Model turned actor Arav Chowdhary has a big task at hand, having been selected for essaying the role of Bhishma Pitamah for Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s upcoming show, “Mahabharat”, the actor will have a tough time matching up to the standards of actor Mukesh Khanna, who had essayed the similar character years back in B R Chopra’s epic “Mahabharat”.
Graduating from Hollywood Film Institute, Arav has featured in quite a few movies like “Dhoom” and “Laado”, which went on to win the national award. His last show for the small screen was “Gulaal”, which concluded recently.
“Mahabharat” has been in the making for three long years and is yet to hit the small screen. The show will highlight the life of Bhishma Pitamah ranging from 18 years to 75 years. The show seems likely to be aired as soon as the forthcoming IPL series ends and will be a daily show unlike the previous versions which were weekly affairs.
