Sony SAB's Dharm Yoddha Garud has kept its audience engaged with the intriguing storyline of Garud and his journey to become Lord Vishnu's vahak. That's not all! The show also reiterates the mythology, significance, and teachings in Garud's life.
Currently, in Dharm Yoddha Garud, audiences are witnessing the story of Devi Durga and how the nine forms came into existence. Continuing with its top-notch storyline, the viewers will witness the entry of Tarakasur into the show. Tarakasur, one of the strongest asura in mythology, will be played by Javed Pathan. While sharing excitement about this role, Javed said, "It is always an actor's dream for the audiences to remember them by their character played on-screen. I'm fortunate and delighted to play such a strong negative character in Dharm Yoddha Garud."
He said about his entry in the show, "I've worked in mythological shows before, but my character of Tarkasur in the show is a strong negative character and the presence of the character on screen is impactful. Presently, the story is around Mata Parvati and as mythology narrates the role of Taraksur, I'll be playing an important character who deftly took a blessing from Lord Brahma but was later killed by Lord Kartikey. Our director is working hard to portray my character and this storyline as larger than life, and I'm glad to be associated with such a diligent lot of people."
In Mythological shows, a character requires a lot of preparation as you need a creative understanding of what they must have thought or felt in that era. Conveying the same, Javed Pathan said, "The important things are personality and body language so that the character comes out as it should. Because this is not a normal show, with mythological dramas, it becomes a great responsibility of an actor to portray the character from the past as it was mentioned so that the people can relate to it. Tarakasur was a king, hence I had to imagine and practice how he would walk, his voice, the way he would speak, and his expressions. With every scene, my director sir helps me throughout how I can play the character powerfully."
Concluding the conversation with a description of his look, he said, "I take around 3-3.5 hours to get ready. My entire body must be painted first, then the wig and make-up. I wear a bright-coloured dhoti and heavy gold jewellery. Even after pack-up, I take almost 45-50 mins to become Javed again. Even though it's a tiring process, I enjoy it throughout. I'm fortunate to be a part of Dharm Yoddha Garud, as not everyone gets to portray strong mythological characters."
