BR Chopra’s Mahabharat featured Mukesh Khanna as Bhishma, Pankaj Dheer as Karna, Gajendra Chouhan as Yudhishthir, Arjun as Arjun, Roopa Ganguly as Draupadi, Puneet Issar as Duryodhan and Nitish Bharadwaj as Krishna, Gufi Paintal as Shakuni Mama, Harish Bhimani as show narrator cum anchor (better known as the voice of Samay) among others. The show transports the audiences into a world of varied emotions. It portrays the battle of Dharma and Adharma (right and wrong) and showcases characters that are still very real, relatable to the present generation and teaches us life lessons to live in today’s era. 

A Star Bharat Channel spokesperson said, “Stories of good overpowering evil have fascinated audiences across age groups. One such story is the legendary tale of Mahabharat, which holds relevance even today. By bringing this show, Star Bharat’s aim is to encourage, motivate and reassure its viewers the positive thought of ‘darkness is followed by light’. Also, approximately 135 mn viewers of Hindi GEC are yet to sample or see the show on TV. Through this show we want to spread hope, cheer and confidence to deal with tough times. Mahabharat has life lessons for everyone and hence if it is shown again, today’s generation can learn a great deal from the same.”

Harish Bhimani, voice over artist, anchor, writer-author, said, “Mahabharat’ holds a mirror to dos and don'ts of life and nudges us to rise above the perils of emotions and be righteous in life. Even today, the show creates a never-seen-before charismatic viewing experience right in front of the television sets for viewers of all age groups. We are happy to hear that Star Bharat is bringing back the show to entertain viewers during such turbulent yet stagnant times in the country. In every situation, I search for positivity and all I can say is that the audience should look forward to these deeply philosophical ideas that perpetuate throughout the epic tale and have a lot to teach us about the art of living.”
