Star Plus to launch weekend magnum opus ‘Aarambh’
MUMBAI: Hindi GEC Star Plus is launching a new weekend show titled ‘Aarambh’. The magnum opus, written by KV Vijayendra Prasad (of ‘Baahubali’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijan’ fame), will mark the TV debut of veteran Bollywood actor and Kajol’s mother Tanuja Mukerji.
Mukerji will play the role of Hahuma, the spiritual leader of Dravidians, who is beyond time and is seen prophesying the future of Dravidians as well as Aryans.
‘Aarambh’ is the story about clash of two civilisations born and built out of two different existential needs—one desperately wanting what the other had and the other fighting to defend what they believed to be rightfully theirs.
Devsena (Karthika Nair), the heir apparent and an unparalleled warrior, born in matriarchal society, will be seen heading the Dravidian clan to rescue it from the ambush of the Aryans, who, in search of Sapt Sindhu, were willing to leave no stone unturned.
It is on the battlefield that she encounters an admirable warrior from the Aryan clan, Varundev (Rajniesh Duggall), who through his endurance has risen up the ranks in a democratic society.
This battle marks the beginning of not just the biggest conflict there once was between these two civilisations but also unfurls the story of two warriors who are fighting from opposite sides unaware of the fact that destiny has something else planned for them.
‘Aarambh’ is driven by all the variants of the human emotions’ spectrum—love, jealousy, pride, hatred, greed and all the other shades in between and is therefore set to keep the audiences intrigued and wanting to see more.
