MUMBAI: Star Bharat announces the launch of its marquee show Chandrashekar a finite fiction series that narrates the story of firebrand freedom fighter Chandrashekar Azad in about 110 episodes. Set to launch on March 12th at 10 pm the series will capture each incident which marks the change from an ordinary young boy to the maverick revolutionary who decided to stand up for what he believed in. The show echoes the channel’s brand proposition ‘Bhula De Darr Kuch Alag Kar’ and inspires its viewers to overcome their fears. 

 Produced by Anirudh Pathak of Mahadev, Siya ke Ram, and Mahakumbh fame, the show set in pre-Independence India, charts Chandrashekar Tiwari’s transition from a young carefree 8-year-old to Chandrashekar Azad, whose mere mention made the British government break out in cold sweat. This show projects Chandrashekar as a multi-faceted personality, driven by the core philosophy that to fear is to die many times over. Inspired by his life, writer’s galaxy production has recreated his formative years based on events documented about this great hero.

Star Bharat Spokesperson said, “We believe in content that inspires change. Like our other clutter breaking shows, Chandrashekar too breaks the mould of a typical freedom struggle saga. Instead, it focuses on the minutiae of his life, the little details, the many twists and turns in his life that made him what he was – a towering revolutionary who knew no fear. Chandrashekar is a seamless fit with Star Bharat’s brand philosophy of ‘Bhula de Darr, Kuch Alag Kar’. We hope our show inspires our audience to work through their fears, overcome obstacles to meet their goals just like Chandrashekar did.”

Accomplished writer-producer Anirudh Pathak added, “Chandrashekar, even while it narrates the journey of one of India’s greatest revolutionaries, is also an inspiration. It shows that if our focus is right then come what may we will achieve what we set out to. Not many people know that Chandrashekar belonged to a remote village and by his sheer grit, determination, and courage came to be regarded as the commander in chief of the revolutionary army. This is also the story of a mother-son relationship, a journey of mother to motherland story where the mother is the source of Chandrasekhar’s courage and bravery. Chandrashekar resonates powerfully with Star Bharat’s brand philosophy of “Bhula de Dar, Kuch Alag Kar.”

Chandrashekhar will feature Ayaan Zuabir Rahmani as young Chandu, Sneha Wagh as Chandu’s inspirational mother Jagrani Devi and  Satyajeet Sharma as Sitaram Tiwari, Chandu’s father.
