Arav Chowdharry who played the pivotal role of Bhishma Pitamah shares his experience about the Kurukshetra war
Star Plus’ Mahabharat has been winning hearts of the masses all over again with the re-run since the lockdown in March 2020. With the show now gearing up for its ultimate finale with the great war of Kurukshetra, Arav Chowdharry has some insights to share on his role. Arav got acclaimed for his versatility as an actor when he played a young 25-year-old Devrat to 200 years old Bhishma. Not only has he changed his body in every stage of the age but also changed his dialogue delivery and voice as well which has been hugely appreciated and loved by all his fans and viewers.
With the upcoming track of the show, he shares details from the final fight sequence where Bhishma Pitamah meets his end.
Arav reminiscing the shoot day of the Kurukshetra War shares, “I remember shooting for this sequence and while filming we were hit by a sandstorm. The production house, keeping in mind the safety of the entire unit, stopped filming for a few hours as it was extremely difficult to see and breathe. Considering we didn’t have a bank of episodes the unit decided to shoot under supervision, all the dust you see on our faces during the sequence is real. I have learnt to be humble and patient and never give up from the character of Bhishma. I am thankful to the makers, Star Plus, Team of Writers under the supervision of Mr. Salim Khan to have such a well written role. It was the most memorable experience for me, be it the background score of Bhishma- Kshatriya Stayawatdi … to the costume, to the dialogues to makeup and Jewelry, everything was the best!!”
We would not want to miss this particular episode of the Kurukshetra War with a powerful character like Bhishma Pitamah meeting his end.
