Mumbai: COLORS’ new magnum opus ‘Shiv Shakti – Tap Tyag Tandav’ revolves around two of the revered deities – Shiv and Shakti. It portrays their journey of duty, sacrifice, and separation that leads to tap, tyag, and tandav. Having curated a show in the mythological genre on an extravagant canvas earlier, COLORS and Siddharth Kumar Tewary have teamed up yet again for a visually stunning saga. Starring Ram Yashvardhan and Subha Rajput in the roles of Shiv and Shakti respectively, the upcoming show captures the journey of two divine entities, who share an inseparable bond spanning across eras. Enriched with the finest VFX and soulful music, ‘Shiv Shakti – Tap Tyag Tandav’ created and produced by Tewary’s Swastik Productions, premieres on 19 June and will air every Monday to Friday at 8 PM only on COLORS.
Talking about the show, Viacom18’s Shital Iyer said, “The mythology genre has invariably garnered tremendous popularity and has laid the foundation for television’s realm. Over the years, we have witnessed how this genre has been a constant favourite among viewers across all demographics. Shows rooted in mythology foster a sense of cohesive viewing experience, and we are thrilled to bring back this genre on COLORS, presenting our rendition of the universe's first love story - Shiv Shakti. Partnering with Siddharth Kumar Tewary yet again is wonderful as we reinforce our imaginative forces together to give the audience a magnum opus. With the introduction of this show to our diverse content slate, we aim to fortify our weekday primetime and we are confident that it will make a significant impact in the 8:00 pm slot.”
'Shiv Shakti’ encapsulates the intense journey of Lord Shiva and Goddess Shakti’s love, duty and sacrifice. Their efforts and celebration of transforming one another is an inspiration to every love story in the world. While Shiv signifies the natural state of consciousness, Shakti marks the birth of nature. He is the destroyer, and she is the nurturer. These two supreme energies complete each other. For the first time, Shiv Shakti’s love story will be narrated from their point of view in the upcoming saga.
Tewary said, “I have always believed that our mythology is an integral part of the history, legacy, and culture of our country. Swastik Productions is proud to have remodelled the mythology genre on television with shows that have enthralled viewers over the years. With the love of the audience, we now offer Shiv Shakti – Tap Tyag Tandav, that portrays the true meaning of duty in love. Through this show, we are transporting viewers to a divine, mystical, and fantastical world of two of our biggest Gods & Goddesses. With its pure story, raw emotions, original music, and impressive visuals, we aim to provide viewers an unforgettable experience. We are thrilled to be collaborating with COLORS and combining our creative prowess to embark on a magnificent journey of Shiv Shakti."
