The Rise of Anti-hero: Sourabh Raaj Jain!

Talk about, throwing shade!!

Winning far and wide recognition for portraying the Hindu Lords: Vishnu, Krishna, and Mahadev in immensely successful shows, it came as a surprise when actor Sourabh Raaj Jain was roped in to play a negative role in Porus. This, was followed by a pivotal negative character in Chandragupta Maurya.
Apparently the actor who can get under the skin of his characters by playing diametrically roles is garnering positive feedback from the audiences for his negative character. Speaking of negative roles, Television is following Bollywood's suit. The villains of 80's and 90's were the cult figures and are remembered till date. Recently, In Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Magnum Opus, Padmavaat,  Ranveer Singh emerged as an anti-hero (not to be confused with a villian) carrying film's entire weight on his chiseled shoulders. 

Coming back, Siddharth Kumar Tewary's promising historical series Chandragupta Maurya, boasts of an ensemble cast including Sourabh. The actor is basking under the limelight of hatred by fans who think of his character as a reprisal to Ranveer's role of Khilji in Padmavat.

The actor shares, 'The audience loved me as Lord Krishna and now they love to hate me as Dhananand. It is a 360 degree shift but I'm loving it. A typical masala pot boiler Bollywood film is incomplete without a villain and by villain I'm talking about Pran sahab, Mogambo, Gabbar who went on to become legends. Their roles were imperative to the story-line & despite throwing a negative shade, the films were complete because of their presence. I'm loving the feedback I'm getting and in fact many are saying that the transition is unbelievable.'

Magadh_sundari 2018-12-05T00:49:16Z Sourabh Raaj Jain is doing a flawless job as Dhananand, I have seen him in grey shades earlier. But now this is one totally different character, and Sourabh is giving the best performance of his career. If someone tells me to choose one character which is his best after his perfect portrayal of Krishna, it would be Dhananand
