And he will be playing a LORD..
Sony Entertainment Television will soon be home to the story of the most loved god, Ganesha.
After essaying the lead character in Sony TV’s Suryaputra Karn, Basant Bhatt has successfully bagged another big mythological show, Vighnaharta Ganesha for the role of Lord Kartikeya.
Starting off as a performer in various cultural activities in school and colleges, Basant always knew that he wanted to enter the entertainment industry. He auditioned for multiple roles and even enjoyed small stints in theatre.
When contacted Basant, he confirmed, “Yes, I will be playing the role of Kartikeya in Vighnahartha Ganesha. It is a very different and exciting role to portray. I connect a lot with Lord Kartikeya’s ideals and values viz. being self-dependent, dedicated to duty and I have always ensured to follow the same in my life. The intricate combination of a warrior and dutiful son appealed to me to take up this great opportunity.”
The show primarily aims to showcase the special relationship a parent shares with his child and this show highlights the unheard stories of Ganesha.
