Another article in TOI today which tags Sameer Dharmadhikari

Buddha will spread message of non-violenc

"The first shot of mythological show "Buddha" was taken on the occasion of Buddha Purnima at the Film City here and the makers say it will spread the message of non-violence and equality among the youth.

Being produced by Spice Global, the show is based on the life of Prince Siddhartha and his transition from being a prince to Buddha.

Calling "Buddha" a personal commitment to himself, B.K. Modi, global Chairman, Spice Global, said: "Buddha is perhaps the most important personality to have born in the recorded history of India and we are sparing no effort in making this effort special. Today's youth has to be free from all prejudices and hypocrisy. They need to connect with youth globally to spread the message of non-violence and equality."

"We have put together a very competent cast and are close to finding the actor who is going to play the role of Buddha. This epic will showcase to help the youth to be fearless and move confidently for success in their lives," Modi added.

The first shot of the serial was shot by the actors Sameer Dharmadhikari and Kabir Bedi, who play important roles in the serial.

Glad we didn't make film on Buddha: B.K. Modi

Glad we didn't make film on Buddha: B.K. Modi
Kabir Bedi More Pics
Industrialist B.K. Modi, who is making a mega-teleseries on Buddha's life under his banner Spice Global, is glad that he didn't make a film on Buddha's life. 

He feels that they would not have been able to do justice to Buddha's character in a film. 

It's been more than three years when filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker and Modi announced the making of a film on Buddha's life, but it was shelved. 

Later, it was reported that Shekhar Kapur may helm the ambitious project. 

"I am glad that we didn't make a film because in a two-hour film, I wouldn't have done justice to the Buddha's character, Buddha's teachings, Buddha's life," Modi said here Saturday at the launch of the series on "Buddha". 

"Buddha", a 52-episode series, will tell the story of Prince Siddharth and his transition into the Buddha. 

Talking about the format of the show, he said: "It's not 52 serials that we are making, we are going to make 52 films of one hour each." 

"So it's going to be something which will give us enough time and enough subject to discuss all aspects of Buddha that the story deserves," he added. 

In the show, actor Kabir Bedi will be seen playing a sage who forsees Buddha's coming. Besides, Sameer Dharmadhikari and Gunjan Uprari will also be seen in prominent roles. 

On being asked about the film on Buddha, Modi said: "May be after the serial is complete, we may take up again the film project." 

The teleseries will be aired on Zee TV.

However, TOI.com was the first to report onBuddha and here we come back to share some more information on the series. 

Source informs, "As Kabir Bedi is the one who foresees the coming of Buddha, Sameer Dharmadhikari will join the show as Buddha's father." 

Sameer Dharmadhikari was recently in media for being part of Swastik Production's Mahabharatand now he is all set to return to Zee TV after Ek Veer Stree Ki Kahani Jhansi Ki Rani

We too hear that Buddha is a 52 episodes series and if the show is well observed by the audiences the channel will extend the run of the show. On 25th May the show has set its 'Mahurat' and will go on floors accordingly. 

When contacted, Sameer Dharmadhikari confirmed, "Yes, it's a pleasure and a dream come true to work with Kabir Bedi. I liked the concept and the making of the show hence I gave a node to it." 

Keep reading this space to know more updates!!!

extract from  the article in TOI yesterday on Kabir Bedi

Zee TV is soon going to telecast a TV series on the life and teachings of Gautam Buddha.
The show which was ideally supposed to be a movie will have Kabir Bedi playing a pivotal role.

"I am playing a sage who foresees the coming ofthe Buddha. I couldn't refuse Dr BK Modi (producer), who is a friend of mine," says Kabir.

The show is based on historical facts and will tell the story of prince Siddharth and his transition into the Buddha. 

The series will soon be aired on Zee TV.
