Doli Armaano Ki would soon take a five-year leap which would see the characters in a completely new and changed avatar. Having played the ‘husband every girl wants to slap’ to the hilt, Mohit Malik, who essays the role of Samrat in the show, is going to don a bearded look.
Having served a term in the jail for being guilty on the charges of burning down Urmi’s (Neha Marda) house, Samrat will be seen getting released in a disheveled, unkempt state.
“This is the first time I’m getting to sport a beard onscreen,” says the actor, who was shocked to see himself in the mirror after the look was created.
Interestingly, Malik spent a lot of time with his makeup man as the makeover was drastic and needed a lot of fine-tuning. He took almost 10 days to get the look right. Mohit says that he loves his clean shaven look but he didn’t mind sporting a beard to get the character right.
“I have got used to it now and in fact I am loving playing the part. Unfortunately, it’s only for a few episodes as my character shaves it all off as soon as he is out from the jail,” he informs.
