In the show, Ishant will be seen essaying the character of Shiva’s first avatar ‘Piplad’. The 12-year-old actor confirmed saying, “I will be playing the role of Piplad, which is one of the avatar Shiv Bhagwan. I have always seen devotees worshipping pipal’s tree and not many devotees know why do we worship it including me. I am very lucky that I got this role as the stories of Lord Ganesha and Shiva not only interests me but with this show, I get to understand those stories deeply and this track will also help everyone understand the hidden story behind worshipping the Pipal tree. Also, this is my second show with Sony Entertainment Television, I loved my previous show Sankat Mochan Hanumaan and I am enjoying shooting with entire cast a lot as much as I enjoyed playing Hanuman previously.”
