The promotions for the upcoming ETV Bangla serial Maa Durga were done in the presence of the star cast Payel Dey and Rudrajit Mukherjee, who play the role of Parvati and Shiva in the serial. The promotions of this upcoming Bengali serial took place at Chandi Mela (Near Sakherbazar Behala).
Looking pretty in a beautiful red sari and heavy jewelry, actress Paayel Dey was visibly excited to be cast in such a character. “It is a great opportunity for me to play the role of Parvati in the upcoming serial. I had never worked with Chroma before despite having played many mythological characters before. This is a unique experience for me. I have to visualize the scenes and then act accordingly. A lot depends on my imagination. Hence the challenge is more and it is very exciting also for me” said the actress. The actress who is a trained creative dancer (ex-student of Ananda Shankar Centre for performing arts) was also happy that she will be able to showcase her dancing skills in front of the audience.
Rudrajit Mukherjee plays the role of Shiva in the serial. “I have no tension regarding the fact that many actors have played this role before. I am just portraying the role according to my ideas of the Lord Shiva. I am a devotee of Shiva and have offered prayers since childhood. I am portraying Shiva not simply as a God but also as someone with feelings. It will be different from what others have done till now” said the actor.
The serial has been directed by Amit Das and will show the three avatars of Goddess Durga namely Sati, Parvati and Mahishasuramardini.
The serial starts from 15th December, Monday to Saturday at 8pm. The serial promises to be a treat for the audience and will entertain them for sure.
