Kahani Chandrakanta ki is the magical mega oeuvre fantasy costume drama that is produced and director by Sunil Agnihotri. Kahani Chandrakana Ki is inspired by babu Devki Nandan Khatri’s CHANDRAKANTA SANTITI.
It will begin telecast on Sahara One from Monday, 6th June 2011 at 8 PM everyday Monday to Friday. Comments the director producer Sunil Agnihotri, “Sahara One has a very strong reach in India, especially in the Hindi speaking belt. It has some very good shows on air. Besides, people at helm in Sahara are very supportive and have given me complete creative freedom. Together, we shall be able to create another landmark.”
It is the love story of Shiv Dutt’s daughter Kishori and Chandrakanta’s son Indrajeet. Because of the family feud it will have an overload of adventure with magical twists & turns. This fantasy drama is bringing to life the super successful characters of princess Chandrakanta, Kroor Singh, Pundit Jagannath, Badrinath etc under the banner of Sunil Agnihotri Production.
Adds Sunil, “Chandrakanta Santiti, in itself, is a huge product. No other fantasy story could match its magic, popularity or success. In any case costume Dramas – whether Historical, Mythological or Fantasies – have always been close to my heart. Their canvas is BIG and creating an aura around a different time zone is so very interesting. After a long break, once again we are bringing the similar thrill, shape shifting aiyyars & magic of tilism back at a higher level with more and better special effects through my favourite subject of costume drama.” Shooting of ‘Kahani Chandrakanta Ki,’ has been done at actual outdoor locations.
Director – Producer Sunil Agnihotri had begun his journey on Televisions with serial Chandrakanta which was telecast on DD-1. It took serial making to another level of class and grandeur. Sunil, who is associated with mega serial and success on television, had made history in the afternoons with serial Yug. His Betaal Pachisi gave tough competition to Krishna, where TRP’s favoured fantasy more than the Gods. Then his mythological Jai Ganesha on Zee was a treat to watch as far as Mythologies are concerned. His another fantasy serial Chandramukhi reigned at top position on DD1. Like his earlier mega opus Chandrakanta, this was also a complete costume drama. BLACK was on Paranormal activities, Aliens & extra-terrestrial and was made on an international canvas.
