Produced by Goldie Behl and Shrishti Arya, Star Plus’ upcoming periodic drama Aarambh is one of the most awaited shows of Indian television. One, because it’s been written by Baahubali writer KV Vijayendra Prasad and second because it’s a story that’s never been told on television before. The show, that traces the beginning of civilization, will see the clash between two clans — Aryans and Dravidians. It stars Rajniesh Duggal, South actress Karthika Nair and veteran actor Tanuja Mukherji in lead roles.
The channel shared the first look of the finite series today. The logo has the name of the show, Aarambh, written in devanagiri script with the first letter designed in the shape of a trident (trishul). It also has a lion and a bull, which are symbolic of the two civilizations to be shown on the series.
KV Vijjayendra Prasad has given us films like Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017), Baahubali: The Beginning (2015), Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015), Makkhi (2012) and Magadheera (2009) and they have all been blockbusters. ‘Aarambh’ marks his debut on television and we are sure the master mind will spread his magic here too.
As far as the story is concerned, the Aryan clan will be shown to be in the search of Sapt Sindhu and will fight with the Dravidians to acquire the same. An unparalleled warrior, Devsena(to be played by Karthika), will be heading the Dravidians and will fight to rescue her tribe from the ravaging Aryans. On the battlefield, she will meet Varundeva (to be played by Rajneish), a valiant warrior from the Aryan clan, and they will develop an instant chemistry. Huhuma (to be played by Tanuja) will belong to the Dravidian clan and play the spiritual sooth-sayer who guides her clan. Aarambh is about Devsena and Varundeva’s love story and how it flourishes amidst the rivalry between their clans.
