Meet These 6 Actors Who Played Mythological Characters With Finesse In Kurukshetra

The blockbuster, which premieres on ZEE5 tomorrow, boasts of a stellar star cast who have delivered power-packed performances


We can’t wait to watch the highly-anticipated blockbuster Kurukshetra, which premieres on ZEE5 tomorrow. The mythological drama, which is based on the Mahabharata, not only boasts of a stellar star cast but is also one of the biggest movies ever produced in Sandalwood. What makes it interesting is that the story is told from the point of view of Duryodhana. The role is essayed by Challenging Star Darshan, who prepared for the role by rehearsing everywhere, including the restroom and was required to wear costumes that were almost double his weight.

While we can’t wait to see Darshan on screen, here are some other significant roles essayed by well-known actors in the film!

Ambareesh as Bheeshma:

Huchche Gowda Amarnath, also known as Ambareesh, was a politician and a renowned actor in the Kannada industry. He has acted in over 200 films and will now be seen on screen as Bheeshma in Kurukshetra. This was the last movie that Ambareesh acted in before he passed away last year.

Sonu Sood as Arjuna:

Sonu Sood, who is known for his chiselled body, has been playing an antagonist not only in Bollywood but also in  Tollywood! This time, the self-confessed fitness freak will be seen as the valiant Arjuna, which is a fry cry from his usual negative roles. We can’t wait to see the actor as the famous mythological character who had to turn the tables on his own cousins.

V Ravichandran as Krishna:

The actor, producer as well as music director is best known for his charismatic personality and good looks. The versatile V Ravichandran has played the role of a villain as well as a romantic hero. This time Ravi will be seen as the all-knowing and all-powerful Krishna in Kurukshetra! We are sure that he will create magic on screen with his magnetic personality.

Arjun Sarja as Karna:

Arjun Sarja, known by his fans as the “action king”, will definitely bring in some action as he will essay the part of Karna and the best friend of Duryodhana, played by Darshan. It will be interesting to see how Arjun, who is known for playing the hero in Tamil cinema, will portray a character with grey shades in Kurukshetra!

Sneha as Draupadi:

Having acted in romantic Tamil films, Sneha will be seen as Draupadi, wife of the Pandavas, who is easily the most important character of the Mahabarata. The pretty actress has always been seen as the gentle and soft-spoken heroine on the big screen, so her turn as a woman who speaks her mind will be a treat to watch.

Danish Akhtar as Bhima:

Danish Akhtar Saifi is a wrestler who made his debut on the small screen as Hanuman in a television serial. Even though, he has played a mythological character in the past, this time he will be seen as Bhima in Kurukshetra! Let’s see how this goes!
