Sherrin Varghese turns Krishna with Jaya, a 20th century soap opera

“JAYA,” is a 21st century rock opera that skillfully weaves the epic tales of the ‘Mahabharata’ through song, music, dance, and martial arts. This dynamic presentation, set in English, unfolds the major events of the ancient epic in a dramatic montage style, providing a fresh perspective through the lens of Yudhishthira, the eldest Pandava brother and the main protagonist.

Sherrin Varghese, with his extraordinary vocal prowess and captivating stage presence, embodies the essence of Krishna, bringing to life the divine advisor and charioteer to Arjuna, guiding audiences through the timeless saga of love, duty, and cosmic balance.

The talented cast, including Sherrin Varghese, Tirthankar Poddar, Vikrant Chaturvedi, Megan Murray, Asif Ali Beg, Varun Narayan, Keshia B, Sid Makkar, Yuvraj Bajwa, Ujjayinee Roy, Shagun Trisal, Vernon D’szouza, Mehmood Curmally, and others, collaborates harmoniously to bring this celestial tale to life.

“JAYA” is not merely a performance; it is a transformative experience that bridges the gap between the eternal and the contemporary.
