Talented Snigdha Akolkar who has movies down South, Anjathe, Rajadhi Raja, Nandalala and the Bollywood flick, Love U… Mr. Kalaakar to her credit will play a major role in Star Plus' upcoming big-ticket mythological offering, Siya Ke Ram.
Snigdha who has done shows like Hare Kaanch Ki Choodiyaan, Vaidehi and was recently seen in Zee TV's Bandhan will play the role of Lord Ram's mother, Kaushalya in Siya Ke Ram.
Produced by Triangle Films, the first look promo of the show has certainly been a head turner and is touted to be the biggest launch in the present time.
For Snigdha, this will be her first mythological show, and we hear she has already started her shoot at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad.
A credible source told us, "The character of Kaushalya gains huge importance in Ramayana, and a lot is still unheard and unsaid about Queen Kaushalya's sacrificial nature. Siya Ke Ram will narrate such facts for the first time ever."
The most interesting challenge for young Snigdha will be to portray the mother to Lord Ram, essayed by Ashish Sharma.
When contacted, Snigdha confirmed the news saying, "Yes, it is true that I have signed on to play Kaushalya in Siya Ke Ram. I certainly don't mind playing an elder character, as this show is going to be huge in terms of its promotion and presentation. Also, this is my first attempt at the mythological genre. Above all, the promo looks awesome with great visuals."
As reported in media, versatile actors Dalip Tahil will play King Dasharath while Simone Singh will play Kaikeyi.
Here's wishing Snigdha all the very best.
