Mumbai: Small screen actor Praneet Bhatt, who essays Shakuni in the upcoming mythological saga `Mahabharat`, describes Shakuni as a true hero.

"I`m really fortunate to play Shakuni. He is one character other than Krishna and Bhishma, who fought for other`s cause... He is a true hero who had an unconditional love for his sister (Gandhari), which led to the story of `Mahabharat`," Praneet said in a statement.

"He went against his father, mother and the entire world just for his sister and, in my view, he`s neither totally negative nor positive," he added.

The Star Plus show will start September 16.
