The upcoming episodes of &TV’s Kahat Hanuman Jai Shri Ram are all set to move to another remarkable narrative with the entry of Ravana, to be portrayed by popular actor, Manish Wadhwa. The ten-headed Ravana, also known as Dashanan, will be seen comparing himself with Lord Vishnu and calling himself the supreme power. As he is seen completing his yagna and entering Lanka, the faces of Gods change in temples to resemble him. With a vast procession, the grand rajyabhishek of Ravana takes place where he is bathed in milk, honey and flower petals. Previously, Ravana’s mother Kaikasi (Alka Kaushal) had seen a shadow of a vanar and Lanka burning, and she sent Rakshas Subhau (Pradeep Kabra) and Mareech (Romanch Mehta) to find out about Maruti.
Speaking about his role as the mythical evil king Ravana, Manish Wadhwa says, “Ravana is always shown as a character who behaves in a certain way – speaks and laughs loudly and terrorises people around him. However, this time the viewers will be seeing a much composed Ravana, bringing alive all attributes of him including gyani brahmin, musician, artist, and demon, among others.” Adding further, says Manish, “The biggest challenge for me was to bring a substantial essence to this significant character which has been portrayed successfully by many seasoned actors. What is essential for me is to differentiate yet bring alive his strong characteristics once again on-screen. I am extremely excited and look forward to making a mark with this brand-new role.”
Giving viewers a glimpse of the unheard tale of the invincible evil Ravana, watch the fascinating mythological journey of how Bal Hanuman eventually emerge as the greatest devotee of Lord Ram to bring a successful end to Ravana’s reign of terror.
Get set to watch the grand entry of Ravana in the upcoming episodes of Kahat Hanuman Jai Shri Ram every Monday-Friday at 9:30 pm only on &TV!
