It is now officially over. Of course, not the trend of mythological shows where one old mythological show after the other keeps poping for a rerun and has viewers hooked on to TV and not miss original programming.
But now, the part that is over is that two of the most popular epics, Ramayan and Mahabharat have both concluded their rerun.
Before all the other actors over the years played Lord Krishna, it was Nitish Bharadwaj that made the hugest impact playing the role in Mahabharat. In a recent interview with ETimes, when Bharadwaj was asked about the love and adulation, he said, “Once I was at a temple when a group of elderly women started blessing me. When I asked them the reason behind it, they said, ‘We know you just play the character of Lord Krishna on screen, but you must have some special qualities in you which is why the Lord himself chose you to portray his role.’ I must have done something good to get so much love from fans.”
He further added, “Sometimes people ask me to name their kids and to make them happy, I suggest some names. Then there are times when some people come up to me and say that they have named their kids Nitish. That makes me so happy. I feel blessed.”
