Director Writer Siddharth Kumar Tewary who has created some milestones on Indian television with his interpretation of the biggest epic “Mahabharat ” and more recently the untold unheard story of lord “Shani” creating benchmarks in storytelling and production values is set to launch his next premium series ” Mahakali” on colors.
This mega series will depict the unexplored story of goddess Kali and none other than Pooja Sharma will bring the fiery goddess to life on screen, after playing the most prestigious role of Draupadi in his “Mahabharat ” she is all set to make an impact again.
Sources say Pooja was unsure if she would fit in as Mahakali, and she communicated the same to the team and then Siddharth personally met and convinced her over two hours to just do the series, she trusted siddharth’s creative vision and has taken up this big challenge and knowing her acting capabilities, she will surely do justice to all other forms of Mahakali that the series will depict, from Adi Shakti, to sati to Durga.
Pooja returns to the screen after a gap of two years where she worked on her craft and now her fans won’t need to wait long as the series is expected to launch really soon.
Siddharth confirmed and said, “ Pooja is fabulous actor and more importantly she is truly committed to her craft, the fact that she has waited for such a long time for a role that challenges her shows her self belief and I respect that, we did audition other people for the role but I always had pooja in mind as I have worked with her in Mahabharat and I know the value she will add to the depiction of the most revered goddess on screen.”
