TellyBuzz spoke to Rishi to know more about his character, costumes, preparations and much more.
Sounding excited about playing Nahush in the show, Rishi tells us, "It's a very interesting character as Nahush is Mahadev's son in law. Initially he will be positive but it would be interesting to see how things turn and then he will be shown as negative. So, I have lots of scope to perform. I am quite excited about entering the show and playing this character. It's going to be a very unique and a difficult experience as well."
When it comes to acting, Rishi says that he acts with simplicity but Nahush's character is little loud and has been a tough experience for him, "I am a natural actor and here everything is so loud and I have to wear lots of jewellery and a heavy costume. Acting so loud is very difficult for me. So, it's little difficult experience for me."
When asked about the preparations done by Rishi for playing this character, he added, "I belong to the theatre and have a Hindi background so it's not a big deal for me to play this character. Being a theater actor, I have a good command over Hindi language and now I have got a chance to speak pure Hindi with this show. I am quite confident that I can do it. Initially, I thought that I might not be able to do it and I was little uncomfortable on the first day of my shoot. The production people and everyone here are good to work with."
Rishi is finding it difficult to shoot with heavy costumes and jewellery as he says, "The costumes and jewellery are so heavy that I am not enjoying it. We can't even change in between the shots because it takes a lot of time to dress up in the same costumes and apply the same make up again."
So has the actor seen the few episodes of the show Rishi says, "Not really! I have seen few episodes before as few of my friends are acting in the show and producer Nikhil is also my good friend so I have seen few episodes. It's a good experience while shooting for the show."
We wish you all the very best Rishi!
