The stories of Hatim are not new to Indian viewers as there have been umpteen TV shows and films on the character. But Life OK has now taken the onus upon themselves to recreate the magic of Hatim from a different perspective. And to produce this magnum-opus series have come in Nikhil Sinha’s Triangle Films, who are the makers of the successful Devon Ke Dev.. Mahadev on Life OK.
As part of the cast, noted film and television actor Chandan Anand, who was seen in Bollywood films like Oye Lucky Lucky Oye and Love Aaj Kal, will play the main antagonist Zargham who will challenge Hatim at every step.
Last seen on television in Yeh Pyar Na Hoga Kam (Colors), the talented actor talked about the character he plays and his experience shooting for The Adventures of Hatim at a press briefing recently.
“Well, it has been a great experience shooting for the show so far, and I am sure it will be a hit amongst the masses. I have personally seen how the Indian audience is attracted to fantasies such as the Hobbit and the Lord Of The Rings. I am sure that this show will be a huge success, not only in the western region but also in the northern and the eastern part of India. It will in all probability attract audiences in the age group of 5 to 50 as it is smartly placed in the 8 pm time slot,” he observed.
Chandan further expressed the challenges he faced playing a super villain in the show.
“I play a super villain who can fly, kill lakhs of people, rise out of mercury and disguise himself into many forms. The character has been obviously difficult to essay, as Zargham is not a normal human being. It is indeed challenging for me to understand the gestures of this super villain. I had to practice a lot modulating my voice to play the character that bears the ‘super” tag to the villain,” he added.
The fine-looking actor claimed that it would be a team effort that will make the show a hit. “Right from the spot boy to the guys in the CG department to the directors and producers, we are striving hard for the success of Hatim and it is bound to be a super-hit show in the fantasy genre across all channels.”
Finally asking his fans to have a dekho of the serial, he averred, “Ek baar Hatim dekho…aur mera wada hai ki aap baar baar dekhte rahoge.”
We too look forward to… Hatim!!
