Ashish Vidyarthi’s character in the serial is reported to be similar to Big B’s role in Sarkaar. When asked to comment on this comparison, Ashish Vidyarthi says, “Amitabh Bachchan played the patriarch of the family and so am I in the serial. So all the comparisons that are being made is valid only to that extent, I would say”.
Elaborating more on his character of Rudra Pratap, the actor comments, “The interesting fact about this character is that you cannot call him as a totally negative person as it is a delineated character, and above all, it allows me to bring out various shades in the same character”. Adding on he says, “To make it short, I can say that Waaris showcases on the various relations in a family and also depicts the realities of life where everyone juggles to get a hold on the empire…”
Here’s wishing the new Don of Television a hearty welcome!!
