India’s first global television series, Porus has successfully scored a milestone by airing 100 episodes.
Produced by Swastik Productions, the historical show was launched in November 2017 and has redefined the television content and set new benchmark in script, narratives, artwork and visuals, production design, costumes, characterization and performances. The show that unfolds the untold story of the greatest conqueror of the world, Alexander and the most spirited defender of India, Porus set in 350 BC has gained immense appreciation for its unique storytelling, larger than life sets and scintillating performance by its actors. Porus has now successfully completed 100 episodes and the team celebrated this wonderful journey on the sets.
The show’s stellar star cast includes Laksh as Porus, Rohit Purohit as Alexander, Rati Pandey as Anusuya, Aditya Redij as Bamini, Suhani Dhanki as Laachi, Praneet Bhatt as Darius, Vishal Patni as Farus, Amandeep Singh as Shivdutt, Chirag Jani as Darsyu amongst others, who’ve made Porus a grand success with their power-packed performance.
Speaking about the show and its success, Laksh who essays the role of Porus quipped, “I’m really glad about how far we’ve journeyed together. Porus is very close to me and as an actor it went on to evolve me further. It has been a great journey and we have worked hard to reach here. The response that the show and particularly my character has received is overwhelming. When we started off, we didn’t anticipate the success, we believed in the vision of Swastik Production and Sony Entertainment Television in providing audience a show that has never been attempted before on Indian television. Today on completing 100 episodes, all the efforts we as a team have put it seems worth it – right from action, accent, horse riding, swimming, etc training to being stationed in Umargaon to meet the shoot schedule. It gives us a sense of both, achievement and satisfaction. I am really grateful to Siddharth Kumar Tewary and the whole team for all the efforts that they have put in to make the show a huge success.”
Siddharth Kumar Tewary says, “I am feeling so happy and blessed that the show has hit 100 episodes. Porus reflects our passion, creativity and hard work and every time we make it a point to go several notches up from our previous creations. For Porus, we spent a lot of time on pre-production, diction, training and recreating the golden era. I am proud of my team who have been consistent in creating what Porus is today. The audience’ appreciation and the success of the show is a testament of our endeavor to use technology to tell great stories in a refreshing manner. We have set the benchmark very high for ourselves and this is just the beginning.”
Hearty congratulations and best wishes to the team!
