There are rumors floating around that Ram Kapoor will play the role of the blind Dhrithrashtra in Ekta Kapoor’s Mahabharat. However, when we spoke to the talented actor about the same, he denied being part of the mega 9X epic.
He further denied the possibility of him re-entering Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi as Jas Thakral. “That character failed, as he was too sophisticated and quirky for the Indian public to digest”, opines the actor. On his long television innings Ram remarked, “It’s been 10 years now. I have learnt a lot. Kasamh Se would have to be my best show till date”.He seemed a bit irritated on the constant media speculation. “Sometimes you guys know more about me than even I do”, says Ram with a grin. According to Ram, being popular has its flip side too. “You loose your freedom to do your own thing. You are constantly under public scrutiny”, states the actor.
As he signed off, we could not help but ask what he was doing about his excess weight. Ram fired back, “I have invested in a treadmill and am following a strict diet plan”.
