Aimed at bringing compelling Indian tales with universal relevance to an increasingly interested global audience, Sony Entertainment Television (SET) launches its sub-brand ‘SET Originals’ with ‘Prithvi Vallabh’ being the first production to premier under this brand. With SET Originals, the channel will collaborate with new creative storytellers to offer premium, fresh and finite content with superior production values and narratives that have a global appeal.
The show will mark the debut of Anirudh Pathak of Writers’ Galaxy as a Producer and will enrapture viewers by its breathtaking visuals, canvas, and scale of production. A finite series, Prithvi Vallabh narrates a tale of two archrival warriors; Prithvi and Mrinal. Prithvi, the heir of the Malwa dynasty, is an advocator of the ‘philosophy of humanism’, while Mrinal, the princess warrior of Manyakhet, is ‘born out of pure vengeance’. It is a unique story that starts with hatred on a battlefield and ends up becoming a grand love story. The show will take us to an era where various Indian states were at constant war for territorial expansion. In this era of continual struggle, Prithvi Vallabh’s philosophy of ‘live and let live’ forms the crux of the show, which is relevant even today. It has both, a sense of history and a mystery of those times.
The show’s stellar star cast includes Ashish Sharma as Prithvi, Sonarika Bhadoria as Mrinal, Pawan Chopra as Singhdant, Shalini Kapoor as Rajmata, Alefia Kapadia as Savita, Jitin Gulatias Tailap, Piyali Munshi as Jakkala, Surendra Pal as Vinayaditya, amongst others.
