NewZNew (Chandigarh) : He’s an unassuming boy-next-door who is oblivious to the larger-than-life plans destiny has in store for him! Zee TV’s latest weekend offering ‘Maharakshak Aryan’ is a gripping narrative of coming-of-age and a walk into the darker realms of fantasy where a hero will face his worst fears, rewrite destiny and emerge a winner. Zee TV is strengthening its original programming with this series, and Aryan is a fun hour of television with the right mix of action and drama, coming to your television screens from this Saturday 1st November, every Saturday and Sunday at 7 pm.
Aryan is the first amongst Zee TV’s superhero trilogy ‘Maharakshak’ that will showcase the triumph of good over evil. The good is represented by Aryan, played by the promising debutant Aakarshan Singh and the bad by Triloki -the ultimate embodiment of evil, essayed by the talented Vikramjeet Virk. Triloki, is trapped in the center of the earth, under various layers, surrounded by molten Lava. He wants to bounce back to power and rule the world but the only way he can do so is by reclaiming the MANI, which is the ultimate source of energy available in the world. So to procure the MANI, Triloki will send his super villains – Vishkanya, Challa, Kumbha amongst others.
Playing the role of Vishkanya on the show is the beautiful Reshmi Ghosh. She will be seen as a sensuous, venomous villain. Vishkanya and her sirens live in a green, luscious world and will be sent to earth by Triloki – the ultimate embodiment of evil, to lock horns with Aryan, the protector of the world.
In Chandigarh today to speak about her character in the show, Reshmi said, “I am thrilled to play the role of Vishkanya on Zee TV’s upcoming superhero series – Maharakshak Aryan. As the name suggests, my character is lethal and sultry, half-snake and half-human. The look and costumes are simply breath-taking. She is blessed with the power to change forms to deceive anyone and can convert humans into snakes by releasing snakes into their bodies. She arrives on earth with an agenda of unleashing menace and destruction. Hope the audiences will love my character and love and support the show just as much.”
With the art director for films like Saawariya, Black and the director of Mary Kom, Omung Kumar, being roped in for the production design and Hardik Gajja, the popular visual effects designer for the graphics of the show, and Majid Khan as the creative producer, Zee TV has pushed the envelope in terms of creating an out-of-this-world ambience and the most fascinating landscapes for the battles between good and evil in Maharakshak Aryan.
Zee TV Programming Head – Namit Sharma said, “Maharakshak Aryan is one of our most ambitious projects and aims to set a benchmark in the fiction thriller genre. The show will be very different from any of the content we currently have on air. The ability of a superhero series of transporting viewers into an exciting world of fantasy, slick, cutting-edge superhero series is remarkable. The show captures the boy’s journey from an average teenager to discovering a hero within. Like any other boy his age, his world revolves around his friends, dreams, his love interest, family and his career aspirations. Little does Aryan know that he will soon find himself combating evil. It is the story of discovery of true heroism within one- self.”
Catch Aryan as he battles it out against a new villain each week in this finite series starting this Saturday 1st November, every Saturday and Sunday at 7pm only on Zee TV.
