Buddha' faced issues in Nepal for hurting sentiments!

Himanshu Soni as Buddha
B.K.Modi's dream project Buddha-The enlightened, aired on Zee TV has over the time caught everyone's attention.

For the uninitiated, Buddha, a vision of producer-B.K. Modi almost took years to go on floors and now it seems like their long wait has paid off. Sources says that the show has been appreciated globally and has received admiration letters from almost 25 Global Buddhist organizations.

Buddha is a global subject: B.K.Modi

Now that the show has been highly praised globally, fame always comes with a price tag. The show has faced some issues for hurting sentiments of people residing in Nepal.

The makers are though trying their best to narrate the story in a way that doesn't hurt anybody's sentiments. Sources say that there was some problem faced in Nepal by the makers for hurting sentiments concerning Dr. Ambedkar.

However, the producers are taking caution to avoid such circumstances by following various books on Dr. Ambedkar.

Stating on the same, creative-producer Ridhwana said, "There were problems that we faced but we always try to give and narrate the real story without hurting anyone's sentiments."

"On the other hand, we have recently received appreciation letters from 25 Global Buddhist organizations for making such a beautiful project," adds Ridhwana.

Buddha is a 52 episodes series and is slotted to go off air by 31st August 2014.

"Change in the time slot can make Buddha more popular"



Buddha on Zee TV is B.K.Modi's vision as he always wanted to make the project into a film. However, it has finally happened on Television. The creative and co-producer of 'Buddha', Ridhwana speaks to TOI.com on her journey and experience on working for Zee TV's Buddha.



How was your experience working for Buddha-The enlightened one? What should I say about Buddha? Buddha is the vision of B.K.Modi and I am completely satisfied with the way it has evolved. The experience is completing motivating for me. It's like I am living my dream. Buddha for me is a dream which I have seen for 10 years and finally it's happening which is a different experience .

Why Buddha as a concept? Buddha and his life is something which was never seen on Television. Though Buddha and his preachings were highlighted in a few movies, the concept was never touched upon on a large scale. The concept was never witnessed by the audiences and the entire story was untold.

How was it working with actors associated with 'Buddha'? It's amazing and pleasant to have a bunch of talented actors for our show. I feel proud of them. They all are well trained, they have come from the best acting schools and they all are amazing dedicated actors. Usually, for historical shows it becomes very difficult to cast appropriate actors for a particular character but here we are lucky that we have got a perfect casting.

According to you what is that important aspect to be a successful producer? One who gets to know the pulp of the audience is the one who can be a successful producer.

How difficult or easy it was to find the face of Buddha? It took almost 10 years to find the right face. We found our Buddha in Himanshu Soni, who has all the qualities which we wanted to see as Buddha. He is intelligent, he is good looking and he almost matches every quality of Buddha.

There are two costume dramas on the channel (Zee TV) right now, one is Ekta Kapoor's Jodha Akbar which is the numero uno show and the other one is Buddha, which is doing average on the channel. What are your views? I think the only factor for this difference is the time slot and nothing else because it becomes difficult for any show to garner good numbers on Sunday morning. Hence, change in the time slot can make Buddha more popular.

It's time for some change for TV actress Sonia Singh. Wondering why we are saying so? Well, audiences have always seen Sonia in negative roles and she has now bagged a creative role on TV.

A little birdie whispered in our ears that TV actress Sonia Singh, who was last seen in Colors' Parichay and Sahara One's Jhilmil Sitaaron Ka Angan Hoga as a vamp, has now bagged Zee TV's Buddha-Rajao Ka Raja and the actress will portray the character of Amrapali- the renowned dancer on the show.

"Sonia Singh has already started shooting for the show and her entry will be telecast soon in the upcoming episodes," adds our source.

When contacted, Sonia confirmed, "It's a pleasure to play something different after a long gap. I am looking forward for the role which was earlier played by Vaijanthimala in the movie 'Amrapali'."

TOI recently updated readers on a new entry in B.K.Modi's Buddha, aired on Zee TV. However, as per the latest information we have received, Sonia Singh who was roped in to play the character of Amrapali has backed out of the show. Why? Read on.

A source close to the sets informs, "Sonia Singh had already started the shoot for her role as Amrapali but unfortunately she got injured while rehearsing for a dance sequence. Hence, she won't be able to essay the character further. Luckily, her entry was not telecast."

When contacted, Sonia Singh confirmed, "I got hurt while practicing for a classical dance sequence. I twisted my leg and tore a ligament. As it takes long time to heal, I had no option but to back out from the show."

All we can say is get well soon Sonia!

Himanshu Soni is the new Buddha

Young actor from Jaipur Himanshu Soni is playing the character of Gautam Buddha in BK Modi's show Buddha. The actor has earlier done shows like Parvarish, Ramayan, Crime Patrol, Adaalat and a lead in a show called Yeh Zindagi Hai Gulshan.

READ: I want to be remembered as Buddha says Himanshu

When asked about doing such a serious role at such a young age, he says, "I was a line producer and have also done a bit of ramp modelling. My father is a painter and has his own business in which my mother also helps. After finishing my education my father wanted to see me settling down with something stable. When I announced that I want to become an actor they were never against that. After coming to Mumbai I have done shows where I played my age and when I got this role I knew that this is not only a show on Lord Buddha but also a journey of King Siddharth to Buddha. It is very fascinating and the story between Yashodhara and Siddharth is untold. And this is also a dream which BK Modi sir has nurtured for near about 35 years. I am honoured to be a part of B.K. Modi's dream. I was never reluctant to take up this right from my audition to look test to going for Vipasana. I was confident about the outcome. My family is also very happy with me." Himanshu also feels this show will mark a very important chapter in his career. "I got to learn many new things through this role. But for me, I am learning the nine emotions through one character. I feel lucky and fortunate and I hope that the audience will love me and shower their fondness towards me and Buddha."

Resshmi Ghosh replaces Nigaar Khan in 'Budhha' 

Resshmi Ghosh replaces Nigaar Khan in 'Budhha'
Resshmi Ghosh
Gauahar Khan's been making headlines for the past few days. Now, her sister Nigaar Khan too is in the news. Nigaar, who was playing the negative role of Mangala in Buddha has quit the show due to date issues. According to sources, she had wanted to quit the show for some time now. When we contacted Nigaar, she said, "I was losing out on many offers due to my dates with the show. It was an amicable decision with the production house, so there are no grudges." 

Resshmi Ghosh will replace Nigaar Khan. Reshmi, who married actor Siddharth Vasudev a few months ago, is excited about playing Mangala. It's not just the role, but also the fact that Siddharth will be her onscreen husband that makes it all the more interesting for her. 

So, was Resshmi recommended for this role by Siddharth? "No, it is only a coincidence that Reshmi is playing Siddharth's onscreen wife," said Ridhwana, co-producer of Buddha.
