed to make her mythological debut as Kaikeyi in the upcoming show 'Siya Ke Ram'. However, it seems that things didn't work out between the production house and the actress. 
We have learnt that Simone will not be a part of the show anymore. Sources tell us, "The makers were very keen on having Simone play the role of Kaikeyi as she fit the bill. Since the show is being shot entirely in Hyderabad, Simone wasn't too keen on shifting there. The producers are still trying to convince her, while looking for a replacement." 

When we contacted the actress, she chose not to comment on the development. "Why should I comment now? I didn't comment when I was offered the role. I didn't accept the role and I wouldn't like to comment about it," she said.

The upcoming show Siya Ke Ram, which stars Ashish Sharma of Rangrasiya fame, will soon be heading to Bhutan for the next schedule after their stint at Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad. The makers are leaving no stone unturned to make sure the show works with the audience. Our source says, "A vaastu expert was called to check the sets before the shoot and the channel plans to make it a visual treat on the lines of the blockbuster Baahubali." Let's see if this brings any luck to the show at all.
aloni Bhatia,TNN | Oct 22, 2015, 12.00 AM IST | TV Updates

Oh my GodBod! Actors bulk up to play bhagwan
When a mythological show is about to go on air, there's always a lot of buzz about how the actors have had to work on their physique to get into the skin of the character. 

While this is not common for actors who feature in your daily saas-bahu soaps, it is a given that actors on mythological shows will talk about their fitness mantra. However, producers tell us that there is a clear demarcation that exists between roles that require actors to beef-up, and roles that require them to look lean. We decode the theory of the godly physique for you. 

Why do producers demand god bods? Producers say that the toned bodies mythological characters on TV have these days, are indicators of the paradigm shift that the industry has seen in terms of actors' looks and appearances. Siddharth Kumar Tewary, producer of Suryaputra Karn says, "It's not about having six-pack abs. It's about the characters and the specific requirements of each character."

Siddharth Kumar Tewary, the producer of Suryaputra Karn, says, "In a story about warriors, they can't be made to look thin. I can't ask anybody who isn't tall to play a warrior. For mythologicals, you recreate a completely different world, and if your actors don't look the part, the battle is lost. Your Ram will look different from Mahadev. The earlier actors never needed to have a good physique. Today, whatever you show viewers needs to be aspirational. Even for Yam Hain Hum, the focus was to show a human side of Yamraj and we needed a fit actor to play that role." 
Nikhil Sinha, producer of the upcoming show Siya Ke Ram and of the popular Devon Ke Dev - Mahadev, concurs with Tewary. "Whenever we have heard the stories of kings or mythological characters from our grandmothers, we have always been given this impression that these characters are larger than life. They are very powerful, so this image has always been there in our minds. That's why, if you are showing Duryodhan as a thin person, the audience will never accept him. If you show a 5'7'' tall man as Hanumanji, the audience would never accept that.

That's why any actor who has to play such characters has to work on his physique. If you don't connect with the character, you will never connect with the story. Even if you look at the actors of the earlier Mahabharat, they were no less than six feet tall. They have always cast big guys. Our earlier heroes - Dharmendra, Vinod Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan - didn't have six pack abs. But with Salman Khan, fitness became a technique. It's not only about TV - even in real life, everybody is working towards such bodies," he opines.
Ram and Mahadev will be different The fact that chiselled bodies are the need of the hour doesn't mean that every toned actor can play God, say makers. There are differentiating physical characteristics that define characters. Abhimanyu Singh, producer of Sankat Mochan Mahabali Hanuman, says, "The image of God is ingrained in people's minds because of calendar art. Your casting is extremely important for a mythological. Before we decided on Nirbhay for Hanuman, we went for many look tests. While when we're casting for Ram or Krishna, you look at calendar art and try to stay as close to it as possible. When you are casting for Mahadev's role, you have to ensure that he looks extremely chiselled, because he's a god who lives in nature and is bare-bodied. Krishna and Ram are both avatars of Vishnu and are more divine. They don't require a six-pack, but the characters demand a slim and tall physique. The reason we chose Mohit for Mahadev was that when we saw him dressed as Mahadev, he looked close to calendar art." 
About the different aspects required for different characters, Sinha says, "Mahadev is raw power and Ram is subtle power. That's the difference you will see between Mohit Raina (who played Shiv in Mahadev) and Ashish Sharma (who will play Ram in Siya Ke Ram). If you put both the people in the same frame, Mohit will look like one who possesses raw power. He has broad shoulders and a calm face. Ashish looks very calm and has a lean body, lean face and straight hair. I go completely into details when I cast actors. With Mohit, I had told him that I want big shoulders and I told him to work on two parts - the deltoid muscle and the calf area. With Ashish, I asked him to lose fat from his body and get a lean physique."
Chiselled physiques means staying in touch with current demands Producers say that since gymming has become so important, the small screen's gods also reflect the trend of staying fit. "In calendar art, the warrior gods are all very chiseled and have a great physique. With time, people have become more conscious of their physiques and appearances. Most of the actors have a good physique and that helps in replicating calendar art. In fact, we are making an animation film, Mahayodha Ram, and most of the characters have great physique, even in animation."

The most interesting challenge for young Snigdha will be to portray the mother to Lord Ram, essayed by Ashish Sharma.

When contacted, Snigdha confirmed the news saying, "Yes, it is true that I have signed on to play Kaushalya in Siya Ke Ram. I certainly don't mind playing an elder character, as this show is going to be huge in terms of its promotion and presentation. Also, this is my first attempt at the mythological genre. Above all, the promo looks awesome with great visuals."

As reported in media, versatile actors Dalip Tahil will play King Dasharath while Simone Singh will play Kaikeyi.

Here's wishing Snigdha all the very best.

The first look of the show was released by the channel on 14th October and it truly encapsulates the scale and grandeur of the epic, while highlighting the key differentiator of a Sita who has a point of view, thus establishing Siya Ke Ram as a definite game-changer on Indian Television.

Star Plus, India's favourite storyteller, has created yet another magnum opus Siya Ke Ram, which has been conceptualised by Aniruddh Pathak who brought Lord Shiva's legend to TV through Mahadev. The story has been envisioned and created by some of the most renowned writers in the country - The best-selling author of Asura and Ajaya, Anand Neelakantan and talented writer Subrat Sinha - along with creative consultant Devdutt Pattanaik - the man who has redefined mythology for Indians today. Post the mega-success of Mahadev, Triangle Film Company continues their successful association with Star India as the makers of this magnum opus.

Siya Ke Ram Promo Review: A visual feast 


After Devon Ke Dev...Mahadev, Nikhil Sinha is back with another mythological drama, Siya Ke Ram. The project has been talked about since a while because of its sheer scale. So, we were eager to see its promos.

It opens with the sight of a lush coniferous forest and it's a pleasant sight. Then, we are treated to a visual of a huge palace. The aerial shots resemble the ones taken in SS Rajamouli's Baahubali. Like the film, this serial has also been shot in Hyderabad. It looks like the makers have paid attention to the VFX and it has come out well. The sets look lavish but are not garish, which is a welcome change. Shots of the sweeping landscape make the promo more spectacular.

Siya Ke Ram focuses on the love story between Lord Rama and Sita and tells the story from her perspective. This is the first time when the Ramayan is being narrated on TV from Sita's angle. It will apparently talk about her love, struggle and tryst with destiny.

The little girl who plays Sita looks quite sweet. It should be noted that the styling of the characters in Siya Ke Ram is quite simple and have a touch of authenticity about it. The background score is also decent.

Siya Ke Ram will have Ashish Sharma of Rangrasiya fame as Lord Ram. Midarakshi Mundle plays Sita. The ensemble cast also includes Tanvi Madhyan, Prithvi Hatte, Bijay Anand, Yukti Kapoor and Bhargavi Chirmule. It will go on air from November 2,2015.

Siya Ke Ram' Promo: Looks nothing less than an epic Hollywood film in grandeur!



The first promo of Nikhil and Sohanna Sinha's Siya Ke Ram' is just out. Words have failed us to describe how good the promo looks. All we can say is that if you loved watching Devon Ke Dev Mahadev', then you will become a fan of Siya Ke Ram'! The promo is a mash-up of the initial chapters of the great epic Ramayana featuring a young ascetic performing penance in the wilderness, an old wise man, the young Princes of Ayodhya and Princess Sita with her sisters enjoying their childhood. Actor Ashish Sharma has been chosen to play Ram in the show, while Sita's role will be essayed by Madirakshi Mundle. The show is being shot in a majestic set erected in Hyderabad's Ramoji Film City and it set to go on air November 2, 2015 onwards. Going by the impeccable detailer, it is safe to say that Siya Ke Ram' will redefine the mythological genre in India.




#PromoReview: Star Plus' Siya Ke Ram


When a mythological show aims to recreate the Ramayana from Sita's perceptive, it's already a winner in our eyes.

Star Plus' Siya Ke Ram opens with a palatial setting, surrounded by luscious green trees, majestic horses and kids playing around without a care in the world...yes, half a second into the show and you feel that you're watching a big-budget Bollywood flick. The sheer grandeur makes you want the promo to last a while longer.

Siya Ke Ram, produced by Nikhil Sinha, recreates the epic tale of Ramayana from Goddess Sita's vision than Lord Ram's. It's essentially her love story, her battle, and her tryst with destiny. Would Tulsidas' magnum opus be any different if he had narrated it from Sita's angle?

What we loved about the promo was that the young Sita was dressed like any other girl without overbearing her with jewelry and heavy lehengas. That's a nice touch, which makes the show more relatable and realistic. A special mention to the background score that lingers with us even after the promo has ended.

Watch the promo...you will definitely be sucked into the world of kings and queens, rights and wrongs, and good and bad...

The show stars Madirakshi Mundle as Sita, Ashish Sharma as Ram, along with Tanvi Madhyan, Prithvi Hatte, Bijay Anand, Yukti Kapoor and Bhargavi Chirmule. It debuts on TV on November 2, 2015.
