Aryamaan- Brahmaand Ka Yoddha to start telecast from 14 July

After the resounding success of Shaktimaan, Mukesh Khanna now brings Aryamaan- Brahmaand Ka Yoddha.

A fantasy tale of high drama, battles, political intrigue, changing loyalties, betrayal, romance, adventure, thrills and so on, Aryamaan is a story of a warrior prince of Thar empire which belongs to Ariyana galaxy which is millions of years away from planet Earth. The serial is slated to begin telecast from 14 July, every Sunday between 12:00-1:00pm on DD1. 

" Aryamaan is ten times bigger than Shaktimaan in terms of backdrop, drama, action, adventure, thrill, production values and special effects,"says Khanna. He believes that Aryamaan will be a trend setter as far as DD programming is concerned and will bring about a turnaround in DD's image the same way KBC turned Star around. 

Mukesh Khanna in and as Aaryamaan

The first episode of the serial was shown to a select group of journalists last night at the Taj and if it is anything to go by, its grandeur indeed would overshadow Shaktimaan many times over.

But isn't he wary of losing money on it, given the huge budgets involved? "This project will get enough sponsors to make it profitable by the 13 th episode. As a strategy we have also decided to swap the time slots of Aryamaan and Shaktimaan, So, Aryamaan which was originally given the 9:30 am slot on Sunday will actually be telecast at 12:00pm which has been Shaktimaan's slot whereas Shaktimaan will be telecast at 9:30 am. This way, both serials will benefit. While Shaktimaan has a dedicated viewership that will remain unaffected irrespective of its slotting, Aryamaan will benefit from the 12:00 pm slot as viewers would definitely be keen to find out about Shaktimaan's replacement."

Actor Kiran Kumar, who plays a pivotal role in the serial said," We actors work only for money or for a good role. On very rare occasions we work out of respect for someone's vision and conviction. I'm doing this serial only for Mukesh Khanna to support him in his efforts to break away from the ordinary and produce good quality entertaining and educating stuff for children."

With his serials, Khanna intends to create a new genre of programs that would contain high drama, thrills, adventure and weave elements of science fiction in it to make the programs educative as well.
