'Buddha' will be aired on Zee TV having around 50 episodes.

The series will be a bio pic of one of the greatest Indian personalities ever, Buddha. It is based on the historical facts and will tell the story of prince Siddharth and his dramatic transition into 'Buddha'.

Buddha will be produced at a mega scale involving authentic recreation of the period details. Each episode has been planned as a one hour film.

"Spice Studios is committed to make Buddha. We know that it's not easy to make something of this significance and scale. Now we have the benefit of years of research on the subject. We realized that the scope of television today is larger than films and we wanted Buddha to reach out to the largest number of people possible. Only TV can give us that reach. Big names have contributed to this project and finally we are able to make it happen. "Says B.K Modi
