Is Mahabharat HISTORY or MYTHOLOGY?
We, at @i_ambuddha are grateful to the almighty to be presenting Padma Bhushan Dr. SL Bhyrappa’s ‘modern classic’:
PARVA - AN EPIC TALE OF DHARMA.
There is a reason why PARVA is called ‘Masterpiece of masterpieces’.
Moreover, the actress and producer, Pallavi Joshi said, "It is a great honour to be sitting next to living legend, S. L. Bhyrappa. I never dreamt of this day ever, and happy as I am to be making 'Parva' into a film, I want to understand the mammoth responsibility that we have on our shoulders. It is not easy handling a subject like Parva, handling the vision of the author. Do you know a trip of self-exploration to our films? Parva as a film that will be made in 3 parts, but will also be making this film in two languages, Kannada and English. It is great to have our friend, Prakash Belawadi as co-writer for our project."
Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri's Parva will be based on a book named Parva that is written by S. L. Bhyrappa in the Kannada language. It is a retelling of the Sanskrit epic Mahabharata that is narrated through the personal reflections of the principal characters. The novel is widely praised and acclaimed as a modern classic.
While Agnihotri will be making an ambitious film inspired by the Mahabharata, filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari is currently working on the retelling of the Ramayana with Ranbir Kapoor and Sai Pallavi in the lead.
Vivek Agnihotri's last film was 'The Vaccine War' which was released in theatres in September. The film is based on the scientists who contributed in developing the Covaxin during the COVID-19 pandemic.
