Mumbai, May 19, 2017 (Online News India): Star Plus’s Aarambh has been grabbing a lot of eyeballs due to its magnificent cast which includes Karthika Nair, Rajneesh Duggal and Tanuja Mukherji in pivotal roles. The show, which is written by K.V Vijayendra Prasad, of Bahubali fame, and produced by Rose Productions of Goldie Behl and Srishti Arya is being shot in a larger-than-life manner with a lot of money being spent on VFX.

The lead actress Karthika Nair, who is a very successful actress down South, is making her television debut with Aarambh and is very excited about the show. However, she was initially very apprehensive about taking up a TV show because of the long, stretched formats and the fear of stepping out of her comfort zone and taking up something that has a longer commitment. Goldie Behl had personally chosen Karthika to play the character of Devsena because he was looking for someone with South Indian attributes, and Karthika fit the role perfectly.

“I don’t work for money", says Karthika. “I do only quality work, and for me, the script is all that matters. When Goldie Sir initially approached me, I rejected it because I did not want to work in television. However, after I read the script, my approach changed completely. For an actress to let go of such an amazing script would be blasphemous.", she added.

One of the main reasons why Karthika agreed to do the show was because it was a finite series, and also a very challenging and progressive character. She plays the character of Devsena, who is the princess – soon to be queen, of the Dravidian clan, and the warrior who saves her clan from the attacks of the Aryans.
