To be aired on Zee TV
, Buddha will feature veteran actor
who will be seen on Indian Television after a really long time. He
plays Asit Muni who will introduce the show. Based on historical facts and
telling the story of prince Siddharth and his transition from a royal to Buddha
the show plans to portray the teachings of the great man.
father is actor Sameer Dharmadhikari
who is a popular name in films and television. His popular roles were in Rajshri Productions Yahaan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli and Main Teri Parchhain Hoon
. He is soon to be seen in Mahabharat too.
Talking to TellyBuzz today even as he was getting ready for the mahurat shot for Buddha, Sameer said, "It is an important serial and a very prominent story and
character that prompted me to say ok to it. I feel that this is a never
explored story and looking at the sets, costumes I can say that this is an as
yet unexplored territory and I am excited to be a part of it."
Sameer who has earlier too done mythologicals and
historicals on Indian television feels that this is a very different show, "I can
see that there is a sudden boom in mythologicals and historicals which are back
with a bang suddenly and everyone is now exploring new subjects in these
genres. However, with Buddha I can see the difference in the vast sets, excellent
styling, costumes and even the language of the dialogues."
The show has a vast team which is working on all aspects of
production and Sameer says that he is dependent on them as an actor, "I have
not done any research about the role and neither do I know much about it at
present. The team is surely working on it and I will get to know more about my
character as the shoot progresses."
Unlike co-actor Kabit Bedi who has a strong bond with Buddhism
as he was keen follower, Sameer has no such association, "I have never been a
follower of Buddhism and not even read any books on it. However, because of
this show I think I will be able to explore this religion and learn more about
it. I am eager to know more about the person and the legend Gautam Buddha, his
life and his teachings."
The set for the serial Buddha has been set up in a serene
spot at Filmcity and that is a big relief for Sameer who stays nearby. "I can go
home for lunch everyday" quips the actor on a lighter note.
