Producer Siddharth Kumar Tiwary's Swastik Production's ongoing epic show Mahabharat which airs on Star Plus, is grabbing the eyeballs of the viewer's towards the show through its concept and storyline.

TellyBuzz got in touch with one of the famous characters of show namely Dhritarashtra which is essayed by the actor Anoop Singh Thakur. Being a young lad who is just 23 year old, he is playing the character of a father and a grandfather Dhritrashtra in the show.

On the same we got in touch with him to know more about on how is it being a part of the show Mahabharat, essaying the role of Dhritrashtra, the difficulties that he is facing and much more in conversation with TellyBuzz.

Read on to know on what he has to say...

When we asked Anoop on how is it being a part of the show Mahabharat, he shares, "It is fantastic being a part of this show, the way it is shaping up and the positivity around on the sets is really encouraging for us actors. We are blessed and overwhelmed with the positive response that we are receiving for our show and our acting skills. The best part of the show is that it is tele casted worldwide and it is also dubbed in various regional languages for better connect."

Anoop is been called as Pitashree in the show, on the same when we asked him on how does it feel on being called as a Pitashree at such a ripe age, he elaborates saying, "I am playing the role of Dhritrashtra who is the father of 100 Kauravas and that's why they call me Pitashree, which is all fine with me (smiles)."

He says that it is very challenging for a 23 year old boy to portray such an elderly character of Dhritrashtra, "It is very challenging for me to play the role of Dhritashtra, where I am playing a father and a grandfather too in the show, where as in my real life I am just 23 year old boy. I have been working on the character since the past three years and it has various shades to it which makes it really interesting for me. I have taken the initiative to study the body language of an elderly role than my age and it has helped me in the show too."

We have heard that even when Anoop is not in his character, he tends to call his on-screen son's 'Putra' even when on off-screen. We asked him on what makes him to do so and he says, "No, actually I am so involved into my character that I have got a hang of calling my on-screen children's as 'Putra' while being on off-screen too."

He has been receiving a very good feedback from the audience towards his character. When we asked him on how he feels about the positive feedback, he says, "I am receiving a very good feedback from the audience for my role, and that is very encouraging for me. Dhritrashtra has lots of shades to portray and I am receiving a worldwide appreciation for my character. This kind of appreciation makes me work even more harder and makes me do proper justice to my character and really be perceived as the real Dhritrashtra."

Well definitely it is really difficult to portray such an elderly character of Dhritrashtra at a ripe age of 23. Kudos to Anoop Singh Thakur for essaying the role so beautifully.

We wish him all the very best for his future endeavors.
