Puneet Issar as Jarasandh

Mumbai: After more than a decade, Puneet Issar is seen in his most popular avatar in the small screen, that of a mythological character “Jarasandh” in “Dwarkadheesh: Bhagwaan Shree Krishn”, the new show on Imagine TV which is on air from 04 July 2011. Puneet Issar will essay this evil personality–– who is most famous for his role as Duryodhana in the TV adaptation of Mahabharata.

Expressing his experience on playing the character of Jarasandh in Dwarkadheesh: Bhagwaan Shree Krishn, Puneet Issar said, “I am really enjoying playing the role of Jarasandh, a very important character which not many people are aware of. Also, I am glad to be a part of a show which is shot on such a large scale and thank Imagine TV and Sagar Production for giving me an opportunity to play a mythological character after a long time.”

“Jarasandh” is a very interesting character and undoubtedly a challenging role to perform since he was born half and half to two mothers, who disowned him; later he was joined into one whole human being by Jara (rakshasi), hence known as Jarasandh. Hence he will be depicted with a DUAL personality - one aggressive and the other almost cowardly.

Imagine TV has certainly roped in the right artiste for the right character.

Dwarkadheesh: Bhagwaan Shree Krishn is telecasted every Monday to Friday at 08.00pm on Imagine TV

Brief about Dwarkadeesh: Bhagwaan Shree Krishn

Dwarkadheesh: Bhagwaan Shree Krishn, produced by Sagar Pictures, will to light the divinity & grandeur of every aspect of Lord Krishna’s life. For the first time on Indian television, watch Krishna – the warrior who defeated Jarasandh 16 times, stories of Krishna the valiant lover who whisked away Rukmani from her Swayamvar, the dependable brother who got his sister married to Arjun, the savior who rescued 16000 enslaved women from the clutches of evil Jarasandh, the master strategist who guided Arjun on the path of victory…and much more!

Lord Krishna is a God for all. A hero for the kids, a lover for young girls, a friend/philosopher/guide, an ideal son….one who did not believe merely in goodness but stood firm for doing what is right. Dwarkadheesh: Bhagwaan Shree Krishn will highlight the lesser known of Lord Krishna’s vibrant personality. The show aims to re-enforce Lord Krishna’s heroism & leadership & highlight that his philosophies are as relevant & integral to Modern India as they were to ancient times. Vishal Karwal will be playing the lead character of Krishna on this mythological magnum opus.
