Zee TV’s upcoming periodic drama Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani which begins on July 27th, recently celebrated its launch. The story of a king and a commoner has been the talk of the town since it’s inception earlier this year.
While the story may appear to be the typical tale of a girl and a boy who eventually fall in love, there is more to than what meets the eye in Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani. The 1940’s tale has been created with utmost precision. To showcase a realistic view of the time period, the makers have shot the show across various locations in Rajasthan as well as setting up an expensive set on the outskirts of Mumbai.
Talking about his role of Rana Indravardhan Singh Deo at the launch, Siddhant said,
“Ranaji was an ideal prince, who after going through an intense past has become a tense person. However, he is still capable of being a prince and knows his sense of responsibility towards all.”
Asked what preparation he did for his role, he said,
“Kings of that time had to project themselves in a certain way because of the formalities they lived in. So I had to learn some action sequences, horse riding, and diction.”
Leads Siddhant Karnick and Drashti Dhami were joined by actors Anita Raj, Darshan Zariwala, and Akshay Anand at the launch. To give a promising start to the event, Drashti and Siddhant performed a dance drama sequence based upon the theme of the show. The whole team was seen in their respective avatars donning period outfits, specially designed for them.
