“Expectations are high from this show as it would be from any other show that we launch. Saraswatichandra is being mounted on a very large scale,” says Nikhil Madhok, vice president, Marketing, STAR Plus when asked about Saraswatichandra.


The serial marks the debut of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the small screen. The filmmaker, credited for creating memorable characters in his epic love stories, will replicate his magic through a modern-day portrayal of Saraswatichandra and Kumud. The show will feature Gautam Rode as the multi-layered Saraswatichandra while Jennifer Winget plays the role of Kumud. Actors Monica Bedi and Chetan Pandit will also play pivotal parts in the show. While Sanjay Leela Bhansali is also the creative director, Arvind Babbal will be the series director for the show.


The show premieres on Star Plus on February 25, and will run Monday to Friday at 7.30 pm.

“Mr Bhansali has got into every detail of every character. He is amazing in making us understand our role. I have been amazed and have been able to understand the character of Saraswatichandra better as he explained it to me brilliantly,” said lead actor Gautam Rode, on how different it was to work with the filmmaker on a daily soap.


“The show is being promoted through beautifully crafted and mounted TVCs, building up the enigmatic hero Saraswatichandra and the quintessential heroine Kumud. We also did a exclusive web premiere of the show on Valentine Day and a spectacular light and sound show on the elaborate sets to formally announce the show launch. The visual splendour of the show will be further built on outdoor and print closer to launch,” added Mr Madhok.
