TV actor Gautam Rode is going out of his way to perfect his look for the show "Mahakumbh" -- even if it means tanning his body naturally to match the requirements.
Gautam is playing the protagonist Rudra -- a savior and superhero -- in the show, which has been shot in various locations in India and abroad.
Rather than going the usual way and using make-up, the actor got tanned naturally to avoid looking as fair as he is in real life.
If one goes by the first poster of the show, Gautam has also worked very hard on his physique to get into his character.
The show, which will go on air on Life OK starting Dec 15, will "unfold an unheard story of a legend with powers unmatchable". It is said to be an amalgamation of contemporary and period drama because even though the main setting is modern, it has excerpts of the past.
