MUMBAI: After presenting the magnum

Star Plus has unveiled their new epic
saga ‘Siya Ke Ram’. The show will hit
the TV screens in November, around
the occasion of Diwali.
The epic tale of ‘Ramayan’ will be told
for the first time from the lens of
Sita, giving viewers a fresh
A statement from the channel
mentions, “Star Plus has always stood
for compelling stories featuring
strong, empowered and inspirational
women protagonists. Now the channel
is bringing to its viewers a fresh
perspective on Ramayan, ‘Siya Ke
Ram’ where the story will be seen
from Sita’s perspective.”
A channel spokesperson said, “Star
Plus wants to present Sita as a multi-
faceted woman with a mind of her own
who was Ram’s ardhangini in the true
sense of the word, thus making her
relatable to every woman of today.
Sita continues to be relevant to this
day and we want to pay tribute to the
modern Indian woman by presenting
Sita’s inspiring story.”
The first look of the show was
released by the channel on 14 October
and it encapsulated the scale and
grandeur of the epic, while
highlighting the key differentiator of
Sita who has a point of view.
A source informs that most of the
shooting of the show has been in
outdoor locations including
Darjeeling, Bhutan among others and
the shooting is presently going on.
In fact, in the promo, the first shot
of the temple is of the archaeological
site in Karnataka called ‘Group of
Monuments at Pattadakal’.
“The story is such that it will run on
the channel for at least a year. The
magnum opus will see very less use of
CG unlike other shows and that is why
we planned intense outdoor shoots,” a
source said.
‘Siya Ke Ram’ has been conceptualised
by Aniruddh Pathak who brought Lord
Shiva’s legend to TV through
‘Mahadev’ on Life OK. The story has
been envisioned and created by
renowned writers like the best-selling
author of ‘Asura’ and ‘Ajaya’, Anand
Neelakantan and writer Subrat Sinha
along with creative consultant
Devdutt Pattanaik.
Post the success of ‘Mahadev’,
Triangle Film Company is continuing
their successful association with Star

The show was set to release much
earlier in the year, with the channel
releasing the first look months ago.
However, given the grandeur of the
saga, the outdoor shoots were very
extensive and hence it got delayed
