Adapting one of the greatest epics in the world – Mahabharat – is not mean feat. Yet, we have people like B.R. Chopra and Siddharth Kumar Tewary, who take it upon themselves to bring alive the magic of the remarkable epic on the small screen. The results of that hardwork are for all of us to see as the Mahabharat TV series has a huge fan following across the world.
Time has seen people go crazy watching the old Mahabharat in the 1980s. And now, the new version running on Star Plus is slowly making a place for itself in the hearts of those who have grown up watching the old rendition as well.
Be it the new characters or the costumes or the sets, we are coming to like every bit of Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s new epic saga.
That said we can’t forget to put in a word for Soap Queen Ekta Kapoor’s Kahaani Hamaaray Mahaabhaarat Ki, though it was a disaster because the makers’ take on the epic was too different for the audiences taste.
Anyway, here is a loud call for our readers to vote for the Mahabharat, which they have liked watching the most.
B.R. Chopra’s Mahabharat (1988)
