Originally posted by Varnita.OMG, These actors have Been Approached for the Role of Ram Sita, I m Shocked Big time and really doubt abt the Success of this Series . I will actually not wonder if it Becomes another KHMK !!
FOr the Holy roles of Ram and Sita we need new Fresh Faces..So that People Actually can accept them in the Characters and start seeing their Gods in them !! This is the Reason for Why ASR Proved to be a Big hit...First Reason Definitely is the Complete Sprituality, Divnity and Devotion contained in it Demanded by the Mythos but the Second Most inportant Reason is People Have Actually Seen their Gods in Gurmeet and Debina...Because they were Complete New faces at that Time, and Have Done Complete justice with the Roles !!
But here all are the Well Known Faces...Aditya from Na aana is Desh, Aamir from Jyoti, Avinash from Choti Bahu, Sanjeeda from JPSWA, Suhasi from YMGGK And Rubina again from CHoti bahu !! People have Seen them as different characters and they r definitely not Going to accept them as the Gods Just Like Ekta Kapoor's KHMK !!
The Same thing Happened with DBSK...Though the Reason of failure of that Series is the Lack of Sprituality but an Another Big reason is Vishal who was Playing Krishna has ALready Played the Lead role in Bhagyavidhata...ANd After Seeing the First Promo of it the First words my Mother said were "this Series is Gonna Complete Flop for their Choice of Krishna in It" !!
ANd Now Sagars are again Repeating their Mistake !!
I don't know if you've seen DBSK Varnita, but Vishal was actually quite good as Krishna. I too was surprised since known faces never do become hits in mytho roles, but Vishal was the only good thing about DBSK. Most of the other actors were bad choices.
But I agree that in general, choosing fresh and new faces makes mythos more popular, because people don't have preconceived notions about them. Even Ekta Kapoor chose popular actors for her mahabharat serial, and it became a total flop. On the other hand, the serials which used fresh faces have become a hit, like RSR, RSK, ASR, and even JSK despite its flaws with Dhriti.
Who personally is going to watch this new Ramayan? I might try a few episodes but I don't think I'll feel very inspired to follow it. I am satisfied with RSR and ASR which I love.
