Ramayan, the revered classic, forms the bedrock of Hindu mythology and its teachings are deeply engraved in our cultural history. A tale of Lord Ram and his beloved wife Goddess Sita is rendered eternal and it encourages us to follow the path of righteousness. Narrating the virtues of Ram-Sita through the lens of their sons Luv-Kush in an artistic rendition of the sacred scripture is COLORS’ magnum opus Ram Siya Ke Luv Kush powered by India Gate Basmati Rice. The show will unearth Luv and Kush’s quest to know their father’s identity which leads them to discover the power of his name and reunite their parents for the greater good. Produced by Swastik Productions, the show will premiere on August 5, 2019 and air every Monday to Friday at 8.30 pm on COLORS.
The show dates to the magical era when Lord Ram-Sita return to Ayodhya after their fourteen years of exile while Sita is an expectant mother. Celebrations galore and they are welcomed amidst festivities, but the happiness is short-lived. Lord Ram is met with a wave of despair as he finds Ayodhya vasis questioning Sita's morals and purity post her return from Lanka. While this baffles Ram, Sita senses his dilemma. She decides to leave Ayodhya to uphold her and every woman’s honor and Ram as a husband supports her decision. Beneath the quiet and submissive exterior of Sita, lies immeasurable power. She endures the courage to live by herself and gives birth to Luv and Kush. While they are oblivious to their lineage, they imbibe the same wisdom and compassion as their father Ram. They face adversities and overcome them like true warriors which lead them to reunite Ram-Sita, thus completing the eternal epic, Ramayan.
Essaying the character of Lord Ram, Himanshu Soni said,“I have grown up listening to mythological tales and have always been mesmerized by its greatness. This is my second time of playing a godly character and I feel fortunate to be able to recreate the magic through my roles. Playing Lord Ram has been a life-changing experience as it’s tough to emulate his powerful demeanor and strength on screen. Doing justice to it was extremely critical to me as an actor. I am looking forward to associating with COLORS and I hope that the viewers appreciate our efforts.”
Portraying Goddess Sita’s character, Shivya Pathania, said, “My entire family worships Lord Ram and Sita and they were extremely happy when I broke the news of playing Sita in the show. They felt that their dream has come true through me. I have played various mythological characters in the past but playing Goddess Sita was a different experience altogether. A lot of responsibility lies on your shoulder when you essay a divine character and I wish to live up to everyone’s expectations.”
The show also features a stellar cast including Harshit
Kabra as Luv, Krish Chauhan as Kush, Zuber Ali as Hanuman and Naavi Bhangu as
Lakshman amongst many others.
