'Buddha...' will impress youth the most: Producer

Indo Asian News Service

Mumbai, Sep 3 (IANS) TV show "Buddha - The King of Kings", based on the life of Gautam Buddha, will be liked by youngsters the most as it has contemporary elements, says its producer B.K. Modi.

"This show is according to today's time and it will find a place among the youth as it endorses their actions that 'Do what you want to'," Modi said here Monday at the launch of the show.

"In today's time, the youth wants to live their life according to their beliefs and as the show progresses, the youngsters will like it the most," he added.

"Buddha..." will be aired on Zee TV every Sunday at 11 a.m., the same time slot occupied by recently concluded "Ramayan".

Modi says too many shows on epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata have very little left to excite the audiences. But the attempt with "Buddha..." is to tell the untold.

"'Ramayana' and 'Mahabharata' have been made so many times. So there is no uniqueness left, the message and suspense is already known to the people. Our title itself says 'Ansuni Kahaani'," he said.

Directed by Dharmesh, "Buddha..." stars Nigaar Z. Khan, Sameer Dharmadhikari and marks the comeback of actor Kabir Bedi.
