New Delhi: Delhi boy Rohan Gandotra has been chosen to play the malelead in Ashotush Gowariker's TV debut show 'Everest'.
Rohan will play Aakash Joshi, a dare-devil journalist, on the show and will be seen making a documentary on the highest mountain range. The actor has been selected from over 200 people to play the role of Aakash Joshi and had to undergo around seven look tests along with an acting and rigorous mountaineering workshops.
"I was working in Delhi after completing my Bachelors in Computers and somewhere I was not enjoying doing what I was doing, that is when I decided to try my hand at modelling and started off doing print ads in Delhi.
"It was during this time that I was called for an audition by Ashutosh sir's team and was later finalized to play the role of Aakaash Joshi. It has been a challenge for me and a lifetime opportunity too. It's been almost one and half years that I have shifted base to Mumbai and there has been no looking back." Rohan said in a statement. 'Everest' will air on Star Plus from November 3.
