The legend of Hanuman by Hotstar Specials narrates the unseen journey of the God
The legend of Hanuman presented by Hostar Specials tells the unseen journey of our beloved God Hanuman. From slaying demons to burning down Lanka, our God is being admired and worshipped by billions of people across the world. His extraordinary devotion to Lord Ram and his acts of righteousness are some of the unique qualities that make him an inspiration. But, there is so much more to his journey of self-discovery when the humble and pure-hearted vaanara forgot about his divinity. It was the people around him who made him realize the God in him.
The 13 episodes mythological animation series is produced by Graphic India and created by Charuvi P. Singhal, Sharad Devarajan, and Jeevan J. Kang. The series has been directed by Navin John and Jeevan J Kang and has been written by Sarwat Chaddha, Arshad Syed, Sharad Devarajan, and Ashwin Pande. The series is scheduled to be streamed in 7 Indian languages including Hindi, Bengali, Telegu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and Marathi on January 29, 2021, on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.
Sharad Kelkar who lends his voice as the sootradhar said, “Most of us have grown up either listening to tales of Lord Hanuman or watching it on television. Interestingly, we know little about His formative years. The legend of Hanuman is a visually rich tale of a God who forgot who He was, and believed He was just a vaanara. As a sootradhar, it’s my privilege to lend my voice in a way that ties that story together; it’s been a truly unique experience. I think this story will inspire people to believe that the true measure of a being is not defined by power, but from the faith, courage, and compassion.”
Sharad Devarajan, Co-founder at Graphic India said, “For the first time, the grandeur of the epic world of Hanuman and the mythical beings of Gods, demons, forest creatures, spirits, and anthropomorphic clans, will be visualized through high-quality animation, creating an animated event that we hope will transcend ages and speak to all generations who have held this hero in our hearts. We are honored and humbled to work with the amazing team at Disney+ Hotstar to make this dream project a reality.”
