Actor Siddharth Arora, who will be seen playing the role of "modern" lord Krishna in upcoming TV show "Krishan Kanhaiya", says the "naughtiest" god is "different" from others as his life seems quite similar to a "common man".

The show is about a common man asking questions about the issues of his day-to-day life from God.

Siddharth, who shot for the opening sequence of the Sab TV show at the Red Fort here only last week, says that when he read stories about lord Krishna he found him "very different from other gods".

"He was the naughtiest. He was romantic. He did all those things which a common man would do, which probably we wouldn't expect our God to do. We can't see such things in lives of other gods. He did similar things that we do today," he added.

Siddharth has read a lot of books to play lord Krishna in the show. But he says his portrayal will have a more "modern" approach.

"I've read about lord Krishna. Maybe I don't have to wear the contemporary costumes most of the time in the show, but the essence needs to be the same. So I've read a book called 'Shri Krishna' in order to understand his whole life. Also, I've gone through Bhagavad Gita," he said.

The actor will be seen in a modern avatar, donning shirt and trousers.

"Not everybody expects to see god in such a modern look. So, to keep that essence of god and his body language, I had to make a perfect blend of the contemporary and modern look," he added.

"Krishan Kanhaiya", which will go on air in June end, replacing "Peterson Hill", will feature a unique god and man relationship, where the common man (Nikhil Ratnaparkhi) asks questions about his "not very successful and satisfying" life from lord Krishna.

Ethereal-Path 8 years ago I guess it will be better if producers pay for the staff relating to the movie (including hair stylist, make-up artist etc acc; to their requirement) and actors pay to their personal staff, if they have any.. this will be a better approach!

priyapiya 8 years ago Shouldn't The Production House Be Paying All Those Staff Who Does Thing Like Hair Style,Make Up,Dress Designing Etc... For The Actors Professionally?
Why Should The Actors Pay For All Those Staff Who Does There Make Up,Hair Style, Dress Desgining For There Professional Use?
It Is The Responsbility Of The Production House Not The Actor Resposbility.
The Actors Are Responsible To Pay There Staff Only If They Have Been Hiring Extra Staff For There Personal Reason,Not Professionally.
Personal Reasons For Example...

At Home

Children's Care Taker
Personal Hair Stylist (For Outing Or An Party)
Personal Make Stylist (For Outing Or An Party)

If They Need Staffs For Some Professional Reasons And If The Production House Demands It Then Why Should Actors Pay For All The Extra Staffs?
Please Explain...

Kai. 8 years ago i think the producers have their own make up artist / stylist for their films but top actors / actresses prefer to keep their private / personal one who tends to be expensive and is an additional cost for the producers!

let's see if actresses will agree with this arrangement..they would have far more staff than the men and their fees are much lesser compared to them!2012-07-24 13:13:29
