Ganesh Leela is a mythological series based on the life of Lord Ganesha. The series was broadcasted on Sahara ONE. Ganesh Leela is a Dheeraj Kumar and a Creative Eye production. It portrayed the entire life of Lord Ganesha in detail, starting right from his birth. When Parvati, wife of Lord Shiva, expresses her desire for a child in front of Shiva, he suggests her to do a 'Punyak Vrat' lasting an entire year. So, with the help of a purohit named Sanatkumar, Parvati duly begins with her affliction. After she successfully completed her Vrata Anushthan, God Paratpar appears in front of her and grants her a blessing that he himself will come to earth as her son.
Later Parvati produces a cute boy from a form of cosmic energy coming out of her body. She treats him as her son and names him Ganesh. One day, when Parvati had to go outside, she told Ganesh to watch over and protect the home while she was gone. What happened after that is really interesting and astonishing. Lord Shiva was unaware of the fact that his own son is guarding the home as Shiva and Ganesh didn’t really know each other at the time. So, when Shiva reaches home, Ganesh tries to stop him from entering the house.
Consequently, they end up in a fight which results in Lord Shiva furiously separating Ganesh’s head from his body. Later, when Parvati returns home, Shiva finds out that the boy he just beheaded was none other than his own son. Thus, Shiva brings an elephant’s head and fits it on Ganesh’s body. That’s how Ganesh gets an elephant head. Different avatars of Lord Ganesha were shown in the series. It also showed different stories related to those avatars.
The stories were presented in such a way that each story has a moral to be learned. The role of Lord Shiva is played by Mukesh Solanki, and that of Parvati is played by Samragyi Nema.
