Professional wrestler Danish Akhtar Saifi will be seen playing the mighty Hanuman in the popular mythological series, Siya Ke Ram.
Danish, who originally hails from Bihar, is a popular name in the Indian wrestling circuits having worked his way up from humble beginnings with his sincerity and hard work. He has collaborated with big names like The Great Khali and Sangram Singh.
Says a source close to the production of the Star Plus show, “For the role of Hanuman, the makers needed someone tall, extremely strong and muscular and with a clean image. Danish is six feet six inches tall and has the body that will suit the role of Lord Hanuman.”
One look at the wrestler’s pictures on Google and it is not too difficult to guess why the giant with an imposing frame has been roped in for the role. Sources inform that the shooting will commence soon in Hyderabad.
