These days a serial UPNISHAD GANGA which airs on DD every Sunday at 10:00 am is becoming quite popular with the audience due to its unique style of presentation and the rareness of content. The serial which is produced by Chinmaya Mission and directed by Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi will now have actor Zakir Hussain in the role of Mughal Prince Dara Shikoh coming Sunday i.e. 7th April.
“Till date everyone knew Dara Shikoh as elder brother of Aurangzeb but after watching this episode they will realize how very righteous and able he was. On the command of his guru Miya Mir he translated the teachings of “Upanishad” from Sanskrit to Persian says Zakir Hussain.
Zakir Hussain though has portrayed the roles of Ratnakar, Aghori Baba Avdhoot and Yaksha in the serial but his favorite role in the serial has been that of Dara Shikoh. He says he had pleasure time acting this character because the way it is put forth brings out a new dimension of the character which hardly anybody knows!
