Year 2002, saw an unprecedented rise of Mihir as he essayed the role of Doctor Rahul Mehra in Sanjivani on Star Plus.
Sanjivani had a successful run for about three years and Mihir Mishra became an over night sensation. He gave it all to his character who went on to become a quintessential lover boy, a friend and someone everyone looked up to.
His success because his own enemy because post Sanjivani, Mihir kind off got lost.
Guess the persona of Doctor Rahul Mehra became lager than life as no one could see him beyond that.
A lot of makers approached him with similar roles, something that Mihir Mishar was not willing to go with and according to me he was right in his own way.
Now instead of applauding him for what he had achieved, people started saying that Mihir has become too choosy, while others derived sadistic pleasure and wrote him off.
However, the reality was, that Mihir was the same actor who had the same dedication towards his craft as all he wanted was, to do good work. Being good is tough, but then that’s all that Mihir every knew.
Post the lull came in shows like Kumkum, Hotel Kingston, Saat Phere, Dil Se Diya Vachan, Ek Nayi Chhoti Si Zindagi, Humse Hai Life, Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai and many more but none could to justice to his talent.
Year 2014, one saw him essaying the role of Akash Roy / Akram Rehmat Khan in Ek Hasina Thi, once again on Star Plus.
With Ek Hasina Thi, it was as though a star was re-born. Mihir gave this character a razor sharp edge and once again proved that a talented actor is never done.
Dreams do not have an expiry date, one must take a deep breath and try again; well that’s how I would like to sum up Mihir.
Here’s wishing this talented actor all the best and we do hope to see him in many more part breaking characters in the near future.
