After a year, actor Kanan Malhotra is back on television with Swastik Productions’ Suryaputra Karn. He will play the role of king Yudhistir in the show.
The actor is excited about his stint in the show directed by Siddhart Kumar Tewary. “I always used to think mythological shows are never my cup of tea as it requires a different mind-set altogether. But when I got the offer this time I thought of taking it up. I felt as an actor I should take up new things and explore new avenues. The character Yudhistir has to offer a lot to an actor. Right now we are at Jhansi shooting in a treacherous climate with costume which is made of rubber and heavy jewellery. Believe me this is not easy. I feel the challenges are more in mythology and I am happy that I have taken this,” said the actor.
Kanan who has worked hard on his body language added, “Yudhistir’s nature is very calm and also at the same time he has a pleasant smile on his face. I am working on these aspects. There is a kind of stiffness which I have to maintain while playing the character on-screen because Yudhistir is supposed to be a great king. In real life, I am very spontaneous and fun loving. Therefore, on the set, I can feel the contrast.”
