MUMBAI: Revered as the divine mother, feared as the dark and ultimate destroyer; a serene wife or an angry, uncontrollable force? What led to Goddess Parvati taking on the ferocious avatar of Maa Kaali?

Committed to championing and propagating content highlighting tenacious women, Colors launches Mahakaali: Anth Hi Aarambh Hai. Extending the weekend prime time slot, the show traces the epic story of Goddess Parvati?s metamorphosis into Maa Kaali, a fierce shakti who is misconstrued as an all-consuming destroyer.

Featuring actors Pooja Sharma and Sourabh Raaj Jain in lead roles of Kaali and Shiva, Mahakaali: Anth Hi Aarambh Hai will delve into the pages of Indian mythology to reveal what makes Maa Kaali untameable and limitless. Produced by Siddharth Kumar Tewary?s Swastik Productions, this mytho-drama will premiere on 22 July 2017 and air every Saturday and Sunday at 7:00 PM on Colors.

To promote Mahakaali: Anth Hi Aarambh Hai, Colors has devised an extensive integrated marketing and digital plan involving different mediums such as print, television, cinema, radio, OOH, etc. The channel has also planned a series of ATL and BTL promotional activities to create a top-of-mind recall amongst target audiences.

Speaking about this new offering, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head ? Colors said, ?Now, with a show like Mahakaali, we are extending the weekend primetime to depict the story of Indian mythology?s most feared and revered Goddess. We at Colors pride ourselves in great storytelling. Today?s Indian woman is fierce and unstoppable, but she doesn?t realise her own power and potential unless faced with adversity. Mahakaali?s story is our attempt to inspire women to know their true worth.?

A tale of self-realisation tracing the circle of justice, Mahakaali: Anth Hi Aarambh Hai focuses on bringing evil to its rightful end, to make way for righteousness and positivity. Starting with the furore that converts the demure Goddess Parvati into the aggressive Maa Kaali, the show will capture the many struggles that Parvati (essayed by Pooja Sharma) will experience as she accepts her fate as the merciless Maa Kaali and her other 10 devi avatars called, Dasham-Mahavidya. And, helping her along this journey will be her husband, Mahadev (played by Sourabh Raaj Jain). In his Shankar avatar, he will be Parvati?s biggest support system and guide as she discovers her destiny as the Aadi Para Shakti which makes her even more superior than the Holy Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahadev.

Tewary said, ?Bringing alive the mystic imagery of Maa Kaali for the television viewers is no ordinary feat. Goddess Kaali has a deep purpose which is often overlooked and scarcely understood. We have worked tirelessly in creating a magnificent canvas which does justice to her ferocity and underlines the core reason of why she came into existence and how is it relevant to the viewers today. We are utilizing high-end VFX and prosthetics to highlight the fantastical element in the story, in keeping with the mythological era. Intense research has led us to the ideal depiction on-screen, and we hope that the viewers like Mahakaali as much as they have supported Karmphal Data Shani.?

Along with Pooja Sharma and Sourabh Raaj Jain, Mahakaali: Anth Hi Aarambh Hai will feature a stellar cast including actors Falaq Naaz as Goddess Saraswati, Nikita Sharma as Goddess Laxmi, Akash Kumar as Lord Brahma, Gagan Kang as Lord Indra, Abhaas Mehta as Shumbh, Danish Akhtar as Nishumbh, and Arjit Lavania as Nandi amongst many others.
