In these days of lockdown shooting for all the TV shows has been halted so the re run of very famous serials from the past are being telecast but one new show in the name ‘Maharaj Ki Jai Ho’ is appearing on Hotstar. This is perhaps the only new show and is now becoming fairly popular amongst audience.One character from the show which is grabbing eyeballs is that of Shakuni played by Aakash Dabhade.
Talking about this character Aakash Dabhade says “When we say Shakuni we remember Jeevan sahab from the 1965 mahabharat film and Gufi Paintal sahab from the mahabharat serial.To make this character interesting and worth remembering was a challenge. I had therefore decided to approach this character differently. Shakuni as a character is very complex because he is cunning under the garb of diplomacy and sweet tongue. So now the potrayal of such a character only through dialouge is not adequate so i thought to bring in my expressions and eyes. So i started fluttering my eyes to potray his cunningness.The idea of fluterring my eyes came to me when we were doing a photoshoot for the show and now people are exactly liking and loving and pointing this out as a marvellous potrayal of shakuni.Infact one of the admirers on social media compared my shakuni to that of jhonny depps Jack Sparrow of pirates of the carribean.I would really like to thank them all.Seldom u get to play a character like shakuni plus the format of the show is such that i not only got to play a cunning shakuni but a funny and a lovable shakuni as well.I have mixed all this in one and that has thankfully created a magic.I am glad and thank Star Plus,our producer,writer and director of the show David Polycarp for giving me shakuni.”
Aakash Dabhade who was appreciated for his performance in a zee 5 original film Shukranu this year is currently garnering praises for his brilliant act in MX players new web series Mastram.
