Shrimad Ramayan is the retelling of the epic saga of Lord Ram and airs on Sony Entertainment Television.

Sony Entertainment Television’s divine saga, Shrimad Ramayan, has been following the journey of Lord Ram, Mata Sita, and Lakshman during their Vanvas. The recent introduction of Lord Hanuman to the narrative has further added a new dimension to the story. Moving to a pivotal chapter of the show, viewers will now see Lanka King Ravan’s sister, Shurpanakha, in the forefront, who will lay the foundation of the longest battle between Lord Ram and Lanka King Ravan. Playing this complex character will be Sangeeta Odwani, who is quite excited to portray a new dimension of this character.

Talking about the intensity of the story and portraying such a significant character, Sangeeta Odwani said, “Portraying Shurpanakha is a delicate dance between embodying her raw power and navigating the complexities of her vulnerabilities. It's about unveiling the layers of a misunderstood character, revealing the strength in her scars and the depth in her desires.” She further added, “Playing this character demands a nuanced approach that delves deep into her psyche. It's about embracing her formidable presence while also unravelling the pain and longing that lie beneath her fierce exterior. As an actor, it's a journey of exploration, peeling back the layers of this complex character to reveal the humanity within, allowing audiences to see her not just as a villain, but as a multifaceted individual with her own struggles."

Coming to her character in the epic saga, for the unversed, when Ram and his entourage are taking a stroll in the forest, Shurpanakha notices Lord Ram, who has immersed himself in deep meditation. Smitten by his demeanour, she makes an advance towards him but he firmly states his devotion towards his beloved wife, Mata Sita, and rejects Shurpanakha’s advances. In the wrath of Shurpanakha’s rage, frustration, and jealousy, Lakshman intervenes, but the consequences of his actions are unknown to him.

Shrimad Ramayan starring Sujay Reu, Prachi Bansal, Basant Bhatt, Nikitin Dheer, among others, airs from Monday to Friday at 9:00 PM, only on Sony Entertainment Television.
