Prachi SharmaMar 11 . 10 min read

Mahabharat is one of the oldest epics in history. Since our childhood, we all have listened to the stories from Ramayan Mahabharat. These two epics are full of knowledge that one needs to adapt to life. However, the very first attempt was made by B.R. Chopra to depict the inscribed story in the visual form on Television in the era of Doordarshan.

The episodes were telecasted every Sunday and this made to glue the family together to watch the series. The next attempt was done by the makers of Mahabharat star plus. The motive behind the remaking of this television series was to target the youth audience who is interested more in styling and other things.

Both times, the makers have tried their best to show everything they could. However, our parents and grandparents who have watched the earlier show, find it more relatable and fine. Mahabharat Hotstar is also liked by the viewers to a great extent.

The Mahabharat Star Plus cast has also given the best and tried their best to match the level of acting as in BR Chopra Mahabharat.

Mahabharat Star Plus was telecasted in the year 2013. The storyline was created by Siddharth Kumar Tewary, Sharmin Joseph, Radhika Anand, Anand Vardhan, and Mihir Bhuta. The director of Mahabharat Star Plus cast is Siddharth Anand Kumar and his associates.

Mahabharat Hotstar after 12 years:

The princes have grown up and showcase the skills they have learned in all these years. Arjuna wins the competition.

He faces a challenge thrown by Karna. Kunti recognizes him to be her son who she had begot from Lord Surya. Kunti had abandoned Karna as she was unmarried then. Meanwhile, Arjun becomes on good terms with Krishna. Lord Krishna narrates the story as depicted by the cast of Mahabharat star plus along with the Mahabharat ringtone. Here is a glimpse of Mahabharat Krishna images in Mahabharat Hotstar and among the Mahabharat Star Plus cast:

Pandavas visit Lakshagrah and get trapped into the Kauravas, Shakuni, and Karan's plan of killing them. But they manage to escape from there. The fake news of their death reaches Hastinapura. On the contrary, Kunti with her five sons lives like Brahmans. In the meantime, Bhim meets Hidimba after killing Hidimba, her brother. The couple gets married and later gives birth to a son who is named Ghatotkach. Amid the twisting turns and events, Pandavas get married to Draupadi.

All of them arrive at Hastinapur and try to put their point. The story of Mahabharat Hotstar takes a new turn when the kingdom of Hastinapur gets divided into two parts. Khandavpratha comes under the rule of Pandavas. They work hard and make that place like a new kingdom. They rename the place Indraprastha. Duryodhan gets jealous of witnessing their prosperity. To get hold of the Indraprastha, Kauravas lay a trap and invite the Pandavas to Hastinapur for playing a game of dice. Yudhishthir ends up losing Indraprastha and then Draupadi. Dushasana drags Draupadi to the court and is humiliated by all. Draupadi's honor is saved by Krishna.

As a result of the game of dice, the Pandavas receive the order for 12 years of exile followed by one year of incognito. The Pandavas spend their 12 years receiving boons from different lords. In the thirteenth year, they live in King Virat's kingdom. After the wait for one year was over, the Pandavas and Draupadi get to meet Abhimanyu Mahabharat and Upapandavas. Abhimanyu and Uttara get married. Here the show witnesses the entry of some new Mahabharat Star Plus cast members.

The Pandavas try all the ways out to peace but Duryodhan does not give his approval. This adamant behavior of Duryodhan leads to the announcement of the war of Kurukshetra.

Just before the war, Arjun Mahabharat receives the Bhagavad Gita's knowledge from Lord Krishna. The war commences and continues for 18 days. Both the groups face the mass destruction of brave warriors. Dhritarashtra in Mahabharat gets to listen to all the happenings from Sanjay. Amid the war, all the Kaurava's and Pandavas' relatives, children get killed. Abhimanyu gets killed with cruelty in Mahabharat Chakravyuh.

The war comes to an end when Bhim ends up killing Duryodhan.

Ashwatthama gets angry on seeing dead Duryodhana. He attacks the camp of Pandavas at night but ends up killing the Upapandavas. Then he tries to kill Uttara and her fetus with the Brahmastra. But, Shri Krishna revives them and names the child as Parikshit.

Lord Krishna curses Ashwatthama that he will bear severe pain for this heinous action. On returning to Hastinapur, Bhim is attacked by Dhritarashtra. Krishna is also cursed by Gandhari. The finale of the T.V. series Mahabharat Hotstar commences with Yudhishthir being crowned as Hastinapur's king. The Mahabharat Star Plus cast has been made to wear heavy jewelry and fancy outfit. The Mahabharat Ringtone is composed by Ajay Atul and approved by the director of Mahabharat Star Plus.
