Not all actors get lucky to grab interesting offers on television. But Rahul Sharma’s prayers and dedication bore him fruit as he was signed to play the lead character in Star Bharat’s new drama Kaal Bhairav Rahasya. The show deals with the myth and superstition revolving around a temple of Kaal Bhairav. Rahul, in an exclusive conversation with indianexpress.com, shared, “I have been a believer of Kaal Bhairav and have been worshipping him for the last five years. I would thus like to believe that this show is a blessing from him to me. I feel truly lucky to have got this offer.”
Talking about his character, the young actor shared, “I play Rahul, a city boy who wants to hunt down this myth, and bring out the truth. He is smart, intelligent and during the course of the show, the audience will get to see more of his shades. The show is not run-of-the-mill and every episode will keep you thrilled and entertained.”
Rahul, who debuted on television with Ek Ghar Banaunga, might not have a long list of shows in his kitty but he has always been associated with powerful shows and characters. When asked if he is choosy, the actor smiled to quip, “I have not reached the place where I can be too choosy. All I can say is that I have been blessed to have got some really great shows and I hope the trend continues to be so.”
Lastly when asked if he believes in supernatural phenomena and myths, Rahul said, “I don’t believe in supernatural phenomena but I do think there is another world. But I am a God believer and really keep his blessings close. As for superstitions, over the years I have matured and realised that logic holds more power.”
Kaal Bhairav Rahasya airs Monday-Friday, 7 pm on Star Bharat. It also stars Iqbal Khan, Chhavi Pandey and Sargun Kaur.
