Gajendra Chauhan to portray demon on TV

Mumbai: Actor Gajendra Chauhan, former chairman of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), will soon be seen as a demon on TV.

Gajendra, best known for playing Yudhishthir in B.R. Chopra's 'Mahabharat', will essay the role of Dambhasura in Sony Entertainment Television show 'Vighnaharta Ganesh', read a statement. 

"I am portraying the role of Dambhasura -- the leader of 'rakshasas' (demons), who plans to take overlord Shiv's abode in Kailasa. I have been associated with more than 100 mythological serials in the past, but it's the first time that I am portraying the role of an 'asura' (demon). 

"It's a powerful role where he challenges Shiv in his own abode. I am sure the viewers will like the negative shade of Dambhasur that I am portraying in 'Vighnaharta Ganesh'," said Gajendra.

The actor's stint on the ongoing show will be aired next week.
