With an upcoming release, the actor is looking forward to seeing the audience's response to his character of a Bihari Politician. Sohum shares, "I am very excited for the release of Maharani. This indeed was a much-awaited one! Playing Bheema Bharti demanded to unleash a side of me that I had never met with and it was possible under the guidance of Subhash Sir. With Maharani, I have continued to try something really out of the box. I hope the viewers enjoy it."

He is donning the role of a politician for the first time and also worked on getting the Bihari dialect right. Sharing screen with Huma Qureshi in the show — it is going to be a visual treat and the anticipation among his fans and audiences crosses all bounds.
From playing a role of a Maharashtrian in Tumbbad to playing a Gujarati in the upcoming film Big Bull and now a Bihari Politician, Sohum's calibre allows him to explore it all. He is that actor, every filmmaker can count on for slipping into the skin just right.
