Mumbai: Actor Athar Siddiqui, who has joined the cast of Paramavatar Shri Krishna, says historical and mythological shows are always challenging.
Athar has acted in a family drama (Parvarish), a suspense thriller (Private Investigator) and participated in the reality show Bachelorette India. He will now play Kaaliya Naag in Paramavatar Shri Krishna aired on &TV.
"Historical and mythological shows are always challenging. There are heavy outfits and jewellery pieces which make you feel like a King or sometimes a supervillain who can fly and have magical powers. Even the language is so different from the contemporary one," Athar said in a statement to IANS.
He has replaced actor Vinit Kakar, who started shooting for the show on December 31, 2017.
On the replacement, Vinit said: "I got a call from the creative team saying that I look too young for the role. I am happy. I believe whatever happens, happens for good. I shot for a day. I have many other offers too. I'll soon announce my other projects. I wish the new guy and the show all the best."
