Model-turned-actor Arpit Ranka, who essays the role of Duryodhan in ‘Mahabharat’, has been shooting for the mythological drama series despite suffering from a swollen knee.
After experiencing acute pain in his knee, doctors were called from Arpit’s hometown Jaipur as well as Mumbai, who diagnosed him with knee effusion and advised complete bed-rest for three weeks.
However, the actor, who is shooting the war sequence these days on the sets in Umargaon in Valsad, Gujarat, refused to take a break from work.
“We are in our last leg of the show and this is the biggest highpoint. I can’t let my production and channel suffer because of me. As far as my injury is concerned I can always take a rest once this show ends.
“Right now my focus is the war sequence and I want to give my 100 per cent,” Arpit said in a statement.
