Rajshri Media Pvt Ltd, the digital entertainment and new media arm of the 60-year old Rajshri group, is all set to premiere B R Chopra’s TV Epic ‘Mahabharata’ on its website.

Commenting on the launch, Ravi Chopra, Producer and Director of the epic TV series, said, “While directing Mahabharata, I became convinced that this epic is not for us Indians alone, but for the whole wide world. Its timeless message can restore the eternal values of peace and harmony in the strife torn world of today. I am delighted at the initiative taken by Rajshri.com to make this memorable piece of work available to viewers worldwide.”

Rajjat A Barjatya, Managing Director, Rajshri Media, the digital media licensees of Mahabharata, said, “It is our privilege to be given the opportunity to showcase this great Indian epic and the most successful Indian TV show ever to a global Indian and non-Indian audience through the Internet.
