The first shot of the mythological show was taken on the occasion of Buddha Purnima at the Film City in Mumbai
Being produced by Spice Global, Buddha is based on the life of Prince Siddhartha and his transition from being a prince to Buddha. Calling Buddha a personal commitment to himself, BK Modi, Global Chairman, Spice Global, said “Buddha is perhaps the most important personality to have been born in the recorded history of India and we are sparing no effort in making this special. Today’s youth has to be free from all prejudices and hypocrisy. They need to connect with the youth globally to spread the message of non-violence and equality.”
He added, “We have put together a very competent cast and are close to finding the actor who is going to play the role of Buddha. This epic will help the youth to be fearless and move confidently for success in their lives.” The first shot of the serial was delivered by actors Kabir Bedi and Sameer Dharmadhikari, who play important roles in the serial.
