New Delhi, June 18 (IANS) Television tycoon Ekta Kapoor is in no mood to take any risk for her biggest project “Kahani Hamare Mahabharat Ki”. She has had seven astrologers flown in to zero in on a suitable infant to play young Lord Krishna in the series. Apparently, Ekta deputed a large team from her production department to hunt for details about kids who were born on Janmashtami, the birthday of Lord Krishna, last year.
After a search of almost three months, the team collected a list of over 150 infants out of which only 25 kids were short-listed, a release stated. The astrologers checked their horoscopes and finally a child named Krish was selected to play the role.
Balaji Telefilms plans to shoot on a large scale the episode in which their on-screen Lord Krishna would be born.
