Mumbai, October 29, 2015 (Akash Sharma): 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.

After the trail-blazing first look of the show, encapsulating the scale and grandeur of the epic, highlighted the key differentiator of a Sita who has a point of view, the channel unveiled the cast in Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad. Featuring Madirakshi as Sita and well-known TV actor Aashish 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.
