- Aarambh is the story of the rise and triumphs of Devasena
- Madhoo will play the role of Devasena's mother
- Karthika Nair (in lead role) and Tanuja also feature in the show
Actress Karthika Nair, daughter of former actress Radha, plays the lead role in Aarambh. Talking about how she was cast as small screen's Devasena, Karthika told news agency IANS: "When I heard the role and got to know that it has been written by K V Vijayendra Prasad sir, it was so amazing that I couldn't say no. It's rare for a lady to get such amazing role in the male-dominated industry. Also, it's just an eight-month-long project."
Bollywood actress Tanuja also features in the show, which is co-produced by Goldie Behl. Tanuja, who plays the role of Hahuma, says that the show tells "how and why a matriarchal society became a patriarchal one." She told IANS: "Aarambh is a different show as its story is unique. The basic topic that this show highlights is the matriarchal society during Dravidian clans. During that time, the ruler was the queen and everybody used to obey to her decisions. Men basically were the protectors and in the army. Women were also in the army, but they were the leaders. Today men are given more importance in the society, which should be balanced."
