07 December 2020, Mumbai: Popular Actress Rati Pandey, who is playing the multifaceted Devi in Dangal Tv’s Devi Adi Parashakti will be seen challenging Shumbh Asur to a duel when he wants to marry her. Overwhelmed by Devi’s beauty, Shumbh tries to possess Devi and her beauty. Shumbha sends the demon Sugriva to court Parvati, but she rejects his advances. It was then decided by the demonic brothers, Sumbha and Nisumbha, that if Parvati would not come willingly, they would have to abduct her leading to this epic battle.
Actress Rati Pandey comments, “This is a very important part of our mythology and I want to inspire every girl to not buckle down and stand up for what is right. Don’t give up without a fight and we will always be victorious. When Devi is pursued by Shumbh Asur, she challenges him to fight because she wants to prove that nothing can happen without consent. An epic battle is fought between the two and this signifies that right wins over wrong. I personally believe in this sequence not only because of the thought associated with this but also because I had to channelise positivity to portray Devi in this battle.”
Watch Devi take on the demonic brothers Shumbh and Nishumbh only on Dangal TV’s Devi Adi Parashakti, Monday to Saturday, 9:00 pm.
